The Urban Cultivator Makes Growing Greens Year-Round Simple

The Urban Cultivator is an enclosed hydroponic system designed to make it easier for those living in inclement weather to grow their own veggies and herbs year-round. The Urban Cultivator is about the size of a dishwasher and is self-controlled requiring only a dose of organic fertilizer once a week and a water hookup.

The Urban Cultivator comes in two styles: kitchen and commercial. The kitchen model comes in two sizes and is meant to feed a family. The commercial model is bigger and is meant to be used by restaurants looking to cut their vegetable and herb spending. The kitchen version sells for $2,200 whereas the commercial model goes for $6,000. This may seem like a steep price to pay, but it could end up being a steal in the long run as fresh and organic veggies still cost a pretty penny.
