Indoor gardens are nothing new; they have been around long before their recent boom in popularity, but the Peat Gardening Kit has a twist that will make it stand out amongst the crowd. Targeting children, it not only introduces fresh produce into the home, it also teaches kids the importance of responsibility and healthy eating. As the designer points out, "The product hopes to remove preconceptions towards growing vegetables, making it fun and engaging."

Conceived by Nottingham Trent University product design student Edward Barber, the Peat Gardening Kit can be used by adults, but it does include a home-mailing program that sends kids seasonal seeds and activity booklets with easy instructions and cute names like 'Carl the Carrot.'

The Peat Gardening Kit also comes with a windowsill-sized greenhouse and tools.
