Hi Lauren, I'm sorry I didn't get this message until too late, but I did update my proposal last Saturday with a fleshed-out business model canvas, a description of garden types and intents in building, and a rough sketch of a prototype.
Hi Mark, Sorry for the delay! I'm glad you like my idea, and I think yours is a wonderful idea too! Funny enough, a few days ago I saw in my local paper a front-page article about a Rochester-area high school that created a successful hydroponic garden of their own. It's inspiring, because it proves it can be done! :) I'd love to hear your ideas! There are so many ways to create hydroponic gardens, and what makes them innovative is that there's room to create new designs. Since I hope to allow custom designs per project, new ideas are always welcome. Thank you!
Hi David, While I was focusing mainly on creating hydroponic gardens, I felt that using the fabric from Nike Grind for fabric planters was too useful to be left unsaid. Fabric planters are great for growing plants because the fabric allows roots to air prune, allowing plants to grow healthier in soil or some other growing material. I love the idea of innovating gardens to show anyone that they can have a green thumb too!
