Gardening isn’t what it used to be and there are almost just as many reasons to pick up gardening as there are to delay enjoying the hobby. Exercising your green thumb once required experience, a flexible schedule, and commitment. Now, the often therapeutic activity of cultivating plants and vegetables is something many people on the go can partake in, stress-free.

Advanced ecosystem EcoGarden allows users to grow their own fresh vegetables and herbs throughout all 12 months of the year. Increasing research tells us it’s more beneficial to know exactly where your food comes from, and if possible, avoid the chemicals, pesticides, and additives that come in many convenient food packages. And with EcoGarden, everyone can add a little more well-deserved self-care and wellness into their daily routines, monitoring and adjusting the growing cycle from seed to harvest with the help of their app, Ecobloom.

Once connected to WiFi, gardening blossoms (sorry, I had to) into an activity that anyone can do from anywhere at any time, so those who have always wanted to grow their own basil and make their own pesto from scratch don’t need to worry when they leave town and forget to water their plant.

The app also allows users to check on their dish using ‘Aquaponics,’ an ancient growing technique that recycles fish waste into food for the plants, while the plants filter the water that helps sustains the fish. Once you feed the fish, the fish provide nutrients for the plants, and the plants become your chemical and pesticide-free pride and joy. Translation: you can take a moment out of your busy day, pause, nurture your fish and plants from afar and reap the benefits later. No pet or plant sitters required.

The app also enables users to water their plants, feed fish, change the temperature, and react accordingly to their specific instructions. Wellness begins with feeding the mind and body with thoughts and nutrients that make us stronger, more content, and keep us feeling fulfilled. Sometimes that begins with consuming a diet that you know is fresh and organic, or being able to mindfully enjoy your favorite vegetable that you grew yourself.
