Modern Sprout was created by two people who live and work in a tiny apartment. As avid cooks, eaters, and project planners, they decided the next logical step was to grow our own garden. Unfortunately, they have no space. (Their small Chicago apartment doesn’t have a yard).
They bought planter boxes and filled them with botanicals, then stuffed them on the balcony, in windows, and any other places they’d soak in sunlight. Despite their enthusiastic efforts, they soon found ourselves surrounded by dry, lifeless shrubs. They were desperate for a fool-proof way to cultivate healthy herbs, vegetables, and flowers, yet maintain our self-esteem. They wanted a victory garden, not planters full of defeat. After researching non-traditional options, they found hydroponics. A method of cultivation that’s clean, self-maintaining, and yields fantastic results, hydroponics immediately seemed perfect for busy people. But every kit they tried was expensive, difficult to set up, and more homely than homey.
Unimpressed with their options, they planted the seeds for Modern Sprout. Now they provide planters that are simple, stylish, and fertile with success. Just add water.
