Are integrators ready to test their green thumbs? Natufia, a multi-award-winning research lab specializing in hydroponic smart gardens, hopes so. The company is making its debut at CEDIA Expo 2022 in Dallas with what surely promises to be the most unique offering at the event: indoor gardens that use smart technology to allow clients to grow their own food… as much as one full head of lettuce every 2 days!
The Natufia Smart Garden is the company’s first product, which set the standard in indoor gardening. Now, the Natufia One is launching as an $895 accessible indoor garden for homes, community spaces, and offices.
According to the company, the new product poised to catalyze a sea change in how people access fresh, sustainable food in increasingly urbanizing environments.
Natufia’s technology enables fresh plants and herbs to grow year-round in the very locations where they’re eaten, minimizing the environmental impact of the food supply chain—by reducing waste, packaging, pollution, and food miles.
The plug-and-play garden can grow up to 20 different leafy greens, herbs and vegetables at one time, while an automated watering and lighting system ensures a never-ending supply (up to one head of lettuce every other day) of fresh, pesticide-free produce that retains its flavor and nutritional value—Natufia-grown plants have a 200% higher vitamin content than commercially available equivalents.
Built for people who wish to be closer to their food in both a literal and metaphorical sense but lack the time and opportunity to grow produce in a traditional garden, Natufia One is designed to take any and all guesswork and hassle out of the process.
With Natufia One, urban dwellers longing for a reliable supply of cost-effective produce will be able to grow their own in a three-step process requiring the bare minimum of maintenance: On day one, the seedpods are planted in the nursery, similarly to a Nespresso pod.
On day 10, the seedlings are moved to the cup, and around the one-month mark, plants will be ready for harvesting. Empty growing cups are then easy to clean and refill as more seedlings become ready for the grow pillar.
Natufia’s seedpod portfolio has a wide variety of plants available. Launching in winter 2022 and retailing at $895, Natufia One will be on full display (and available with an exclusive discount) at CEDIA Expo 2022 (booth #30091), where visitors will be able to see and feel the future of a reliable, healthy, and planet-conscious food supply chain.
