Our founder, Hank, has always been fond of gardening. In 2017, he decided to take a sabbatical and, during that year, dedicate more time to his hobbies. But the Chicago winter came to mess with his plans. It blocked him from working with his plants and also killed everything that he had planted. It was a nightmare.
Being the entrepreneurial man he was, he decided to find a way to grow and harvest during the winter months, and discovered home-hydroponics. From gigantic (and ugly) plastic tubs to pretty but useless countertop gardens, Hank tried everything to get to grow real produce inside his home and was unable to match something that looked nice and performed well.
It was right then, when Harvest₂O was born.
