We love the UrbiPod because it takes all of the guesswork out of growing & saves money (as well as food miles & packaging waste) whilst avoiding the need to accept less than fresh supermarket herbs.

You can easily grow fresh herbs, salads, microgreens, flowering plants, even cherry tomatoes indoors and all year-round.

Whilst the automated energy-efficient LED system replicates sunlight & provides the ideal environment that can deliver plant growth up to five times faster than outdoors.

Urbotanica put every effort into environmentally considerate packaging, a couple of examples: This kit comes packed in a cardboard box which is unbleached and no longer colour printed, and they put no extra packing material around the unit. After some years of trialling they identified the product is strong enough to withstand the rigors of shipping without stuffing's, so they don't put any in. The 4 seed collections are are now bound with a recycled paper wrap label, and they use the sticker waste between the labels to wrap the other way around the seed packets to secure. Whilst making the UrbiPods from Recyclable PE/PET blend is currently the best manufacturing option available for Aussie production at this time, the future plan when available domestically is to make the unit out of a bamboo/cornstarch mix. Like Eden Tree Eco, Urbotanica exist to reduce waste, & therefore are always working on improvement where possible.
The big picture issue this product addresses:
To support people to grow their own fresh herbs. 40% of fresh produce ends up in landfill, and 38% of 10Mil Australian households spend between $5-10 on fresh herbs a week (Approx. 2-4 plastic clamshell containers) That is millions of plastic clamshell containers every week, the Urbipod can help divert from landfills and oceans.
In addition to the support you will always get from us at Eden Tree Eco, the team at Urbotanica have earned a great reputation for their excellent after sales service and 'growing' advice. Being the only indoor smart garden 100% manufactured in Australia truly earns them the title of Australia's no 1 home smart garden product. For both product and service.
