One of the best things about growing in an indoor garden system is that you are able to feed yourself and your family food that is not only good for you, but safe for you. Giving people the ability to grow their own fresh lettuces, herbs and vegetables year round brings people one step closer to their food and knowing where it comes from, who has handled it, and how it’s been treated. When you watch your food grow on your kitchen counter, you’ll know that it’s as fresh and healthy as it can be, because you picked it yourself, minutes before enjoying it. Make sure to use our clean organic plant food can help speed up the process to get you enjoying fresh produce in no time. Hopefully, that closer relationship with food gets people thinking about where the rest of their food comes from, and how sustainable, healthy and good for them (and the planet) all their food is.
Produce grown in your own kitchen does not carry the risk of foodborne illness via bacterial contamination that can come from commercial packaging, handling, or soil organisms (e.g., bacteria such as E. coli).
And we know that food grown in an AeroGarden can actually be better for you than produce from your supermarket. There are actually more vitamins, antioxidants and phytonutrients in AeroGrown produce than in most “certified organic” produce purchased from the supermarket.
Hundreds of studies have shown that many vitamins, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients degrade during post-harvest transportation and storage (average time 5-14 days) before reaching the consumer. Supermarket produce is often picked before ripe - before vitamins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients reach maximum levels.
AeroGarden produce is as “local” as you can possibly get! Keeping your food chain short maintains the nutritional value of what you eat, is better for the planet and keeps illness-causing germs at bay. From hydroponic microgreens to veggie seed kits, start growing your own produce today with AeroGarden.
