How it all started
After moving from Botswana to Ithaca, Michael Eaton realized how much he missed having a garden with fresh herbs and greens readily available. As a junior mechanical engineer at Cornell University, he decided that he wanted to create something so he could grow culinary herbs in his home. Something that would overcome all seasonal and space constraints that made growing indoors so difficult. Realizing that others could benefit from such an innovation, he approached his friend Santi Alegria about his idea. And the company was born.
