The Story of AeroGrow
Growing fresh food and flowers lifts the spirit and nurtures the soul. But for most people, the nurturing ends when winter begins. AeroGrow founder Michael Bissonnette said, "Wouldn't it be great to have fresh herbs, flowers and veggies growing in your home, any time of year?". So he and a group of like-minded innovators married that notion to aeroponics, a highly efficient gardening technology in which plants grow in water, nutrients and air.
After four years, dozens of prototypes, and hundreds of seed evaluations, the AeroGarden was born and today there are over 500,000 enthusiastic AeroGarden customers. Michael is awed by the response. "It's amazing", he says. "We grew some basil, and started a revolution."
