SEED Installations

SEED offers an Ikea-like flexibility and warm aesthetic in a variety of settings. Whether it’s the DIY tinkerer, the frequent traveler, the hobbyist wanting right-out-of-the-box solutions, or the raised bed grower, our customer wants an easy way to keep their plants alive. 


The SEED compact irrigation system increases crop yields to feed a growing global population, in a sustainable, innovative and responsible way.


Our Strategy

How do you address food security and reduce agriculture’s impact on climate change? Our strategy has a twofold objective: promote soil regeneration through an efficient, user-intuitive product and create resiliency and economic growth through food production. SEED customers are “conscious consumers” interested in growing plants in various configurations, while providing a benefit to communities in need.

Our Model

We bring SEED to underserved communities by promoting a conscious consumerism focused on sustainability and positive social impact. Under our one-for-one sales model for every kit sold, one is sent to a farmer in a developing community to implement the user-friendly technology in their fields. The product is not simply a gift, but a tool to increase production yields and address a core cause of food insecurity. 

Future Forward

Reducing food insecurity and increasing resilience requires improved irrigation, increased yields, better soils, biological resource conservation and a flexible, future-forward delivery system. The sourcing of our user-friendly kit is transparent, based in ethical practices. and creates education and employment opportunities in the agtech sector for women and traditionally hard-to-employ groups.


Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.
