Urban Kitchen Garden With Arduino

Recently I converted a counter-top wine cooler into a DIY kitchen garden for growing just about anything in my own home.

Having long enjoyed growing my own food I searched for a commercial unit to allow me to grow vegetables , herbs and micro-greens/sprouts year round. I found commercial products to significantly lack the control and enclosed-nature I desired to grow what I want, when I want without buying their proprietary seeds/pods/modules.

The unit can control the temp, humidity and soil moisture for any plants. A simple LED spotlight was hacked for the lighting element.

Hopefully this open-source build will inspire others to grow their own food at home. Perhaps this will allow anyone to achieve some self-reliance for a brighter future regardless of where they may be.

Check out my full project on Hackaday and hit that skull button if you like it. Thanks!
