From the small nation of Estonia (Northern Europe), with a small population of 1.3 million people comes a unique high-tech kitchen garden.
Called the Natufia Kitchen Garden, it is a standing cabinet with glass windows that is a hydroponic growing system designed to grow lettuces, herbs and tomatoes. Able to hold from 32 to 64 plants, the inventors claim a family of four can eat out of it every day.
The Natufia Kitchen Garden is a fully-autonomous growing machine that keeps the plants healthy and alive regardless of whether or not you have a green thumb. This novel kitchen appliance that grows green food is priced at around $14,000. The company website www.natufia.com claims the price is universal regardless of geographical location. Does this mean free shipping?
