Title: Grove Lab Presentation by Liz McCormack
Date: April 20, 2015
Liz McCormack came to MassArt to share with freshmen the story of the Somerville startup, Grove Labs. Grove builds beautiful products to make local, healthy food accessible to everyone on the planet. They’re a team from MIT empowering people with tools to easily grow their own fruits and vegetables right in their homes, year round. They believe that home farming appliances will become as ubiquitous as refrigerators, and will help offset current globally unsustainable agricultural practices.
Their products are easy to use, stackable plant growth modules. They imagine a future where families grow 20-50% of their own food with floor to ceiling growing appliances in entire rooms in their homes which they refer to as a grove
