Click and Grow Wall Farm and Wall Farm Mini: The Future of Farming?

I love my Click and Grow Herb Garden so much that I have two of them; one grows flowers and the other grows edibles. With the success that the company’s had with their table-top sized products, it’s no surprise to me that they have taken their calling to the next level by creating the Click and Grow Wall Farm.

Ready for the zombie apocalypse, I see.

Imagine farming indoors — with no pesticides, fungicides, hormones, grasshoppers, caterpillars, or wildlife to worry about — all you need is some blank wall space, a power outlet, and you’re in business. There are two models available: the Click and Grow Wall Farm, and the Wall Farm mini.

Let’s start with the Wall Farm:

Click and grow says that their new wall farms will provide you with “fresh food for every single meal 30% faster, using 95% less water, and with 600% more vitamins than anything else on the market.”

The Wall Farm measures 53” x 15” x 82”, and it has the capacity to grow up to 57 plants; it offers automated watering, modifiable timer settings, online control and monitoring, and it costs $799 for the basic unit — not counting the plants.

When you buy it, you also sign on for a $59.95 monthly subscription which includes 20 refills. The refills available include:

When the Wall Farm is shipped out, you will select the plants you want to subscribe to via a form.

 

Imagine a Wall Farm in your kitchen, office, school, or bunker (ha!) — this is a neat idea that can keep fresh greens in your belly without the need to farm outdoors. I think it would also be perfect for those who live in apartments (with no space to garden) or people with accessibility issues who otherwise can’t garden outdoors.

And for those who don’t have as much space or need as many plants, there is the Wall Farm Mini:

The Wall Farm Mini measures 53” x 15” x 62”, and it has the capacity to grow up to 38 plants; it offers semi-manual watering (you fill the reservoir once a month or so, and it disperses the water), an app that offers plant tips and deal. While it’s not connected, similarly to the Click and Grown Herb Garden it will still do most of the work for you. It has a launch price of $199 for the basic unit (it will be $299 retail) — not counting the plants. I hope to have one of these to review soon, so I’ll be able to tell you more by the end of the year.

Once again,when you buy it you’ll sign on for a $59.95 monthly subscription which includes your choices from the 20 refills I mentioned above.

 

What makes the Click and Grow system so special? Well, that answer has always been the combination of their special grow lights, the water reservoir, and the efficient smart soil refill pods that they use.

The backbone of our technology is the specially developed nanomaterial Smart Soilthat keeps the level of oxygen, water, pH and nutritional ingredients at an optimal level. The Smart Soil is made of natural renewable sources and is biodegradable.

The combination of these items takes all of the guesswork out of the process; you simply set things up, plug it in, add water, and wait. Within a week, you’ll have sprouts; in one to two months, you’ll have plants producing food (or flowers, if that’s what you prefer).

Click and Grow takes the guesswork out of the process; raising the plants indoors removes many of the reasons gardens fail. If you want to grow a garden but space, time, bugs, wildlife, accessibility, or heck — your black thumb — have always been an issue in the past, then the Click and Grow Wall Fam or Wall Farm Mini may be just what you need! And if space is seriously a problem, there’s always the Herb Garden that I recently reviewed. See? Something for everyone. 🙂
