Love our new AVA Byte!

Really easy to use, beautiful on our countertop, and grateful we don't need to water. Love how quickly our herbs grow!

Fresh & Delicious.

[Mixed Salad Greens pod pack] is probably my favorite I've done. The taste of this garden is second to none. Fresh salad cut right before your eyes, no chemicals, no dust, no one else's hands, from seed to my mouth.

Our Story

Nothing beats homegrown herbs and veggies. But growing at home isn’t a reality for most of us. We don’t have enough time or sunlight to grow a thriving garden.

We feel you. Chase and I live in cramped apartments. We’re lucky to see an hour of daily sunlight. It's no wonder less than 19% of home gardens are grown in apartments.

That’s why we created the AVA Byte.

It’s kind of like having a green thumb on autopilot. Ava uses AI to help you grow healthy plants—fast. Even if your apartment never sees the sun.

We're a team of energetic, forward-thinking foodies who are on a mission to help millions of people—like you—get growing.

— Chase & Val

How? With "growing recipes" developed by our plant scientists. These monitor and instruct our 5 environmental sensors, 1 top-down HD camera, a self-circulating water pump, and NASA-inspired full spectrum LEDs. 

Also, you can keep track of your smart garden with Android, iOS, Google Home, and Amazon Alexa.
