Small Space Gardening: A Kit to Grow Windowsill Herbs

April 14, 2016

Inspired by their life in a tiny apartment, Chicago-based designers Nick Behr and Sarah Burrows devised a space-saving way to grow herbs—without a garden, soil, or a space bigger than a windowsill.

Raising more than $60,000 from a Kickstarter campaign in 2013 enabled them to launch their Modern Sprout collection of hydroponic kits. Our favorite is a stylish  (and reusable) self-watering herb kit:

The Eco Planters ($30) also are available directly from Modern Sprout.

The kit comes with instructions and materials, including a hemp wick to draw up water into a stainless steel pot, to sprout seeds in a grow medium (a coco pith disk and pebbles).
