The Mele Cultivate System uses hydroponics to provide the freshest fruit and vegetables daily. Once a Mele pod is bought and plugged into the system the plant inside can be left to grow. When the plant is ready for harvest, compost the used complastic pod and replace with another of your choice.
A basket of 26 organic items may have traveled the equivalent of 6 times around the equator before it gets to your plate. In doing so it releases the same amount of CO2 as a four bedroom house in 8 months. The Cultivate System reduces these food miles and is a step towards a more natural and sustainable life.
