The story behind the HydroArtPod — healthy, delicious, chemical-free food. Save big on your groceries. Easier than making coffee.

When people hear the word entrepreneur, they often think of someone daring and innovative, constantly taking risks and moving forward. We hardly talk about the ones who start small, with a little more than a dream and a lot of heart. 

This is the story of one such entrepreneur, Aline Pate. A story that will inspire anyone looking to start their own business or make a difference in the lives of everyone around them. Here is a story about how Aline began working on her invention, while navigating motherhood and being a wife.

When I created HydroArtPod, I was frustrated with the quality of the plastic-wrapped food from the supermarket and often worried about how safe it is.”

This means that we have to find a way to increase food production by 110% from today’s level to meet the high demand for food as we currently know it.

No green thumb

As a mother of two, a wife, and a successful entrepreneur from Germany, Aline wanted a way to guarantee that the food her family consumes is fresh and chemical-free. So even though she had zero experience with gardening, she decided to grow her organic greens in her backyard.

 

There is just something about the freshness of organic produce that just can’t be beaten. Nothing tastes better than something you’ve grown yourself. But starting a garden can seem like a daunting task. Where do you start? How much space do you need? How do you know which seeds are right, for what season? There’s just a lot to consider.

With Aline, every time she thought she was getting results, her tiny sprouts of green would have bugs eating holes in them. Sometimes, the growing process would take so long that she had to stop due to the unfavorable conditions of the seriously hot summer. She was clearly not getting the results she wanted.

Kicking off the Sustainable journey

Aline did not give up despite her busy life as a mother of two. She certainly had no time to manage a garden or deal with the challenges that came with it. So if she was going to make her wish of growing fresh, organic greens herself come true, the process had to be somewhat automated and require less time and effort than a regular garden. 

Aline wanted to build something beautiful enough to put inside her home and not have an ugly garden that takes up space.

She started researching sustainable living and ways to grow food indoors and learned about hydroponics — growing plants without soil, using only water and nutrients.

So in the past four years, after extensive research and testing out different materials and plants, she finally has a working, living indoor garden. All this hard work and dedication birthed an easy-to-use, very efficient, Smart, and elegant indoor garden system, a first of its kind.

What a strange place to live in at the moment. Who would have ever thought there would come a day where governments would close schools and public entertainment and companies would make people work from home.

I was following the news recently and saw with surprise how many people felt the need to secure themselves with adequate groceries and other essentials. We see empty supermarket shelves and people fighting over toilet paper (oh the TP!).

But it’s not just the “tail” end of the process that is currently affected. Leaving home to go shopping in times like this can be hard for some and many are worried about how bad it might get and how they will be able to feed their families. Fresh produce isn’t something you can stock up on as it has to be fresh in order to preserve the vitamins.

Did you know that China is the world largest producer of spinach with 85% of global production? In times where viruses such as the new coronavirus hits this is not a comforting situation. While Popeye used to eat his spinach out of a tin, nowadays we prefer our spinach to be fresh, ideally right from the garden.

Fresh green spinach, essential for everyone that wants to eat healthy food.

You may be surprised to learn that studies from University of California Davis and Penn State University show that some spinach can lose up to 90% of its vitamin C value within the first 24 hours after being harvested, and up to 50% of its folate (DNA and cell health) and carotenoids (vitamin A and antioxidants) after a week, even when refrigerated. It may help to wet a tissue and put it together with the spinach in a resealable plastic bag, keeping some air in the bag to avoid them getting squashed.

You might be an absolute expert or if not you might be interested to know that there are three main varieties of spinach. There is the dark green spinach that you get in supermarkets, the flat smooth spinach often referred to as baby spinach (easy for salads for example) and finally the spinach that has slightly crinkled leaves. In a survey done by Bon Appetite Magazine it was found that more than 56% of people eating vegetables say that spinach is their favorite one.

But what can you do now? You love spinach and you know about all the healthy benefits of this super-green superfood, but you want to be independent of the global supply chain. Not only because of the virus but also because you care about the vitamin content your leafy greens are having. Why not start a home hydroponics garden? While there are various appliances out there small and large, if you have a little space and are into DIY you can easily set up your own system with supplies from your local stores.

However you do it, channel your inner Popeye with lots of fresh, healthy spinach – especially if you are raising little superheroes!

Stay safe, and eat healthy.
