Inspiring personal food production with a low-maintenance home gardening system
- With MyFood, a family of 4 needs only 24 sqm to grow the vegetables they need
- 90% less water than a traditional garden, no pesticides, no fertilizers
- Connected system to monitor your garden from a distance
Mickaël Gandecki (consultant and software engineer), Johan Nazaraly (engineer) and Matthieu Urban (marketing professional) are working on MyFood project together. Startled on how dependent we all are on the system, when it comes to our food supply, the three decided to launch a project to help people reach their food autonomy. The believe that often a very small piece of bright technology can have an incredible leverage for people.
