Meet the Inventor - James Brake
I was one of those very geeky kids that you always wondered what would happen to them. I did well in Silicon Valley but I got very sick physically and emotionally. I changed my life started eating healthy then started reaching out for help in other areas of my life. My family and I moved to Hawaii in 2013 to slow down and get closer to nature. Hawaii has been a good fit for us we have been very happy here.

Are Fresh Organic Vegetables Expensive in money and or time?
The main reason most people are unhealthy is because eating 100% organic is expensive. Growing a garden big enough to not require you to go to the grocery store is very time consuming, requires land and has a steep learning curve. Those were my problems. So I built a robot to grow a garden for my

family and I. We love just walking into the backyard picking the days veggies and that's with no weeding, no digging, no watering, no adding plant food(compost/worm tea) or mulch or sprinklers or drip lines etc.  My friends started asking me to make GrowBots for them. At first I said no because I knew they are not easy to build economically. However I relented - I have some great friends that are very supportive and believe in me.

Do you want a super easy gargen?

When you buy a GrowBot it's because you want to be more healthy, lower your food bill, save time, save effort and or eat more responsibly

  • The healthiest food is food produced using organic plant foods like seaweed, compost/worm teas, compost, naturally sourced minerals etc. Eating that healthy food either fresh or minimally cooked is also helpful in preserving the nutrition.
  • The GrowBot also saves time and lowers your stress because you don't have to shop as often.
  • Lowering your food bill is pretty simple. If you have one GrowBot planted with lettuce, chard, Kale, tomatoes, cucumbers and maybe a few other things. You can have one amazing salad a day. GrowBot can grow lots of other fruits, herbs and veggies. Variety is good for you.
  • Eating responsibly is also pretty simple. Your food is not being transported by big diesel trucks/trains/boats from some farm many many many miles away. If you are not eating organic then that farm was also likely using toxic chemicals to kill bugs, weeds and mold that are also bad for you and bad for the shared environment we all live in. Those farms also have a lot of toxic chemical and fertilizer run off into the ocean which is causing dead zones in the oceans around the world. If you drive/commute to your local store then you are also helping there as well. Every little bit counts. You matter, I matter, we all matter. If we all do our part we can insure our future generations success.

I am doing everything I can to not only keep the price low but to lower the price. I believe that everyone should eat food that is healthy, convenient and sustainable. The GrowBot pays for itself in as little as 3 months but that depends greatly on how much you are paying for your food and how long your outdoor growing season is.

My Life ....
Does this sound familiar? I got out of shape and over weight in my mid-thirties. By the end of my thirties I got scared for my life which started me living a healthy life. Nothing fancy just quality food, exercise and very little stress. The GrowBot has been a big part of living a great life. In Hawaii like many other places food is incredibly expensive so not having to buy as much food is a huge help to my family. I am hoping GrowBot will be a huge help to you and your family as well.


Quality and Dedication to Service

  • 90 day satisfaction gurantee - Return your undamaged GrowBot in the first 90 days for any reason for a full refund on the cost of the GrowBot. Shipping not included.
  • 2 year parts warranty - We will replace failed parts and take back the old part for recycling. Labor is not included but most parts only require a screw driver to replace.
  • Estimated life of your GrowBot is 5+years. The parts that are likely to fail are the feed pumps($3), circulation pumps($5), relays ($8), and valves ($8) - prices are for 2015.  The reason those parts are likely to fail is because they are mechanical and they are small. Fixing them is in our opinion cheap and easy.
