Zooey Deschanel wants to help you grow your own food at home

Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik just launched a startup company that aims to help people grow their own herbs and vegetables in an urban environment. “With Lettuce Grow, we are committed to inspiring people to develop a new, more healthy relationship with the food they eat. We want to preserve the environment for future generations and to help create a better food system for all of us,” the pair said on their website (HERE). The company offers a device called the Farmstand, which is a self-watering and self-fertilizing tower, to grow your herbs and veggies. Then they also offer the option to join as a member, which means they send you seedlings every month based on your preferences, as well as recipes to use what you’ve grown.
