Forager is a smart growing system that connects its users with mother nature. It educates users on how edible plants grow in the wild and equips them with the knowledge to grow these plants on their own. 

The goal of Forager is to educate upcoming generations on the conditions of growing edibles in order to create a more sustainable future. In areas containing wild edibles a user collects soil samples with the Forager pen and brings them back to the Forager base. The base reads the sample and gives the user readings on the soil composition and weather conditions from the area surrounding the samples origin. It teaches them how to replicate wild conditions and encourages the exploration and growth of edibles. It excites users about the potential of growing their own food and increases awareness of sustainable growing practices and food production.
