Josh Smith: Anyone Can Garden

Designed by an international team based in New York City, Aquaweb is a product that aims to help urban food growers collect, filter and store moisture with a modular water sourcing and management system. What this mean is that Aquaweb helps distributes water it collects for greenhouses and vertical farms to save energy and to be undisturbed by outside elements. This product was in the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge competition and was awarded the $100,000 prize money to help crowd source the idea. Where as Aquaweb was inspired by a butterfly’s wings to absorb and capture moisture and light, Josh Smith’s smart greenhouse is inspired by convenience. Another innovative product is taking shape across the country in Reno, Nevada.

Josh Smith’s Modular Greenhouses allows even someone who has never gardened to be able to grow their own delicious organic food with just the use of a simple app. The smart app allows step by step surveillance through cameras and management of seeds to harvest. All this app needs is WiFi and one can manage their garden anytime and anywhere. Greenhouses are easy to setup with their quick assembly design. The greenhouse is simply panels that can be folded out and made secure with a few screws. Quality is not lost with the aluminum material that can withstand a category 4 hurricane if built for outside use.

Josh Smith is the founder and CEO of Modular Greenhouses who studied at the University of Nevada, Reno. With 15 years of star-up experience, Smith has successfully launched 3 startups in areas such as Health and Wellness, Home & Garden, and Biotechnology. Smith believes that it is a travesty that children are mostly eating junk food in their developmental years of their childhood. He hopes that by making gardening easier and accessible, this will help remedy this issue. Josh Smith’s Reno-based Modular Greenhouse can be backed at his Kickstarter.

This can be done by constantly ensuring that the system is free from any debris and also making sure that the HVAC or AC unit is at least some feet away from any vegetative matter. Run an inspection on the refrigerant lines on a regular basis and replace the air filter after every three months. Also, you could also use the help of a professional to certify your maintenance strategies.

Ensure that you have a ceiling fan as it improves the circulation of cool air in a room. It is a very convenient cooling strategy as it consumes way less energy as compared to a light bulb of 100 watts. Another strategic method is to invest in a programmable thermostat as it is simpler to adjust as compared to a traditional one.

Goettl is an industry that is located in Arizona and has been able to provide air conditioning services to many residents around this region. In 1926, the Goettl brothers came up with the idea of this company, leading them to seek opportunities in Phoenix and Arizona.

The brothers, John, Adam, & Bill founded the first air conditioning company at Phoenix which later grew to an international level. They became pioneers in the massive production of coolers as they also developed more devices on cooling and heating. Recently in 2013, the grandsons of Adam Goettl, Ted and Adam founded the High Desert Mechanical of Goettl.
