Welcome to Urban Leaf!
Growing stuff is hard. Especially for apartment dwellers. So we made it easier with a patent-pending design that turns a decorative bottle into a full time plant-sitter. It takes the pressure off of you and keeps your plants happy.
One day we hope to reinvent the food system, but for now, we’re focused on bringing a little bit of edible greenery into your life. We want to transform the world’s food system, one edible windowsill garden at a time. It’s an ambitious goal, but every windowsill counts!

what is urban leaf all about?
Urban Leaf empowers people just like you to experience the joy and satisfaction of growing their own food in any space, even a tiny New York City apartment. Rob and Nate’s original product is an eco-friendly beginner hydroponic unit that’s designed for the complete beginner. It essentially allows plants to water themselves through a patented hydroponic process. Now anyone can have a successful garden in their home, even if they don’t remember to water it.
