I never did colaborizm project and posted this without expecting anything. Well if you read the story with my boy or google’d “Sprouts” you already know that sprouts and greens are miracle food. You need just clean, non-GMO seeds, which is easier and much cheaper to find than non-GMO food. Also by growing your own food you avoid the chemicals that today go hand by hand with mass agricultural production and end up in your body. Also, you can grow mushrooms in the sprouter (I just added a photo in the description)
And best of all, it consumes very little water and electricity about $3 per month in total.
I started making sprouters by request of friends, who liked our prototype very much. Then they showed it to others, they also wanted it and I ended up with over 2000 pieces assembled and sold to a network of friends. The feedback is very positive, the machine underwent numerous improvements and this makes me think it is truly a solution for people who want organic LIVE food on their table. And possibly life saver for countries like Africa - it can easily be converted to work on solar panel, since it operates on 12V DC (except the pump)
However here, in Bulgaria, the high government corruption and the lack of money (I barely make any living for my family) makes it IMPOSSIBLE to organise production in a larger scale.
I’ve been thinking to start a well planned crowd funding on website, like Indiegogo. But have no idea how.
Also, I could make it available to the world in a form of DIY (Do It Yourself) kits with detailed drawings and possibly video instructions. But this is also out of my possibilities.
That is why I decided to publish it here.
