I have a genuine love affair with fresh herbs, I grow them in pots, raised beds, in a greenhouse and use them for everything from cooking to face products and bath bombs. So when I saw this photo of the 'kitchens from the future', my jaw dropped. Wow! Imagine slideout drawers of fresh greens, herbs at your fingertips all year round! I drooled over this for a few minutes before starting a cyber search for possible local product or manufacturing. A girl has to keep her eco footprint small!
To my delight, there actually is a company right here in Surrey, BC as a matter of fact. They are making a micro, mini version that could fit under any countertop! Are you as excited as I am?!

You may have seen them on #CBC #Dragons Den as well as write-ups in several magazines, including #BCBusiness & #FinanciaPost. In case you missed it, Arlene Dickinson did a dragon deal with UC, here is where they are at today!
