NUTRIENT IMPREGNATED HERBCONES PLACED WITHIN CERAMIC DOME
Home cooking in the 21st century has experienced an undeniable boom, as people around the globe no longer search for the nearest fast food venue, but focus on cooking quality foods from the bottom up in their own home kitchens. Fresh herbs, once a rare find, are now abundantly available and widely used in kitchens around the world.
Herbs are generally sold either already pre-packed in plastic or in plant form, but the shelf life is minimal, very often not exceeding two days. Both waste and cost are problematic within the present model, raising questions concerning viable product sustainability.
The water that sits (continually) in the base of the herb dome is soaked up through the felt Cones (like a sponge), allowing for the natural release of the impregnated nutrients that maintain healthy plant life.
