Automatically increase the demand for indoor gardening

“We have seen a 300% increase in demand compared to last year,” said co-founder and president Kevin Jacqueline. “In general, with the epidemic, people have more time and home to produce their own food. It’s a fun way to keep kids engaged, and the educational aspect of growing your own food is important. It is good to see people being more careful about where their food comes from. Food prices have risen, so this is a great way to get cheap and fresh produce throughout the year.

Lack of fresh produce
Kevin has been teaching fresh food in northern Canadian communities. “At -40 degrees Celsius, we did not even have the desired fresh produce. Frozen pizzas cost $ 40 each.

Founders Connor and Kevin

During the masters’ time, he researched the production of home-grown crops at an affordable price in northern Canada. This is how Vertical got started with entrepreneur Connor Ted. Once the business model was developed, they worked on R&D objects and launched their first experimental product.

It is a technology that can be up to 12 cm below the ground and more than 600 cm vertically.

AEVE and Eve
One of the products is AEVA, a home-grown vegetable that can be grown all year round, anywhere in the house. AEVA users can grow up to 8 pounds (3.6 kg) of green per month.

It looks like a 177cm tall, 91cm wide and 20cm deep. AEVA users can grow up to 16 plants at a time, which takes 4-6 weeks from sowing to harvest.


The EVA is a small version of the AEVA indoor garden. Size 145 cm tall, 46 cm wide and 21 cm deep. EVE can grow 12 plants at a time, which is 6 pounds (2.7 kg) green per month.


There is a lot of competition for space, so Just Vertical has doubled itself and its product lines as furniture. “Everywhere you look today, the tide of protectionist sentiment is flowing. Everywhere you look today, the tide of protectionist sentiment is flowing.

“We are making our product line more efficient and IOT enabled, and we are expanding into new geographical areas globally by 2022.” Just Vertical is currently sold only in the United States and Canada. However, you can ship special orders to Europe, South America and Asia.

Trim portfolio
The team has so far killed more than 200 species of plants, says Kevin. They currently offer 30 different varieties, as well as current products that are gaining popularity online. The garden also allows the whole family to grow leaves, flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs throughout the year. “We can grow pumpkins, petunias and marigolds,” he said.

Once the garden is pre-assembled, this will allow users to experience plug-ins and games. The garden’s very bright, dim LED lights usually light 16-18 hours a day, and watering occurs automatically every half hour. Because it is an open growing cabinet, the lights can be dimmed if they are too bright.

Just like the vertical raw material uses three times the bottom line, the sustainable approach in mind, FSC-certified wood and recycled plastics are used only in the processes.
