NEDERLAND — Startup Solar Greens Co. in Nederland is working on fulfilling the first 16 orders of its balcony-size greenhouses, with plans for an official launch in the fall once pre-production and external field-testing are complete.
The hope is that the My Terrace Farmer greenhouses will appeal to a variety of gardeners and would-be gardeners who might have limited outdoor space or live in a harsh climate with a short growing season like the mountains.
The company wrapped up a Kickstarter.com crowdfunding campaign earlier this month, raising nearly $21,000. Since then, another $6,000 in orders has come in. Solar Greens owner Greg Ching said he’s hoping to have the Kickstarter and other pre-orders filled by April.
