Dear Kambrians,

We are excited to introduce the Home Garden Tech DAO - Where Gardens Blossom With Tech To Green The Planet, a forefront effort dedicated to integrating technology into home gardening and building a network of home gardens for a more sustainable future. Our aim is to provide gardeners worldwide with innovative solutions, community support and society-oriented, fostering greener, more connected ecosystems from the comfort of their own homes. 

In this article, we would like to introduce an overview about this DAO. If this resonates with you, join us to be a part of this social impact.

Co-owning technology via Kambria DAOs

A DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) is a community using blockchain to facilitate decentralized autonomy. The control is spread out among all community members who use governance tokens to vote on DAO’s rules or changes, voting power is equivalent to the number of tokens they possess. By this we can empower the community with trust, transparency and automation, and enable open-source solutions to be commercialized by their community.

Each Kambria DAO is started by a Dev Team submitting their proposal with a solution of technology they can develop and open for the community to co-own.Communities collectively buy into the solution by participating in the DAO. Then the Dev Team starts to develop the solution and the development progress will be managed monthly. The DAO as owners of the solution will decide and contribute to the commercialization of the solution, as well as get paid from their contribution.

Please check this page for a more detailed model and FAQs of Kambria DAOs.

Why Home Garden Tech?

Our motivation for developing Home Garden Tech DAO starts from an intense passion to contribute to address dedicated environmental, social, and health issues through innovative solutions. Here are why we initiated this transforming adventure:

  • Contribute to environmental sustainability: Home gardening plays a part in mitigating climate change and preserving ecosystems by reducing carbon footprints and promoting sustainable practices.
  • Promote public health and well-being: Accessible green spaces created through home gardening provide avenues for stress reduction and mental well-being, fostering healthier communities and lifestyles.
  • Inspire education and empowerment: Home gardening initiatives empower individuals with essential skills and knowledge about plant sources, environmental impact, and self-sufficiency.
  • Encourage community engagement and resilience: The home garden community brings people together to exchange ideas, mutual support and collective action in order to develop a network to green the earth from their own gardens.

Some statistics we would like to highlight are:

  • 55% of American households engage in gardening
  • Americans spent over $47 billion on gardening supplies.

Home Garden Tech DAO Solution

Suggested features

From the advantages listed above, Home Garden Tech DAO intends to use technological solutions to optimize and support gardeners, as well as to connect the community in order to encourage others to develop their own gardens.

  • The technology solution entails an IoT kit designed for the upkeep of home gardens, offering features such as automated watering for when you're traveling. 
  • The solution integrates AI-driven image recognition, allowing users to learn about plants, their names and their characteristics, etc.
  • Additionally, the solution creates a map of home gardens in the network, promoting the goal of “greening the earth”.
  • Users can also join the community to share their experiences, reviews and photos.

Some references from current solutions

We can learn from current solutions about the common features, such as:

Combined solutions:

  • Garden Tags: a complete app for gardeners of all abilities. Get plant identification, planting inspiration, growing advice, and plant care instructions all in one app.
  • Lepot - Hydronponics: By integrating indoor hydroponic gardens with a smart app, you can track plant growth in real-time, automate water, light, and temperature control, and conveniently administer nutrients.

Garden Tags - Plant and flower identification, garden design, inspiration and advice

Letpot - hydroponic gardening indoor system, easily growing herbs, vegetables, or flower varieties no longer require a green thumb.

Single solutions:

  • Smart Garden Irrigation:
    • CloudRain customizes watering to the specific needs of the plants. Based on sun exposure, wind, temperature, humidity, CloudRain’s smart algorithm automatically finds the perfect treat for plants.
  • Planty Gardening, which is an application to instruct users from seed to harvest by Makkelijke Moestuin 
  • Smart Plant Monitoring System by Robocraze: by leveraging advanced technology, such as sensors and IoT connectivity, this system enables users to monitor and care for their plants with precision.
  • Plant Identification Solutions:
    • Pl@ntNet: Pl@ntNet is a citizen science project available as an app that helps you identify plants thanks to your pictures.
    • PictureThis offers a powerful plant identifier to identify flowers, leaves, trees, herbs, and more in seconds! The user will also develop their green thumb, get personalized gardening tips, and become a gardening expert!

The Home Garden Tech DAO (HGTD)

Our approach to build the DAO is to partner with the Dev Teams experienced in R&D this solution, as well as the Service Partners experienced in doing the home gardens services:

Phase 1: Develop a home garden technology solution

Phase 2: Commercialize the solution. with DAO members in each country can, and team up to manufacture and sell products locally, implement services, as well as build a global home garden network.

Phase 3: Create community movement with HGTD Gamification, such as:

  • Reward DAO members with LP tokens for contributions to building the home garden network.
  • Reward Garden Magicians with DAO LP tokens for their active sharing value insights and their stories with the community.

Phase 4: Speed up to expandincrease the home garden network via community

Partnership invitations

To Dev Teams

If you are experienced in R&D technology solutions for home gardens or similar solutions, and interested in collaborating with HGTD as Dev Team Partner to develop the solution, please submit your proposal by the timeline here to demonstrate how you should be selected to develop this solution. 

The proposal should show:

  • Team profiles and relevant experiences 
  • Development plan until the solution is ready for commercialization. Development progress will be managed monthly as per Kambria DAO model
  • Demonstration works - initial designs, functional flows, demo, prototype… 
  • Quotation

From our fundraising experiences, we updated our qualification criteria to align with expectations of potential investors, including:

  • The teams already have prototypes to prove technical feasibility of your solutionrobotics concept 
  • Your development plan is within 6 months to MVP, then the DAO community will join hands to bring it to market 
  • Your quotation (1st product cycle) is up to $150.000, including prototype development work .

Please note that this partnership has the potential for long-term collaboration spanning multiple product cycles, contingent upon the success of each cycle.

To Home Garden Service Partners

If you are experienced in doing smart home garden services, and interested in collaborating with HGTD as Home Garden Service Partners, we would love to have your participation in the solution development phase, to survey your needs for the solution as well as collaborate to test the solution in the pilot phase.

Then in the commercialization phase, we can collaborate to implement the Home Garden Technology solutions.
