Introduction

Gardening is the world's most popular hobby. A hobby that not only provides spiritual renewal, stress relief and insight into the cycle of life, but one that gives back beneficial and sustainable by-products, namely, food, herbs, flowers, and even medicines

Majority ofpeople affirm loving gardening. If they live in a detached house with garden, they can even practice it quite easily.But more and more people live in big cities. By the year 2050, nearly 80% of the earth's population will reside in urban centers.The issue for these urban people will be to conciliate their love for gardening and the lack of place.

In the same time, health specialists recommandto eat at least 5 fruits or vegetables to ward off diseases,especially fresh fruits and vegetables.

Ecological concerns are growing and energy is consumed for transportation or the chemicals and refrigeration used to preserve fresh products .

The solution for these paradoxes is our product “The Babylon garden”
