Hierbabuena is a team project in which our aim was to provide an efficient and sustainable way for people to get closer to gardening and self-cultivation. It lets the user grow their own herbs at home, with both a practical and educational purpose.
The product consists of a selection of five herbs (mint, rosemary, thyme, parsley and coriander), five of the most widely used in Mediterranean cooking.
The modular system lets the user replace certain herbs and change the distribution. Each herb comes in an individual echo-friendly pack that includes a reusable glass container, an envelope with seeds, a tablet of compressed coconut fiber for substrate and instructions for each plant on the side of the recipient.
