Co-Founders Nick & Sarah (+Roger)
We got our start by being really into eating (who’s not?). The fresh, homegrown herbs that we desired were not supported by our yard-less home and busy lifestyle.
Determined to find a solution, we turned to our windowsills and put pen to paper. By making our own hydroponic system that hadn’t yet existed in a seamless, beautiful and accessible way, we grew foolproof plants and even maintained our self-esteem (after a few tries).
We’re you. Modern Sprout was founded by two regular thumb-colored people inside our Chicago home. We create products that are painstakingly designed for painless plants, so you feel good.
At Modern Sprout, we see gardening as meditative and thoroughly rewarding, yet we understand it’s not without its headaches. Our mission is simple: uncomplicate indoor gardening. By using the logic of hydroponics redesigned into beautiful, space-savvy products, we help you overcome modern gardening challenges. Modern Sprout products are thoughtfully crafted to bring you the holistic qualities of plants, frustration-free.
You have a green home resolution. We have sustainable solutions.
Since its founding, Modern Sprout has been committed to domestic sourcing and manufacturing when possible, reducing plastic materials in its products and packaging, and building its products with sustainable materials. From donating a percentage of proceeds to the Pollinator Partnership for ecosystem protection, to partnering with the Heartland Alliance to provide employment for Chicago’s most vulnerable residents, Modern Sprout is dedicated to making our community and earth a better place.
