Joel Derksen is a recent graduate from OCAD University in Toronto and he submitted this amazing project.

"This project explored the differences between urban farming and container gardening. I found one of the major differences between the two is the social element that urban farming has. The kit integrates the typical seed packets with social media, connecting with community, and delicious recipes to encourage a more social growing experience.

The product is named 8 -- for infinity, "8 fruits and vegetables", and the past-tense of the verb "to eat". (8, drink, and be merry.)"
