Airgarden Awarded Australian Good Design Award - A Revolution in Food Production

Airgarden is thrilled to announce its recent accolade at the 2023 Australian Good Design Awards. The revolutionary Airgarden 2.0 has been recognised as a *Good Design Award Winner* in the Product Design category for its exceptional innovation and commitment to sustainability.

Airgarden 2.0, the brainchild of co-founders Prue and Tom Bauer, has taken home this esteemed award, marking a significant achievement for the company and reinforcing its position as a leader in sustainable gardening technology.

At the heart of Airgarden's success is the innovative aeroponics technology, which reimagines traditional gardening methods, making it more accessible, cost-effective, and eco-friendly. The jury commended the design team's dedication to challenging the notion that home gardening is complex and resource-intensive. They praised Airgarden for providing an adaptable and efficient solution that has captured the interest of home gardeners, commercial growers, and educators.

Prue Bauer, Co-founder and CEO of Airgarden, said, "This recognition is a testament to our commitment to sustainable living and innovative technology”. With a sharp eye for detail and a well-trained skill in designing quality products that possess function and form, Prue takes inspiration from her mother, a fantastic curator in her own right and inspiration in this design journey."

Tom Bauer, Co-founder of Airgarden, added, "We dedicate this award to our mother, our greatest inspiration, and never let us give up on things we started. This is ultimately for her."

The Airgarden 2.0's success at the Australian Good Design Awards marks the beginning of an exciting chapter for the company. With this prestigious "TICK OF APPROVAL," Airgarden is poised to scale up its commercial designs, enabling more businesses to embrace sustainability and self-sufficiency.

The Australian Good Design Awards are renowned for recognising excellence in design and innovation across various industries. The Airgarden 2.0 was evaluated by a panel of more than 70 Australian and international jurors representing a broad spectrum of design disciplines.

*Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia and Chair of the Australian Good Design Awards*, emphasized the significance of the award, stating, "To be recognised with an Australian Good Design Award tells the world this project not only represents design excellence, but it also surpasses the criteria for design innovation and design impact. The Good Design Award is an independent endorsement of professional design quality."

Airgarden is excited about the future and is determined to continue positively impacting sustainable living. The company's innovative approach to gardening has the potential to transform not only backyards but also the way we approach food production and consumption in homes, communities, within businesses and globally, in areas with challenging growing conditions due to both space restrictions and unfavourable environmental conditions.
