We thought we wanted to tell you a bit more about our values, and what’s important to us. Are you interested to know why this application is made? When we started Groww, we designed these six design principles – and 4 years later, they still command anything we do or any change we make to the app. Here they are :
Less is more
Groww puts garden advice – the right information, simple and concise – at your fingertips, right when you need it.
Grow my garden, grow myself up
Growing your garden is also growing yourself up – learning new things!
Gardening is a journey
Gardening is a school of patience : you learn from the past – and your mistakes – to prepare the future. It’s also a story you write, everyday.
Gardening is not something you do in your own – gardening is sharing, exchanging ideas. Expect social features to be added to the app soon!
We’re outdoor folks
Let’s be clear – gardening is not something you do in front of your computer – you have to put your hands in the dirt. Groww is in your phone – ready to help, but the more the phone stays in the front pocket of your gardening apron, the better.
We do not want pesticides, herbicides, or any other ‘-cides’ (from latin -cida, to kill) in Groww. We don’t put any in our gardens, and there is no reason to do otherwise in this app! And beyond: in the garden we should use local ressources – mulch from our clippings instead of cacao beans from the other side of the world , and try reuse and recycle everything that can be used again. This planet is our garden!
That’s it, it was short but good! Happy gardening …
