When our group was coming up with an idea for our project, we all saw that we were all interested in the environment. We wanted to do something that would benefit people who are trying to grow a garden, but might be unable to consistently take care of it. As a result, we decide to build a self-watering planter that makes it much easier for frequent travelers or people who don’t have time to attend to their plants. As a result, we came up with the idea of creating a self-watering planter that could be used by frequent travelers to people who just don’t have the time to water their plants, but want to grow a garden. This project matters to us because we can build something that we’re interested in while helping other people!
