All-in-One Kitchen Herb Garden and Cutting Board

View all 6 Photos

Called the Grow Pot, this planter system is composed of a terracotta pot and a short plank of wood. The designer, the Oslo-based Hallgeir Homstvedt, originally created the Grow Pot for the Woodwork exhibition in Tokyo, and, to this day, he uses the prototypes in his apartment. Now, the green design is also produced by the Danish manufacturer Menu and will soon be available from Gessato’s shop.
Fit for even the smallest of spaces, the Grow Pot fits on a shelf or in a window sill. The design is a great starter for or addition to one’s kitchen herb garden, as it lets one grow and prepare edible plants in the same place. Minimalist in black, the round pot is crafted from earthenware and a non-slip silicone base. The accompanying wooden stand is made of naturally finished solid oak, so that it is food-safe and doubles as a cutting board. Together, the pieces allow anyone to sharpen both their gardening and healthy cooking skills.
