THE STORY BEHIND MYEZPONICS
Families that live in the hills of San Juan Del Rio, Oaxaca struggle to grow crops due to rocky barren soil. This makes it very difficult to live off of what the land can provide. The only way for these families to get fresh fruits and vegetables is to drive two hours into the main city of Oaxaca.
Having conversed with friends and family about the hardships of what their families encountered on a day to day basis, Joe Bloomfield, inventor of the VegiTower, came up with a solution. Bloomfield designed a hydroponics gardening system that would be cost effective, affordable, and easy to maintain.
On a budget, he built a wooden trellis with 10 large PVC pipes that could grow up to 140 various plants. Through the PVC pipes flows running water that is supported by a water pump. After completing the gardening system, Bloomfield planted his first crops of lettuce, basil, tomatoes, strawberries, and peppers. To his and everyone’s amazement, within just a month or two his crops flourished.
Helping others has been an ongoing passion, and Bloomfield later developed a smaller system known as the VegiTower. This new and improved model was now smaller and convenient for anyone, and could grow up to 18 plants. Having seen these two gardening systems, Erik Arevalo, the owner of a strength and conditioning facility, was curious as to where he could purchase the same systems. After finding out that Bloomfield had built them as a personal project, Arevalo suggested turning his hobby into a business.
Together they created the company known as MyEZPonics, which was inspired by Arevalo’s passion to help people eat healthy and Bloomfield’s idea of helping one community at a time. MyEZPonics is committed to leaving the world a better place by utilizing the available resources and contributing to communities like San Juan Del Rio. Together, we can make a difference.
