CAN (MB): Inventor comes up with homegrown solution for $5 lettuce

A Manitoba inventor has developed a homegrown solution to five-dollar lettuce.

Neil Evenson is the founder of Radical Growing Company, which produces self-contained, do-it-yourself, single-plant hydroponic kits.

Evenson is a design engineer by trade, but he loves to tinker in his spare time, and every now and again, those tinkerings turn into a viable product he’s able to commercialize.

“I’ve been starting businesses, with varying levels of success, since I was 16,” says Evenson, “though none are enough to let me retire.”

His latest venture started as a pandemic project in March 2020 and began as a hobby.

“I’ve kind of always had an interest in growing food, and this idea took hold during the pandemic in March of 2020, so the only option really was to do it indoors,” he says.
