Home gardening has grown in recent years due to various factors such as climate change, economic instability, supply chain disruption, and the COVID-19 pandemic. All of these contribute to food insecurity by making access to groceries like produce more difficult and expensive. Because of this, there is a large interest in food cultivation at home to cut costs, save energy, and foster self-sufficiency by users.

New gardeners, interested in growing edible plants at home, struggle with keeping track of all the different plant-care requirements in between their other personal obligations. Budee™ is a garden manager app that reminds users when to water, feed, weed, and more so they can focus on work, their relationships, and other hobbies without having to constantly worry about whether their plants are okay.
