Smarden: The Smart Garden

The Smarden is short for smart garden. The idea behind the project is to create an autonomous garden that can monitor and water itself wirelessly. While recording data such as temperature, humidity, sunlight, and soil moisture. This is desirable because as the world population increases resources are only going to get more scarce, and who doesn't like water conservation.   

Status: Expected to be completed by May 2014
