Growing what we eat by ourselves, with ourselves.
Mass production and mass consumption were the symbolic belief in the 20th century. Re-examining the excessive capitalism based on the consequences, we seek and affirm to create a world for people to provide one another with mutual respect and support.
Agriculture as an industry has been placing production burdens only on producers, and allowed consumers to convert the burden by purchasing the products.
We’re not here to blame anything. We simply think it’s about time we thought over the numerous issues resulting from the fact that we overly distanced ourselves from the farm producing from and at the time of the highest economical growth in the modern history.
Mass production, mass consumption, food loss, decline of food literacy, and anxiety for food environment prioritizing efficiency and rationality.
We consider these to be the complication due to our dissociation from agricultural environment.
PLANTIO will return to the fundamental principles and propose to relocating our life into the state of permaculture.
To the world where everyone grows vegetables.
Creating a culture that all people enjoy growing vegetables together.
The world is shifting to a true democratization. We are expecting to face the new world being liberated from the centralized system.
PLANTIO has developed a vegetable cultivation system that translates the democratization concept into a distributed/modular type off-grid farming system eventually allowing people to be the more proactive in farm producing.
Fun is also an important factor in the long lasting fulfillment of both sustainable agriculture and food environment.
PLANTIO will be creating an “agritainment culture” where people colorfully grows vegetables. These are achieved through our solid IoT and AI technologies.
A sharing type IoT community farm which is very well differentiated from an existing rental vegetable gardens. It is an unprecedented urban agriculture style that could be installed on the rooftops of offices, condominiums, commercial facilities and schools, and allying with nearby restaurants.
It’s quite a surprise if one of the apartment rooms were a farming space. An indoor IoT community farm that utilizes vacant rooms and vacant houses to enable stable cultivation regardless of the weather condition.
Dad, mom, son, daughter, grandparents far away, good friends in the neighborhood. An IoT planter enabling community cultivation in a cozy size. We will nurture communication by connecting every terrace with our IoT technology.
A community where you fully enjoy the urban agriculture. It’s a place you can have fun growing and cooking vegetables together, asking questions from time to time. You can share fun and the knowledge by creating communities in your comfortable sizes. AI will also be supporting you from the aspect of deep-learning to form a sustainable community design through organizing and strengthen the community.
“Crowd” = a farming system designed by the crowd.Learning process and device development will continue to advance according to the number of growers linked with various data such as a cultivation methods of participants, analysis performed on the cloud, location and outside temperature information, etc. Not only growth prediction but also harvest time prediction, yield prediction, and next sowing seed recommendation will enable the circulation-type of sustainable vegetable cultivation.
Soil is a precious resource. To avoid wasting such a valuable asset, we have developed the technology to containing microorganisms into capsules and embedding them in waste materials. We will achieve mindful sustainability where it is natural to recycle the soil.

Opened in June 2019, Sustina Park Ebisu Prime is an IoT community farm where office workers at Prime Square, chefs at restaurants and residents in the Ebisu neighborhood gather.
“Sastina Park Shibuya Shinsen” is an IoT community farm opened in October 2019 which is becoming popular among the residents of the Selon Building and its neighbors as a place of recreation and relaxation.
