Our Story

Aeroasis is a Santa Cruz and New York based IoT startup revolutionizing the way people grow food and medicine for personal consumption. Founded in early 2015 by Thomas Wollenberger, the Aeroasis mission from day 1 has been to empower people to grow in new ways at home, work, school, and beyond! With advanced in-house R&D capabilities, Aeroasis has been at the forefront of the hydroponic smart garden movement for over 3 years, and continues to design new and exciting ways to grow indoors!

Aeroasis is a registered Public Benefit Corporation, and is committed to reaching community impact goals yearly. Learn more below!



Aeroasis puts education at the heart of every product, initiative, and campaign we will ever launch. With so many pressing global issues surrounding sustainable food production, we want to make it as easy as possible for anyone to learn more about the benefits of Controlled Environment Agriculture and the food systems that affect us every day.
