I knew that Greentown Labs in Somerville had some interesting startups. For instance, there’s Rise Robotics (formerly Urban Hero), a company that’s invented a spring that can seemingly give people jumping super-powers. And there’s also Sol Power, maker of outdoor solar charging stations for cell phones, and Refresh Water, which makes a vending machine that lets you refill your water bottle for cheap.
But I hadn’t heard yet about Grove Labs. And so I certainly didn’t expect that my tour of Greentown would include a sampling of hydroponically grown tatsoi.
