The idea: Green enthusiasts take note — these Windowfarm kits will let you use window space in your house as a hydroponic farm. Regardless of the weather, temperature, or time of year, you’ll be able to grow food inside.Whose idea: Britta Riley

Why it’s brilliant: Concerned foodies know exactly how their food was grown and city inhabitants can grow some of their own food year-round. The educational aspect of Windowfarms means that many schools will be interested in buying kits as well.
