|<H2> FarmBot vs the Grocery Store
FarmBot grown veggies are significantly less expensive than those purchased at the grocery store. The return on investment period is estimated to be between six months and two years depending on what you grow.

Compared to standard US veggies, those grown by FarmBot create 25% fewer CO2 emissions. Take FarmBot off-grid and the environmental benefits get even better.

|<H2> What you need to provide
All FarmBots must be mounted to a raised bed or similar infrastructure. Neither materials for the bed nor soil are included with the kits because every installation will be different, and shipping lumber and soil would be prohibitively expensive.
FarmBot must be plugged into a 110 or 220V outlet. The 30cm (1ft) power cord comes with a standard US 3-prong plug. You must connect this to your own extension cord if needed. Customers outside the US: you must provide a plug adapter if needed.
FarmBot's water system has a 3/4″ female Garden Hose Thread (GHT) connection, meaning you can take a standard US garden hose and screw it into your FarmBot. You will need to provide a hose of the appropriate length.
FarmBot can only be controlled using the web app, so an internet connection is required. The Raspberry Pi has built-in WiFi, though you may need to reposition your WiFi router or install a repeater to ensure a reliable connection.
