Grow the Planet – Real World Farmville

Farmville is the most played game in the internet, stirring people’s interest towards farming ideas.  So many people would love to be able to grow their own garden, but don’t know where to start.  Grow the Planet, a social network for hobby farmers is thinking of creating the Farmville in the real world.

Grow the planet is a new service that lets you learn how to easily grow your own vegetables, share them with your friends and community, and help build a greener, more sustainable economy.  It combines popular and scientific wisdom to give you the best and easiest web based and mobile instruments to keep track of your garden, notify you of news, and changing weather situations and guide you through each and every step of the growing process.

It aims to help shorten the learning process for new gardeners and allow them to connect with other gardeners within their area for advice and vegetable swaps.

On the website they can find information on plants and vegetables, growing skills and techniques, hints and tips for the needed activities. They can share opinions and connect to help each other out and, if they wish, exchange their produce.  The most powerful feature is the possibility for each user to design their vegetable garden, balcony or shelves, and receive hints according to their specific situation.

It will be interesting how Grow the Planet will help in building a more sustainable, greener economy.
