OpenFarm: Learn to Grow Anything by Rory Landon Aronson — Kickstarter
"The Problem

When searching for plant growing advice, it is common to run into the following situations:

• Advice is overly generic
• Advice is not structured, written, nor formatted well
• Advice is very specific, but not relevant to you or your garden
• There is no way to discuss or contribute new advice

The OpenFarm Solution

OpenFarm is a free and open database for farming and gardening knowledge. Similar to Wikipedia, the data is free for everyone to access and anyone can contribute content. Because people grow plants differently based on environmental conditions and growing practices, OpenFarm provides a framework for everyone to share their story, and for learners to find the best, most relevant content.

OpenFarm Growing Guides are structured stories for growing a specific plant with particular practices and environmental conditions. Below, is a mockup example of Nancy's Guide for growing Heirloom Tomatoes with organic practices, in a greenhouse. Below the image are descriptions for each of the sections of the guide."
