Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
We have a family of three members, parents and son. Mom download the app, after that, they choose the part of the house where they will begin to seed the orchard. The app suggests the tools and materials to begin, then they go to the supermarket to buy it. In house under the instructions of the app they will begin to seed. Two times in the day, Mom receives the alerts in her smartphone to water the plants, she phones to her son to remember to water the plant and tell about the hint of the day. After a weeks of group work, the first beans are ready for a delicious salad. Now the family are ready for begin to seed tomatoes.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
Our focus is help to build gardens or orchards as family projects, parents spending time with their kids, people planting and harvesting their food, this with the aid of their smartphones. Now, 7 people are using the app in the levels 1 to 3. Two of them have used their beans of the level 1 in a salad. We expect to generate an average of 5 square meters per family of urban gardens, and an average 5k users per city in Ecuador, generating 25k of square meter per city that will aid to absorb CO2. The process around growing of plants will create a conscience about care of the soil and the conservation of forest and plants from the adults until kids. The kids will grow up with the love of nature, knowing the care and effort needed to get products from the soil. Families will add organic products to their menu decreasing the spending in food and improving the way that they feed.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
A lot of people in the world really want a change in their style of life, this is our principal motivation to think that the app will have a long life. According with the number of users that will use the app, we will develop an "marketplace", for example if one family have become expert in the seeding of tomatoes, they could choose to interchange or sell to another family that become expert in another vegetable or fruit.
With this "Marketplace" we want to identify experts in create orchards, help them to join and identify area, where they could begin their own Plant nursery.
