Micro trading platform for locally grown food
22 Mar 2011
Location: Brisbane, Queensland
To develop a micro trading platform for locally grown food which will be an adjunct to the very large organic gardening knowledge base our business provides food gardeners at present at www.cityfoodgrowers.com.
This trading platform could be used down to suburb or town level in any country which is a strong user of the web and branded to a platform operator who will connect with and organise local small scale growers. This will create physical community connections, incentives for people to grow more food and use the land they have in and around cities and make a big contribution to healing our soil and creating a sustainable food system with diversity.
I am already seeking grant funding for this platform, but would like some options on funding and connections with people to build focus groups to create the ideal solution
