It’s hardly the season to think about starting a garden, but I can’t help myself. I’ve got this great new home that I can’t help but envision as having a kick-ass garden when the weather gets warm again. Hopefully by then, today’s project will ready to help me plan and optimize my garden (it’s not always easy, especially when you’ve got limited space and a sordid history of botanical homocide following you around). Agrisaurus looks like a really cool app to get your planting plans in place before the soil even gets tilled. Maybe it’s not too early to start planning. Back this project before October 15.
Agrisaurus is a web application to make growing food in small spaces easier, more fun, and more successful. It began in 2010 as a side project we worked on at night after long days building and maintaining intensive food gardens for Farmscape, the largest urban farming venture in California. Agrisaurus will help novice and veteran gardeners alike learn how to get more yield out of a small plot, and it will help you manage your garden ongoing with reminders and advice.
