Grow and tell is an exciting platform for gardeners to share what grows where, which crops turned out well, and which didn’t grow as planned. You can view what plants are growing around you, which plants grew in what zone, and what type of land is perfect for certain types of plants. It’s a complete citizen scientist’s project where both professional and hobbyist gardeners near you are sending in input. You can even download your own personal gardening journal which holds complete records of gardening stats near you, which can help you make the best decision.
The creators of the platforms hope that more and more people will join up and rate crops making the app useful for existing users. The app is available for free and can be downloaded for both iOS from the App Store and android from Google’s Play store. The app was fully funded by “eXtension Foundation” to promote innovation in the Cooperative Extension Service. To keep the app free, Extension will seek sponsorships to pay for updates, fixes and regular maintenance. Additionally, event advertising can also be purchased and targeted to app users locally, by state or nationally.
