Win the "screen vs nature" battle...with an app

Win the "screen vs nature" battle...with an app | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it


The app, compatible with iOS devices, is free. And rather than being a typical game that takes your child’s mind captive in a virtual world, this is an “augmented reality” app — in other words it encourages kids to connect with their real world surroundings. It’s geared toward fairly young kids, but is clever in its use of the device’s built-in camera to connect real and virtual elements which ultimately drive kids imaginations toward the planet around them.

iOS apps for better gardening

iOS apps for better gardening | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Here in the northern hemisphere, it’s springtime, which for us means that it’s time to weed the back yard and plant the garden. If you’ve been sowing seeds and staking tomatoes for years, you probably know what to do, but many of us would like some guidance about what to plant, when to plant it, where to plant it, and when to expect a harvest.

Apps on a gardener's wish list

Apps on a gardener's wish list | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

I’ll be the first to admit that there’s nothing organic or sustainable about apps for your mobile device. At first glance it may seem a little off-center that a website about living sustainably is featuring a Wish List of Android and iPhone apps, but please, hold the phone! Our take on sustainable living is a wee bit different than you might expect. In this recent post about the topic of sustainable living I mentioned that “the beauty of sustainable living is that we can (responsibly) enjoy the comforts of modern resources without worry for what we’ll do if or when they’re gone. Living sustainably does not mean utterly forsaking modern resources, but it does mean that we have a plan for living well should we need to live without them.”

Open Source Seed Initiative: "Free the Seed!"

Open Source Seed Initiative: "Free the Seed!" | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

From The Daily Page: Farmers have traditionally gathered and saved seeds from one growing season to plant in the next. But this age-old tradition is being threatened by corporations that are increasingly restricting access to seeds through patents.

A new group with ties to the University of Wisconsin-Madison is trying to counter this trend by ensuring that certain seed lines are never patented and remain accessible to individuals who want to plant or use them to produce new varieties. Following the lead of supporters of open-source software, the Open Source Seed Initiative hopes to promote an ethic of sharing among plant breeders.

Mary Anne Lynch @leafport.com's insight:

The OSSI web site is easily viewable on any mobile web browser.

Rain with a brain: Get ready for "smart" sprinklers

Rain with a brain: Get ready for "smart" sprinklers | Garden apps for mobile devices | Scoop.it

Your normal garden sprinklers are like a band of soldiers fresh out of basic training: they’re good at taking orders and shooting where you tell them to, but they tend to waste a lot of ammo. We’re talking millions of gallons per year globally, just because they have bad aim.


Running with this soldier analogy, Droplet –the latest entry into the growing category of smart sprinklers– would be more like a Navy Seal sniper. Droplet works by selectively watering plants in your garden with precise streams of water, rather than spraying wildly and praying for a hit.
