I like this concept. People love to see progress with their own eyes. Slow results are less grabbing and easier to give up on, while being a part of the growing food creates a connection to the life of the food itself. If people can't be on the farm, they can still see what's going on on the farm. If they could somehow see the actual tomato grow that they were about to eat, that would be fantastic, though probably a little too unrealistic. But this takes us closer to the food we're about to eat and it has an element of fun.
