Wow! Congrats on that piece count! And thanks for lessons learned re: process, supply chains, good tools and simplicity targeting just what's necessary. It seems for everyone "supply chain" can be a big chink in a smooth process....

Hi Miranda Jones  Thank you for sharing your idea. I agree with you the impact of COVID19 on the food supply is yet a big unknown going forward, and small scale farmers can be a big part if the solution given the right tools and support. You might want to look at another idea posted from a group doing work in Africa and South America by @Talia Lostaunan Digital Cooperatives to Support Rural Farming Communities Post Covid19 . They're building an app with a slightly different focus. Also, you might want to check out this group working in the US: Best, Susan

Hi Grace Wickerson  Thank you for posting your idea. It seems so much discussion on education right now centers on in-home teaching for the much younger students. While that segment is critical right now, you bring up a very good point on COVID19 impacting older students' also at a critical time in their development. With all upper level students experiencing this problem, do you think your program could be designed for replication, or even in cooperation with, other universities? With local, regional or national collaborations and partnerships more students might be benefited more quickly? On the project-generation side, including already established business labor and market resources as partners could match the student scaling effect (I.e. professional associations...for advertisers, project managers, manufacturers, translators, etc). You might not want to take on a wider dissemination, but do you think your project could also be designed for adaptation in other regions?
