Shelagh commented on Community Gardens

Hi Jackson,

An inspiration you might draw on is the greenschool in Bali http://www.openideo.com/open/connected/inspiration/the-greenschool-where-students-build-their-own-playground-and-grow-their-own-food./

Here kids build their own gardens to produce some of the food which they are served for lunch. Perhaps a way to get a garden started and funded is to bridge these community gardens with the school curriculum or kindergartens.

Shelagh commented on SingFarm

I loved playing SimFarm as a kid, and I think the aspect your concept points out very well by connecting it to a game is that crops are something that ripen at a specific time. One would want to trade it or sell it while it is still fresh, and the game would be a great way to notify people that your tomatoes are ready to be harvested in 1 day. It would be great to encourage people to also cook with these fresh and local ingredients and maybe the game SingFarm could suggest where one could get all the local ingredients to make a certain dish. Thinking forward one might also consider about how a communal kitchen / garden could be included in new HDB developments.

Shelagh commented on Before&After - social change platform

This idea really stands out to me because it is so simple and easy to understand. Posting before pictures is a great way to connect people who are interested in tackling the challenge together. It brings people together with a purpose. To add on to the idea one could also have monthly make-a-thon events where teams can "compete" in creating before&after creations.
