SeeClickGrow

SeeClickGrow is an idea that riffs off of SeeClickFix. Let's look at the opportunity for those of us advancing local/muni food systems:

Citizens can assist with identifying potential Urban Ag locations by using SeeClickGrow. Data collected can be used by Urban Ag "animators" in your municipality to connect the space to a list of potential Urban Agriculturalists or those seeking space for enhanced local/muni food system development.

 An Urban Ag matchmaking service



Some exist, like LandShareCanada, but really need to grow to the next level of interactivity and user friendliness, ie an app. 

SeeClickFix encourages residents to become active citizens in taking care of and improving their city by reporting non-emergency issue in their neighborhood.
