I originally thought of FarmPorter for a summer grant, and then a summer project, but now that my summer is planned, I’m giving the idea up to whoever wants it.
There are a few aspects of the idea, and FarmPorter would probably be better if simplified to perform one of the following:
- Home delivery of CSA shares
- Fractional CSA share purchasing
- Subsidized CSA shares to low-income communities
- Handling excess crops through online sales/food bank donation
- Marketing CSAs beyond farmers markets
