This an interactive prototype of a social network called "Garden Hoppers."
Garden Hoppers is a is a social networking space designed for people who want to share and exchange what is being grown in their own backyard gardens or homes. At the Garden Hoppers site, members can do several things:
. share and exchange both edible and non–edible goods (i.e. herbs, flowers, pottery)
. share knowledge about how to cultivate their plants
. share recipes and stories
. build networks and sub–networks
Garden Hoppers is meant to be a friendly web environment that has the potential to create closer–knit community networks in the real world. The idea of a "neighbor" can be redefined and strengthened.
