MyFarm: Online Farming Through Crowdsourcing
An ambitious new project challenges internet users around the world to run a real farm to help them appreciate how their food is produced.
If you thought that playing FarmVille and Harvest Moon were the closest you could get to real farming, consider an interesting idea from farming enthusiast Richard Morris: Why not invite internet users to run a real farm?
