Mapko.cz is a project that has created a way for people to communicate with their local farm or community garden and offer them domestic bio-waste which can be used for planting.
People can exchange gardening expertise, garden surpluses, or earthworms needed for composting processes. “Access to local food is not easy for a typical city dweller. But tools such as our map allow people to do so,” says Jakub Reichl, the Vodafone Foundation Grant of the Year Winner, which in cooperation with the Kokoza organization, is developing the community map.
For the future, mapko.cz will show other places created by natural supply and demand. For the needs of the city gardener there is also an e-shop, where you can get equipment from composters and fertilization tools to insect hotels and raised beds for growing.
