faRmagusta: BE friends with your farmer is a digital tool for ordering weekly fresh, seasonal, cheap and wherever possible organic produce from Famagusta farmers.
faRmagusta will provide two services to its users:
The first service is the basket delivery of produce, which will allow households and businesses to order fresh, local, organic, seasonal produce and fruits. The baskets will be ordered, paid for online and door-delivered. Variations of produce will include category or combinations of categories: fresh fruits and vegetables, honey, yogurt and cheese, organic eggs and homemade low glycemic-index bread. For every basket sold, one herb, vegetable plant, or fruit tree will be donated to a regional community garden with access to the less-privileged. In addition, each weekly basket will contain a faRmagusta newsletter with news from farmers and their products as well as functional recipes for seasonal produce. A composting scheme will also be available by providing households with empty organic waste bins that will be collected each week. Their content will be used as a primer for organic farming in community gardens.
The second service is a virtual farm map of Famagusta with will track local farms online and provide product(s) advertisement and text, photographic, and videographic materials about each of them.
The estimated impact of our project is multi-faceted. It will help the local community and the local producers develop economically, while reducing waste and the environmental footprint of agriculture, food production and delivery. It will also help promote the farmer profession, in particular organic farming, in the Famagusta region and nurture a sense of community through initiatives like the community garden for the less-privileged. In addition, by promoting healthy eating habits, faRmagusta will contribute to the overall well-being and health of the population in the region.
