Have a happy farming time and cook with friends,
by the growth time of plant.When the vegetable is ripe,
it time to cook together and have a good time.
and you will never know who is the next.

In the city , people always busy.
so many people have no time to meet friends or just meet a while.
then I think if people start to plant some vegetables and fruits,
use the growth condition of plant, when your friend’s plants are ripe,
it mean time to cook together and have a good time.

In the era that people emphasize on health, environmental consciousness. for the public the LOHAS are well known to most of us.
City LOHAS as a target groups for this desing, To urban people, the planting area is not broad and compare with the countryside, it is not easy to care for plants.
Harvest Matching is a design integrated planting care with share system, through the existing technology about sensor and surveillance.
Help urban farmers to understand the growth condition about plant, and by monitoring technology to record plant growth,
when fruits and vegetables is ripe, it will connect with friends. Share with nearby users or paired with dishes who have suit vegetable.

Share Stick has a sensor, which will record the growth of plants.
When the plant is ripe, it will give a reminder to you, and start to search your friends, who also have ripe fruits and vegetables. Once the friends are found, the appliance will send an invitation to friends who can cook together.

On the other hand, you can make new friends through Share Stick and share fruits and vegetables or exchange them. There will be no food waste and more food can be enjoyed together, when fruits and vegetables are ripe and it is a good time for dinner.

Expert feedback, stage 1

Micro farming in urban areas is a rising trend so this is an interesting approach to social cooking – could the concept be developed by looking deeper to the possibilities of this idea, and the consumer insights behind it?
