“Le verdure del mio orto” takes the principle behind the social network game Farmville but makes it a reality. Users simply need to create and manage virtual gardens online, while the actual vegetables are being grown in a traditional way and on ecological farming land. The vegetables, chosen by each user depending on their preferences and seasonality, are then delivered to the user’s home address when harvested.
