Each garden has a wall where the members that collaborate can comment and add photos. The members can manage their crops and tasks, there are predefined tasks and they can visualize the other people tasks, so they can coordinate easily. In the future the app can also integrate sensors, in order to get the garden smart, this way some tasks can be auto generated and the members can see the state in real time.
