Well... about me actually - I'm Alex - I developed this
website. I'm a full-time PhD student at the University of Waikato. I'm also a
part-time programmer/web developer.
Why this website?.. My mom and dad love veggie gardening and last summer they had a large surplus of
cucumbers - they didn't know what to do with them! They gave heaps to their
friends and family, but still, there were just too many of them! They tried to
sell via the honesty box, but because their house wasn't on the main road, most
of the cucumbers just went bad.
That's when I had the idea of developing this website. I love eating fresh fruit
and vegetables and I hope that this website will make it easier for me (and
others) to find local growers and buy from them directly. Fresh stuff really
does taste very different.
It was great fun developing this website (took a while though) - I've launched it
in September 2011 and so far have
with a combined total of
adverts. Please spread the word around - like us on Facebook (main page) and tell
Thanks for looking,
