Title Information sharing in an online community of urban gardeners.
Author(s) Coria, Erica
Date 2016
English abstract
This research investigates how a communication system could support urban gardeners in their activities. By looking at agriculture not as a mere activity for food production but as a rich social practice, this research addresses gardeners dual need of acquiring knowledge and develop social relationship. Findings from an ethnographic research of two local agriculture communities are described. Participatory design has been used to identify design opportunities and co-create concept ideas. Prototypes have been used to evaluate key aspects and refine the final concept. By inviting intended users to take an active role during the entire design process, the result of this research is grounded not only in the theory but also on people's aspirations and real experience.
