    Hi all!

    I am part of the WinterRoot collaborative, and we are kickstarting a project that I think you'll be interested in!

    With this project, called Wildflowers of Detroit we hope to turn peoples attention away from the decaying buildings of Detroit and toward the plants steadily establishing themselves. The project itself consists of iphone, android, and all cellphone applications people will use to upload photos they've taken of wild plants in Detroit's open spaces. These images are then uploaded to an interactive map! We already have a first-draft of this project online, which you can see by following the link at the end of this message.
    If you do not live in Detroit, don't shy away; the software we are making here is going to be open source so it can be re-purposed by anyone with computer skills. We also have a reward tier for backers that will bring Wildflowers of Detroit to your city!

    So please check out the link below and consider becoming a backer!

    Gwen

    Things have been going great, but we're down to less than 24 hours now with just $444 to go to reach our funding goal. If you're out there and like this concept, throw in a few bucks to inch it close! Thanks to UBC for listing our project in the flower of the day a few days ago!!
