My friends in LaunchAcademy are crowd funding their startup on Indiegogo. It is called My Green Space which is aiming to make it possible for us to grow food no matter where we are. They will be offering web and mobile apps to manage your own urban garden and the mobile app will notify you and keep you updated on how to take care of your greens. In fact their mission is to cover 100,000 acres of urban space one garden box at a time. Their goal is to raise $20,000 initial funds. So if you want to support an awesome Vancouver startup, here is a good one. You can also follow them on twitter @mygreenspacevan, Instagram @mygreenspacevan and their facebook page.
