Zukeeni is a web-based platform that builds yard-to-table backyard communities, inspiring people to nurture their “inner farmers” and take control of what they grow, eat and share.  The platform has tools to help gardeners plan, plant and maintain their edible gardens.  It also enables them to see growers around them and to collaborate.  SLoFIG originally invested in Smart Gardener, which was purchased by the team at Zukeeni.  We invested to help bring knowledge of organic fruit and vegetable gardening to a wider audience.
