“The planning tool helps us to make the cultivation planning more transparent for all co-workers, in the sense of a knowledge transfer.
We have been running a market garden with direct marketing (subscriptions, webshop, weekly market, stores and gastronomy) for 7 years on a versatile organic farm near Bern with 0.6ha of fresh vegetables and 3-4 co-workers, including 1 person in vocational training.
Special challenges: Sunny south-facing slope with ideal conditions autumn to spring. In summer very hot because of solar radiation and high water demand, which we can not cover from our own sources.
Number of crops: over 50 different, all around the year”.
