Help is the Greatest Gift: Ayoudo Social Garden
As you may realize, Vancouver is a unique city full of many unique local gifts. Sometimes the perfect local gift cannot be found at a market, a craft fair or a gift company. Sometimes the perfect gift is a helping hand.
Getting the right help from the right person is a timeless gift that will forever be classy and meaningful. At the Saul Good Gift Co., we are excited to help spread the word about Ayoudo Social Garden. This new innovative app has recently brought together two things that we love:
1) Connecting people with help
2) Farming and Garden
In Vancouver, we endure many dark soggy days and we value the few precious days of sunshine that we are blessed with. Backyard gardens and farms have become one of Vancouver’s favourite ways to create more natural beauty and celebrate brights days. Backyard gardens are also one of the best things you can do for the environment, your body, your soul and your pocketbook.
'Ayoudo's Social Garden' helps connect passionate city slickers with skilled gardeners and farmers.
Get gardening and get to know your neighbours.
The coolest quality of Ayoudo is that it connects you with help from people who are trusted by your local community. Although you might connect with someone you don't know directly...you don't have to worry about dealing with anyone who is notoriously untrustworthy.
In addition to helping people get help, Ayoudo is also facilitating interactive forums where gardeners can connect across the city and exchange knowledge. Users can either request or offer paid help, or use the app’s volunteer feature to arrange unpaid or recreational gardening sessions.
If you know someone who is new to gardening and wants help....or if you know a super skilled gardener who has an abundance of knowledge and skill...Help us spread the word! Giving and receiving help is an awesome gift!
