Farmville reinvented: Internet gardens bring real fruits

Imagine having your own garden, where you can grow fruit and veg without picking up a spade, or even leaving your desk. This is the reality for Muscovites, who can bear real fruits from their Internet gardens.

A snappy Russian entrepreneur has introduced a new unique version of the famous social network game Farmville which has proven extremely popular among tens of thousands of users all over the world.At his farm the creative businessman offers users the opportunity to engage in real farm process without actually being present.After a client buys a plot he can remotely look after his crops choosing what to plant and how to take care of it.The job will be done by trained gardeners and the virtual farmer will be able to oversee the entire process through web cameras. In addition to the pleasures of the online gardening, every client will have the harvest from their plot delivered to their doorstep.Danila Shaposhnikov says that his project is not just about playing for fun, but about delivering people healthier – organic – food.“We want city dwellers to have a connection with the countryside. In the future we want every city dweller to have their own garden,” he said.For more on the story watch Igor Ogorodnev`s report.
