My Capstone Project: GardenSeedr

GardenSeedr is an application that gives the average person the power to more effectively grow their own food. GardenSeedr is a Spring Boot driven application utilizing JavaScript, HTML, Spring Security, Bootstrap, OpenFarm API and OpenWeather API. This application provides vital information for new gardeners such as the sunlight, spacing, and spread requirements for the plants they want to grow, as well as a local weather forecast, and virtual representation of their physical gardens.
– users create an account in order to save their garden logs
– interactive graphing tool to layout your plants with full CRUD functionality
– track when plants are initially planted, their specific needs (sunlight, soil, water, etc.), expected time from sprout to harvest
– ability to find what crops to plant in their specific location for that season
– weather forecast for garden’s location

“With technology, I am most passionate about learning how to solve the puzzle.
