Vending machines do come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, not to mention the different kinds of items that can be purchased within such as fresh milk and bananas. Well, this particular vending machine that we are talking about this time around would be very different from what you’re used to, as Seeds of Change, an organic seed and food company, intends to have more folks grow a garden this year. How will they go about trying to achieve this ambition? Why, they would need to put seeds in the hands of the public in the first place, and what better way to do that than to enlist the help of a Twitter-enabled vending machine which should appeal to the technologically savvy?
Basically, seeds will be dispensed to those who send out a tweet that shares on how one will work towards growing a healthier community, as well as make a pledge to plant (#PledgeToPlant). For those who are interested to know where this Twitter-enabled vending machine will be, you might want to keep the following dates free – March 7, 8 (Union Square Greenmarket in New York), 14, 15 (Chicago), 16 and 23 (Hollywood Farmer’s Market, Los Angeles). What do you think of this particular idea, will it appeal to the masses?
