This was amazing!! Yes!!! Get out there and grow some delicious food! I started growing food two years ago and I love it so much. I'm more health conscious in my diet and in my life, and I love sharing with my friends and neighbors. Growing is such a fulfilling experience.

This is such an important message right now. Recently, here in New Orleans, Master P just announced that he is going to open a grocery store and is looking for local black farmers and distributors to work with. Small community gardens have popped up all over the city in recent years. It's such a positive change.

Omg thank you for the love and for sharing that! The way agriculture works in the US rn is so silly and we should really work to decentralize it and eat locally, that's so sick abt Master P <3

Amazing game with a critical message!!! Thank you for spreading the word of food injustice and turning more folks towards gardening!!!

Thanks for the game!

I liked how simple it is and straightforward with its message. It's like watching an informational video essay on YouTube, but interactive. We need more agitational games like this!

Also, Bitsy seems like a perfect fit for this purpose.

aww thanks so much! it’s the first game I’ve ever made, but I really like bitsy as an accessible platform for sharing important information. I hope to make more soon!!!

A fantastic game with some incredible resource links! Beautiful music and really nice work with your palettes and sprites! Didn't realize at first where to go from the second page, but figured it out after a bit. Love the feel of community throughout the writing. Thank you for making this :)
