[Approved] 'Andrea grows' - an interactive, informative web comic about Agriculture on the NEAR blockchain

’Andrea grows’ is an interactive web comic.

The main character, Andrea, is a young farmer from generations of farmers who likes her life but dreams to become more independent.
Andrea will face a number of challenges derived from intensive agricultural practices, land neglect, disconnection from the economic cycle, climate change. Some helpers will guide her to a clearer vision of her future as a farmer and human being.

Ideation and first Grant application

The idea for this project is to build an engaging portal for farmers and general public, guiding them into further research about Regenerative Agriculture, Permaculture and holistic methods to grow and farm.

Thanks to the funds Createbase granted, the first page of the comic is being completed, alongside the first object associated with the comic strip, a turnip, and the related seed pack.

These physical objects will be associated with each comic strip through a QR code that’ll direct to the definitive version, minted on mintbase: the pencils for the first comic strip can already be found here.

This is so fun and has a beautiful message! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

So let me see if I got it right:
You will sell the NFT for the comic in black and white? And then you’ll be sending the colourful version to that wallet and you will be sending the glass turnip and the seeds to the physical address of the person who bought it?

It is looking really beautiful :slight_smile: hope to learn more about this!
Grazie Mille,
Maria

Thank you very much, I’m glad you like the project!

Yes, you got it right, Maria: the web comic is subdivided in five sections featuring three comic strips each.

Createbase is allowing us to complete the first comic strip, ‘Climate change’ and to produce the physical objects associated with it.

We are now working at phase 2 and preparing phases 3 and 4, as per the original funding scheme:

The black and white version of the first comic strip has been minted already, but will be up for auctions (6 of its 8 editions) as soon as we’ve got everything ready, i.e. after phase 4 is completed.

The owners will receive the completed comic strip’s NFT and several physical objects such as seeds and high quality printed goods (Andrea grows’ Stickers set and ‘Andrea grows - Sketchbook’).

One randomly selected collector will also receive the featured physical artwork for this strip which is a turnip glass sculpture made by artist Elisa Sberna.

These days we are selecting the best turnip varieties so we can verify the germinability of their seeds, here’s a photo of heirloom yellow turnip sprouts from this morning:

Please note: due to international laws about seeds, some owners may not be eligible for receiving the seeds.

I hope I’ve answered your questions and thank you again for your interest.
