biocò is the community supported agricultural (CSA) project which was funded in October 2013 in the region of Baden-Brugg. biocò comes from the words biological, cooperation and cò: here, local in Romansh, one of the swiss national languages.
This CSA model consists of members and a farmer, coordinated by a team board with two co-presidents. The farmer guides with instructions to members regarding planting and other related activities. The members share among them the tasks to plant, harvest and deliver the vegetables through an intranet platform.
Watch below the two videos which I developed for the 1st and 2nd year of biocò’s activities.
