We believe that human energy must be directed for the development of sustainable activities and environment preservations for the next generations, through concern about the importance of land, a healthy environment, and population health. In this sense we decided to do something about it and develop a digital platform that will help and promote the ground and natural resources keepers – organic farmer - and that also contributes to change the population's consumption habits simultaneously.

We believe that human energy must be directed for the development of sustainable activities and environment preservations for the next generations, through concern about the importance of land, a healthy environment, and population health.

In this sense we decided to do something about it and develop a digital platform that will help and promote the ground and natural resources keepers – organic farmer - and that also contributes to change the population's consumption habits simultaneously.

And this is how biOrgani is born!

The first exclusive digital platform for organic farmers. Each farmer will have his own “online store” and access to digital software that will speed and ease the production management process and the distribution channels.

BiOrgani allows you to find your ideal farmer and to acquire local organic products, promoting a change in consumption habits.

With biOrgani the organic farmers will see their work valued, and also will be able to define the price of their products, which will give them a fairer profit margin.

We’re testing the main process, but one of our main goals is to solve the distribution matter, in an easy, efficient and sustainable way.

We want to draw a sustainable based plan, with a focus on the following focal points:

  • Availability of delivery points closer to consumers;
  • Development of efficient well-drawn delivery routes and vehicles;
  • Waste reduction and use of environment-friendly and reusable materials;

As co-founder of this project, which goal goes along the same, bringing an improvement in people’s daily life and helping them create healthier consumption habits. Because at the end of the day we are what we eat and our daily choices can and make all the difference.

Graduated in Landscape Architecture, since early she believes that you can change the world through raising awareness people and becoming their consumption habits more conscient.

All this made him come with teaching gardens in basic schools and teaching gardeners in community gardens.
