Case in point that community science has so much more dimensions than we’re used to: we now have our ‘garden dagger’ microclimate sensor turned into chocolate! A tasty treat to all participants of the citizen science project who join us for the second season of monitoring.
Are we playing it dirty to pump up the love for science? Maybe! Will the participants be extra enthusiastic to take good care of their sensor over the coming summer? Definitely!
But this fits in perfectly with our philosophy that science needs to be close to the community, especially when the scientific topic of interest is so close to the community itself, as here: private gardens.
In any case, stay tuned for how our new measurement season enfolds!
