With the Urban Gardening Toolkit [UGT] people, who are active in the urban gardening scene, are able to monitor plants and gardening sites. The UGT should show in its final stage location and needs of planting sites (e.g. GPS coordinates, need for water, visualize free planting sites, visualize when to harvest plants, ...). In addition to that features the UGT can be easily extended with sensors to accomplish also other purposes (e.g. air qaulity measurement, weather data gathering, serve as public WiFi hotspot, ... The power supply for the sensor system is realized by a solar panel connected to a battery (at the moment I have to power it at night by 5V power plug, because the battery is to weak.
At the moment a testsetting with soil moisture sensors (to measure when plants need water), temperature and humidity sensor are sending data to Internet of things platforms (you can have a look at xively.com - its my live feed of the sensor data).
