, the grow your own/share your own gardening swap site, launched earlier this month for gardeners to swap their surplus, home grown fruit and veg with people near them. The free site was conceived, built and then promoted by Lourish's founder Dave Bower for a little over ?1000 after he quit his job to do something "less corporate".
In his presentation Dave will describe the ideas behind Lourish, the challenges of single-handedly building a site with almost no money, the use of social media for free online promotion and will look at the future of lourish.com.About Dave Bower
Dave is a software developer and consultant specialising in the development of very large websites and online mobile applications. He's also a keen amateur gardener and has a lot of chillis at the moment, so if you want to swap, head over to http://louri.sh/ex/1
