With the increased popularity of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in agriculture, we focused our research about what ICTs could do for a rural Ecuadorian organization, Cultivando el Futuro (CeF). CeF is an initiative that distributes seedlings and hosts educational webinars for members to promote food sovereignty. Their current Facebook page is not an effective platform for distributing this information. Our goal was to evaluate CeF’s current platform and then propose a new platform to help more members develop their agricultural practices. Through Facebook Insights, surveys, and interviews, we were able to compare ICTs and decide that a website would be the best fit for CeF.
