Looking for enthusiasts and experts to help Alpha Testing procedural generation gardening simulator

Years ago, I was developing my first project, an evolution simulator, and decided to look for initial testers among experts and enthusiasts - individuals with actual insight from subreddits like r/Aquariums, r/biology, r/Evolution and r/Botany. This steered the development in the right direction from the start and provided me with valuable feedback and suggestions before releasing it to the wider public. Almost a decade later, I am working on similar idea, but focused entirely on realistic gardening and very in-depth plant simulation - and this time, I am looking for anyone with experience and knowledge in the fields of plants, botany, and gardening to join the closed alpha testing. You can check the project so far after two years at https://store.steampowered.com/app/2052790 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOj17MNSjTI

Gardener utilizes my original algorithms, which have been developed (and 'battle-hardened') over years for the evolution simulation, to procedurally generate each and every plant. No two trees are identical, each plant is unique, and every leaf, flower, fruit, and twig is simulated separately with its own DNA, conditions, and state. I am simulating hydration (the ground can be saturated with water, temperature and grass length affect evaporation, etc.), sunlight access (shade affects growth), ground pH levels, and six base nutrients (N, P, K, Ca, Fe, Mg). There are pests, diseases, and fungi to prevent, alongside realistic visual/behavioral signs of these problems on plants. Plants can be pruned at every node, allowing you to collect, grow, and farm particularly interesting specimens, and perform all the actual botanical maintenance activities, from training to grafting. Gardens can also be designed with sustainability in mind, attracting local fauna that either assists in pollination or simply enjoys the habitat.

However, I am not a professional gardener. I have a small garden that I enjoy tending to, but while I have some understanding of population genetics, I am not an expert in gardening. If you have experience with plants, knowledge or suggestions you would like to share, or if you just want to play with the simulation and provide feedback, please let me know, I'll provide a Steam key for testing. Keep in mind that the game is in early development; it has many bugs and missing content, and everything is subject to change. But if you are interested in shaping it and don't mind unbalanced gameplay that might crash from time to time, please check it out or add it to your wishlist to wait for a more stable version. Everyone who participates will keep the title in their Steam library after the release, along with some other closed-alpha tester perks.

While I am primarily looking for suggestions related to mechanics, design, and balancing, the testing will also greatly help me to iron out bugs and crashes. But don't worry if you're not interested in reporting them, there's an automatic system that takes care of that, so every playthrough directly helps, even if it simply results in a crash. I also have a Discord server with a couple hundred users, where I'm happy to help and answer any questions 24/7.

^(*I've checked the rules of this subreddit, and I hope this post doesn't violate any. This is my solo indie project, and Reddit is the only way for me to reach out to people with this kind of interest and a PC capable of testing it. I don't have a marketing budget, and I prefer to spend my time developing Gardener rather than promoting it, so I'm just cross-posting across Reddit in the hopes of finding brave souls interested in testing it. Please don't regard this as spam — I don't plan to post about it here again. Thank you!)

Climate Pollution Reduction Grants

Hi, I'm a member of Climate Changemakers, and we are spreading the word on the Climate Pollution Reduction Grants the government has set up that will help state and local governments combat climate change by funding decarbonization initiatives, especially those that deliver an economic boost to, or otherwise support, low-income and disadvantaged communities. The types of projects that qualify for the grants span every economic sector, from transportation, to energy, to buildings, to industrial processes.
This is something state and local governments need to apply for in order to take advantage of them. So at Climate Changemakers we have been contacting our officials at the state and local level in order to make sure that happens. And we are also spreading the word to ask that all you all that read this please do so as well. We are all in this together, and we can get through this together.
If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for your time.

Regen Tribe

Regen Tribe is an organization seeking to accelerate the shift into Regenerative EcoCommunities.

They've already done a lot of great work, you can check them out here: https://regentribe.org/

If you like what they're doing, they're looking for all sorts of like-minded people to add their magick to the solution. They're also doing a round of fundraising on GitCoin, and every penny counts (even tiny donations help show community interest and get matched by the GitCoin grant program). There are also some other great orgs on this round of Climate Action funding.

African Marriage - Cultural Racism

So for the last two years my family has made it so hard for me to marry my current partner because he is from Ghana and i’m from Guinea. Yet we are both muslim…

It’s sad that these things can still happen. I constantly struggled with the idea of choosing between my happiness and the happiness of my family because I knew they wouldn’t support me. Not even those I felt closest to before my fathers passing.

As a muslim we are never supposed to discriminate and although it was the most stressful two years of my life.

I decided in the end to choose my happiness. Getting married inshallah this year❤️
