Farm Hack Davis

Start:
11/16/13

End:
11/17/13

On November 16th and 17th, the first Farm Hack on the West Coast will happen in Davis, CA. It will be sponsored by the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and the UC Davis Sustainable Ag Tech Innovation Center. Farmers interested in collaborative design will come together with makers, builders, engineers, architects, fabricators, software designers and others to look at a handful of projects farmers are bringing to the table – literally. Farm projects at the event will be at various stages – from initial ideas on the back of a napkin to projects in the midst of being built. Together, participants will use the design process to understand, identify, and prototype. It will be a well-facilitated all day design charrette, punctuated by inspirational shop talk, home-made equipment demonstrations, good food and good beer. The range of tools that have come out of past events around the country include Fido, the greenhouse monitoring system, an electric tractor, a pedal powered root washer, a biodiesel processing trailer, and aerial imagery devices that can monitor plant health down to the cellular level. Who knows what we’ll come up with next? Registration is happening now.
