On November 16th and 17th , the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and the UC Davis Sustainable Ag Tech Innovation Center are sponsoring the first-ever West Coast Farm Hack in Davis, CA! 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 Hack started as a project of the National Young Farmers Coalition in 2010, but in early 2013 it evolved into its own non-profit to manage the on-line design forums, and provide support to the many farmers, and eventually organizations, who wanted to host events to bring people together. At its core are values of documentation and innovation, open publication and building on the work of those who came before. The web platform uses an open source coding and is Wiki based, so that anyone can add to it
Event Dates: November 16-17 2013 (17th is optional)
Time: 9:00 am – 6:30 pm Day 1; 9:30am – open Day 2
