You're Invited | Farm Hack: A Community For Farm Innovation

Farm Hack is calling all designers, farmers, engineers, makers, bike mechanics, tinkerers, and builders! Come together to develop new bike-powered tools and innovations to strengthen sustainable agriculture in the Twin Cities. While the RSVP has ended, the event is open and free to anyone; you may just need to bring your own lunch or plan to buy from the Bike Center Cafe!

Farm Hack is an open source design forum where people bring their ideas for small scale agriculture tools and innovations.

The theme for the Minneapolis Farm Hack is bike powered innovations. (think bike powered honey extractor, root washers, trailers, cultivators, seed grinders, water pumps etc.) It will be a day of working on pedal power solutions for urban agriculture, including demonstration, discussion of what we want to design and build for our agricultural needs, small group design charrettes, community building and bike tool skills.
A number of local partner organizations are planning a Farm Hack on Saturday, March 23, 2013 to be held at Freewheel Midtown Bike Center, 2834 10th Avenue S., Minneapolis from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
It's a free event open to everyone interested in innovating. We need a team of volunteers to make it happen!
