General development goals
Big agenda - engineering schools/hacker spaces connected through farm hack library
Ag-education NGOs use Farm Hack and shared platform for tool library, problem statements - coordinate on userID, blogs, forums etc.
Kristen undefinedThe platform is built on Drupal and the community, and all products of it, are available to, and editable by all. It is horizontal exchange of information, principles, and mechanical ideas.
On the website you can contribute or learn from a forum, or the tool wikis.
The site works because users document the tools they’ve made or modified. This creates a directory of innovations, and ideas to build from. Each tool is documented in the Farm Hack method using links, videos, components, and schematics for works in progress or functioning prototypes. You can even offer polished products as kits for sale.
We hope you will join the farm hack community, join in the spirit of open source, of mutual aid, appropriate technology, and mechanical innovation,to join us in the regional manufacturing and fabrication of good tools for good farms.
