The Landworkers’ Alliance are putting a session together for the excellent Oxford Real Farming Conference (www.orfc.org.uk) in January and we need people to contribute. Do you have a tool you’ve developed that you would be up for introducing and speaking about?
Please get in touch soon - we need to finalise the session by the end of the month.
Any questions, let me know!
We’ve been working on various open hardware tools for small farms – our focus is very much on ‘technological sovereignty’ – approaches to tool design that give farmers greater control and autonomy with respect to their infrastructure (e.g. monitoring greenhouse temp, peer-to-peer data storage, low-power local radio comm). If it’s not too late, I’d love to demo some specific designs at the Oxford Real Farming Conference, and also solicit feedback on the philosophy / critique we’ve been developing in this area.
Cheers, and thanks!
