A draft working document for build project leads is available here.
Problem Solving/Project Design
Termed “Farm Hack Triage” by the US groups. An open space for problem discussion & early design work (build requiring materials is better partially planned in advance).
Future Farm Hacks
A series of seminars and discussions on how we’ve gone about organising this hack and how it could be done differently in the future. We hope to inspire attendees to organise their own hacks over the coming months/years.
Was wondering if you’ve had any thoughts about budget for program related stuff?
I’m thinking travel or material costs that we may want to cover for people providing stuff for the program. This could get quite big if we are going to cover travel for people for people coming from further away.
Theres the potential to cover a lot of the expenses via grant funding, but we need to get a draft budget together in the next couple of days, in order to put in an application to the fund we we have been looking at.
Sorry I haven’t been involved up until now but would like to be much more proactive from now on.
So as promised I will start to list some workshop ideas to get an idea of what we would like to see;
hot wire bed cutter
rocket stove construction
traditional greenbroom bed making
making a cob oven
making a dehydrator
solar hot water workshop
pond digging and pumping water with solar pv
there’s a few ideas to be going on with…
i might contact off-grid to see if they know of anyone at a loose end to do a workshop.
there is also hardwick estate who may have some ideas.
I propose buying two of these and constructing a frame for them to sit on and holders for two gas bottles in the wheelbarrow. Also I need to create a hood over the area being flamed to increase efficiency of the burn.
Any suggestions or ideas gratefully received. Becca
