Attention Central Valley farmers, engineers, makers, mechanics, builders, and innovators!

Put your skills and yearning for collaboration to work at the upcoming Farm Hack in Davis! Farm Hack design events are meant spark collaboration and creative design to help make our region's small-scale agriculture stronger and more resilient. This event will bring together farmers and makers to develop, document and design low-cost, low-tech tools, improve efficiency of existing tools, or hack other agricultural issues that are common barriers for local farmers. Come be a part of improving local agriculture!

Call to Farmers! Help shape the Farm Hack Davis event and register your idea, problem, or project!

Are you a farmer with a project you've started working on, have an idea on the back burner that you think is ripe for new designs, or a problem on your farm that you want help fixing?
