Dear All,The Landworkers Alliance present the first ever FarmHack event outside of north America at Ruskin Mill Farm, Gloucestershire on Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th April 2015. The event will bring together farmers, growers, fabricators, engineers and IT programmers to demonstrate and share tools, skills & ideas. Over the two days there will be field demonstrations, practical workshops, seminars, entertainment, good food, local ale and a stomping ceilidh.

FarmHack is a community of farmers and growers developing appropriate tools for small scale ecological farming. It was founded by The Greenhorns in the U.S. in 2010 and has since held regular events to bring the community together on farms and in workshops across the USA. FarmHack is founded on the principles of open source technology meaning that tools and techniques are also shared and developed on the online forum www.farmhack.net

Please help us to spread the word, especially to those who have appropriate tools and machinery to demonstrate. There are also a couple of free slots in the workshop sessions for anyone who has ideas, theories or technology of benefit to the FarmHack community. Please contact Ed directly on 07858 381539 or edhamer@riseup.net if you would like to present at FarmHack UK.

Booking is essential for the Ruskin Mill event and can be completed online here: http://landworkersalliance.org.uk/farmhack/

We look forward to seeing you there!
