Sustainable agriculture is built on creativity, innovation and sometimes just a jerry-rigged a stationary bicycle transformed into a low-cost chicken-plucker.
This summer, the Farmers Guild teams up with the Chimera Art Space for a Farm Hack, uniting makers, engineers, artists and tinkerers of every kind with local farmers to think up--and then build solutions to on-farm challenges. Join us!
AUGUST 2: Maker teams assemble at the Chimera Arts Space at 6pm to select projects, meet the farmers and begin to brainstorm their game plan. Info here.
AUGUST 17: Maker day! Chimera Arts Space opens their doors for a full afternoon of open studio space, in-person collaboration, welding, drilling, wiring and more.
SEPT 17: At this year's 3rd Annual Farmers Olympics at the Petaluma Fairgrounds, teams will present their final projects to a team of judges, vying for the gold medal and showing off their ingenuity.
