We've had a busy week, co-hosting FarmHack Iowa, a tremendous success. FarmHack is a series of workshops that brings farmers, engineers, designers, and programmers together to create new ideas, and solve old problems. Created as a project of the National Young Farmers Coalition and The Greenhorns, it's a fun event with real-world practicality.
Hear Harvest Public Media's NPR coverage here.
Kristen Loria of FoodCorps and Grant Schultz of VersaLand Farm joined forces to organize and host the event. The University of Iowa Memorial Union, Echollective CSA, and Members of the University of Iowa Student Garden all provided host locations for the event and abundant meals. (we also had some frosty gifts from New Belgium Brewery)
