Three RSA Fellows are involved in organising a Farm Hack as part of Manchester Science Festival. Join Erinma Ochu FRSA, Caroline Ward FRSA and Anne Dornan FRSA on 24th October to help solve farming problems by designing new open source tools, working alongside farmers, scientists, engineers, artists and designers.
A Farm Hack is a brainstorming event that brings together people from all walks of life to collaborate as a community to come up with innovative ideas for problems that farmers are facing. It is the beginning of a community process of designing, building, and documenting tools for resilient agriculture.
Location: CityLabs, Nelson Street, Manchester, M13 9NQ
