Question

I'm planning a 4-H Maker Festival in Leesburg, VA 10/4. I'd love to have a showcase of agricultural inventions such as this one at the event. Do you know of anyone in the Northern Virginia / Maryland area that I could reach out to?

Hi Lenah, I'm in Staunton, VA. We have a new makerspace and a lot of ag/farm type people... We are thinking about putting together a farmhack event. I don't have immediate connections for you but I'd love to keep you in mind as I network and work on this.

Hey there Kate,

Please be in touch with me so I can help you put together your event! daniel.b.grover@gmail.com
Let's open up a doc--have you seen the event template that we have?

Thanks!

Daniel

Great, yes, please do keep me in mind. I'll let you know if we come across anyone that would be good for your event too.

Also, just scanned the event template that Daniel sent out and realize I might be able to help. I did a Farmer to Farmer program in Zambia over a year ago now but have stayed in touch with the community helping them to expand on our original project which was all about tomato preservation. I taught them how to make sun-dried tomatoes, tomato powder, and tomato-peanut crackers (kind of like what might be called a raw bread here). So if that's helpful at all holler at me. I'm new to farm hacking and my husband and I just got 13 acres that we've just started farming, so we'd love to just attend too and learn from the community.
