You might reach out to the Rodale Institute directly--I'll bet they could help you with photos.

Hi Joel -
Good catch! I'm currently running a test on the front page to see how replacing the video with text impacts engagement with the site. You can still find the video featured prominently at the top of our "Getting Started" wiki page. http://farmhack.org/wiki/getting-started

Some background on the change:
I did a bunch of interviews at NOFA VT Winter Conference a couple months ago and I got a lot of feedback that people did not want to watch a video and then saw that they had a hard time articulating what Farm Hack is. The statement "We are a worldwide community of farmers that build and modify our own tools. We share our hacks online and at meet ups because we become better farmers when we work together." is my best shot at describing us in few words. The traffic and the interviews indicate that visitors mostly just want to see tools, thus the new front page is almost like a new tools landing page.

I do like the video as well, it is beautiful and if someone takes the time to watch it, I think it serves to build their understanding. Perhaps we can come up with a way to have the video and the text on the front page but we have to consider in the context of all other competing elements of the valuable front page real estate.

Competing elements:
- Blog
- What Farm Hack is
- Navigation to other parts of the site
- Tools
- Upcoming events
- Recent conversations
- more....

@Joel Would you like to join us for the FarmHack.org call at 7pm EDT on Thursday? Thanks for the feedback.

On the Heritage Radio Network there're lots of good shows. Greenhorns Radio is specifically for and about young farmers.

The Ship's Log looks awesome, you should definitely post about that on the Fido forum.

Hi Bill,
I sympathize with the amount of work it takes to replace real data with sample data. A program is often hard to understand without some sample data running through it.

Good luck with getting it ready!

Test test.

Just ran across an update from the Farm 2 Plate initiative in VT and thought it might be interesting to those pushing this forward. They mentioned that LiDAR data has been used to aid in food system planning/implementation efforts in the Mississquoi watershed. I'm no expert on LiDAR but I wonder if the ways they use use LiDAR might be helpful for what Dorn is trying to accomplish. They do mention that the data is useful for "biomass".

"This data will be extremely useful to a wide variety of applications from identifying agriculture soils that are available for production, flood plain mapping, renewable energy siting, Forestry, Biomass, & Vegetation Management.Existing LiDAR coverage has been completed within the Mississquoi watershed, Essex County and a few small regional efforts; statewide coverage will greatly enhance our food system planning and implementation efforts. This is a high priority strategy within the F2P Plan and connects to Goals 5, 6, and 7."

Check out "Team LiDAR"
