GreenStart

GreenStart's mission is to foster a resilient energy and food system for New Hampshire by providing technical education and practical agricultural examples. An educational non-profit organization established in 2006, GreenStart sees food and fuel security as the end-product of a vibrant, sustainable agriculture system in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire has 40% of its land area in agricultural soils, yet farms only 10% and imports 95% of its food and fuel. New Hampshire has no significant petroleum resources. To feed and fuel itself from sustainable natural resources, New Hampshire must improve its soils while also improving production.

To achieve this end, GreenStart facilitates projects that
1) increase soil carbon “banking”
2) decrease energy inputs
3) increase both food and fuel outputs (positive energy and carbon balance)
4) promote “tight” cycling of nutrients
5) provide opensource access to appropriate knowledge, seeds and equipment

Hi Joel,
Please do share! I think most folks have posted links, or embedded the content in a tool forum post. You could also start a stand alone wiki and link to it. If you are up for writing a blog about it, there is a team that is gearing up to generate more blog content which might be a good fit too. We have talked about adding more of this reddit type of function to the social side of the site, so it is great to hear your take on it.

Of course it would be fantastic to reach out to the author and see if they would cross post directly themselves...

The Farm Hack web team is working on some improvements to the tool pages, so stay tuned and look forward to your feedback! The new tool organization may make posting these kinds of links clearer - I think it would be great if we had a space(Skills section) for curating videos of fabrication and other technical skills that the Farm Hack community finds useful.
