    Fertile Landscapes Plow

    Fertile Landscapes Plow

    Franck Chevallier has developed a open source subsoiler which is designed to be able to be built by local metal workers using readily available materials. In 2016 Regrarians' Darren J. Doherty instigated the formation of a working group to develop formal CAD plans to support Franck's effort and to further develop the #KeylineSuperPlow concept we've been working on since 2006/7. Luke Hallam came to the fore with the development of many CAD concept models and these are manifested in this set of working drawings. Luke and Franck have done a great service in doing this fantastic and unpaid work! The best feature of Franck's design is the very unique and effective shank break out mechanism. Its superior to any other system commercially available, with the exception of the very expensive hydraulic break out systems. The next step is to have the #KeylineSuperPlow concept go through a similar CAD process and this is now underway.

    Sweat Box Germination Chamber

    Sweat Box Germination Chamber

    A "sweat box" style germination chamber built using readily available parts and a broken chest freezer. Early season germination can be inconsistent without a closely controlled environment for starting seeds. Commercial greenhouses use similar systems but the cost can be prohibitive for the small vegetable grower.

    Remote Compost Monitor

    Remote Compost Monitor

    As part of a master composting class I created a composting and computer science lesson plan. It teaches composting, and then includes a project where students create an arduino powered device to collect temperature and moisture levels of a compost pile (or anything, really) and then send it to a web application they create. Instructions, materials, and source code for everything is here. There are tons of ways it could be improved, as it was only designed to teach concepts. My plan was to leave it here and move along to another project, but I figured there might be some folks out there that want to collaborate make it a more useful monitoring product!
