✅What is farm hack and Peer2Peer learning?
Farm Hack is a learning network focusing on appropriate technology for the farming context. We get to learn new skills, see the inventions of our peers and learn what works for them.
We feel farmers and landworkers are a skilled bunch so we want to give the floor to our innovation and curiosity. Peer to Peer learning is simply a way to open the process of learning to be driven by our collective inquisition on the subject not the an assumed expert opinion. We will all be the teachers and we will all be the learners.
In this spirit we need you and your inventions!
✅Do you have a home made tool? Did you fix up your tractor? Do you have a burning question or a passion?
Well put your ideas down, a workshop proposal or a demonstration you want to give and email it to us. We will put you in the time table.
