Thanks to everyone who came to the Farm Hack event here on Sunday, and to the organizers, Young Farmers Coalition, and to Severine and the Whallonsburg Grange and all the volunteers who put it together. Here are the farm hackers in the field:
The purpose of Farm Hack is to bring brainy brains together to help strengthen sustainable agriculture. Mark fell madly in love with Dorn Cox of Tuckaway Farm in Lee, New Hampshire. Dorn is working on producing food and fuel with a positive energy and carbon balance, using both draft horses and biodiesel. His work on organic no-till methods is particularly interesting to us. Check out his non-profit, Green Start. I see a trip to Lee in our family’s near future.
