On Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th April 2015 The Landworkers Alliance will be hosting the first ever FarmHack event outside of north America at Ruskin Mill Farm, Gloucestershire.

The event will bring together farmers, growers, fabricators, engineers and IT programmers to demonstrate and share tools, skills and ideas. Over the two days there will be field demonstrations, practical workshops, seminars, entertainment, good food, local ale and a stomping ceilidh.

Here is a link to a wonderfully informative video by the ‘FarmHack’sters’ which explains what they are about:
