Jul 25, 2019

Farm Hack Thames Valley 2019 [FHTV19] is a weekend event exploring and developing technologies and tools for progressive farming, it will be held on 16th – 18th August at Greenbroom Farm, B4526 Crays Pond, Reading RG8 7SG.

Discover more about this exciting event from the Farm Hack project team:

FHTV19 is being organised, by volunteers as a collaborative event. You can find out how you can get involved helping put the event together or collaborate in the design of some tools that we hope to build during the event here.

The program for the weekend is still under development, you can input into the process, or keep track of the latest here.

We want FHTV19 to be open to everyone, but there are costs to cover. If you can afford to pay more than the base ticket price we request that you do, so that we can offer more reduced rate places.

You can click on the ticket price and increase to what you wish to pay. Any money left, after expenses have been covered, will be put aside as a seed fund for future Farm Hack events.

If you can’t afford a ticket, but would like to join us for the weekend, please contact us at thamesvalleyfarmhack@mailo.com to enquire about subsidised places.

Ticket price includes a camping pitch on site & beautifully prepared vegan food, from Friday evening, until Sunday lunch. You are welcome to bring your own food, but cooking facilities on site are limited.

Getting to Thames Valley Farm Hack 2019

There is very limited parking on site and public transport links are not great.
We will be arranging pick-ups and drop-offs from Goring and Streatly train station.
We also have some additional parking available, but it is a couple of miles away from the site.

We encourage people to use public transport where possible and to car share.
Please contact us to make parking arrangements if you hope to drive to the event thamesvalleyfarmhack@mailo.com
We ask people who are driving, and have space to bring someone else to add themselves & contact details to the car share list on the transport pad.

Join the discussion online now to begin contributing to the build projects, to help shape the programme, or for more information on how to volunteer click here.
