How to Have Custom Machinery Built for Your Farm

Tuesday, November 28, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM   

With a healthy use of technology, machinery can ease the transition to organic agriculture. Using a current case study of designing a compost spreader for Broadfork Farm of River Hebert, Nova Scotia, we'll outline all the steps from how to find design ideas, to prioritizing which features are most valuable, and how to make sure your ideas are communicated to ensure you're happy with the results. Workshop participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions related to their specific projects.
