Farm Hack went to Maker Faire NYC, and won four ribbons!
The Farm Hack crew headed to NYC last weekend to participate in Maker Faire NYC, a gathering of inventors of all kinds, from 3d printers (there were a lot of those) to a bike-powered transplanter/weeder from Andy and Steve from Pedal Power, based out of Essex, NY. The Pedal Power group also brought their pedal-powered sewing machine and generator, which were very popular with young faire-goers. They were also popular with the media – Andy was featured in NPR’s coverage of Maker Faire on Morning Edition!
In addition to the pedal power crew, Rob Rock of Pitchfork Farms brought his greens washer and frame-mounted flame weeder from Vermont, and Audrey and Daniel of DB CO-OP, a new bike-powered design collective out of Brooklyn, brought their leaf shredder.
