 Our Vision is to create an open and accessible technology aiding everyone to grow food and to grow food for everyone. Our Mission is to grow a community that produces free and open-source hardware plans, software, data, and documentation enabling everyone to build and operate a farming machine. Our Vision is to create an open and accessible technology aiding everyone to grow food and to grow food for everyone.
