This fall we will be installing a Farmbot Express XL which is an open source gantry robot for gardening.

Farmbot the company has recently released a number of analysis

And integral to how we’ll be using it, connecting Farmbot and education.

Beyond just producing food, we have a few goals for our farmbot installation.

  1. A platform for experimenting with Agrobotics technology.
  2. Using it as an educational platform for our 4-H club.
  3. Using automation to do experiments with large numbers of varietals of vegetables to improve biodiversity which would be difficult to implement manually.
