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