As many of you know, rogueApron is just one of the many interesting projects regarding food that I am involved in.
I would like to take a moment to introduce the growBot Garden project to you. I am part of a Georgia Tech team that is exploring how technologies could impact organic farming.
If there was an inexpensive robot that could help small-scale growers, what would it do? Our project is to create the conversation spaces for these imaginative talks - not to build the robots.
That's where you come in. We are seeking farmers, gardeners, co-producers and other interested parties to participate in a growBot workshop in early May.
Participants would learn about robotics technologies, enjoy a free catered local organic lunch, and brainstorm with other growers. Think art installation meets rogueApron dinner, with a healthy dose of technology and freethinking.
We are gathering mailing addresses of farmers, gardeners, co-producers, and other interested parties in order to send a formal invitation via the mail: tinyurl.com/growBot-mailing.
We'll host a public reception at 7pm, following the event. GT policy dictates that this is a Bring Your Own Refreshments event. The space is **rad** and you'll get to check out all the neat ideas generated during the day!
