Yes! I'm very interested in starting a farmers' online social network. Eugene area farmers could exchange knowledge and resources for a robust local economy. Along with community soil sampling campaigns, on-the-ground datalogging (via smartphones) would be integrated and visualized by a software/app interface and benefit growers.Open-source, non-proprietary. I'd love to meet and see where I can contribute and collaborate. I hope there is overlap in our tech interests!
Beginning a PhD in Environmental Science at U of O. My background is mostly microbial ecology, Soil Quality (M.S.) and sustainable agriculture. I am looking to create an interactive web platform for local farmers.
