OSG's handwritten notes


As annunced Open Source Gardens is represented with a village at this year's Chaos Communication Camp. We bring a raised bed full of open source seeds and plants to be present in the Bits&Trees Habitat.

Lightning Talks

For the first time we run a dedicated “sprouting knowledge” session also known as “lightning talks”. We have just started our call for participation and we are looking for inspiring ideas and talks about everything related to open source and gardening: From software to hardware, from constructing your diy raised bed to maintaining a farmbot, from running a community garden to running open olitor, from plant-identification to garden management ... share your best practices with us!

To take part please send a mail to contact@opensourcegardens.info with a short description of your talk. We will let you know your acceptance by the end of the week.

The sprouting knowledge session will happen on Thursday, 17. August, at 18:00 hours in the workshop tent in the Bits&Bäume Habitat.
