we are not here to sell electronics nor boards. that’s why we share the designs and have a wiki, you can make your own refarm. there are no big factories producing our boards only small ones and they are the refarm groups that we are step by step spreading all over the planet. for example we are now in buenos aires and we don’t have any board with us. we contacted a local factory DAI ICHI (the only factory we fond with environmental concerns) we send them the designs and they are gonna make 20 boards for our workshops and the cceba farms. since we love process you can have a look on buenos aires flickr set and take a tour on DAI ICHI.
we were very welcomed by mr. henrique shoji. it will take 1 week to produce them so in the mean time we are going to find the components. I think farnel has some kind of representation here in argentina.
despise all this intents to get everything local from the seeds to the soil there aren’t components manufactures spread all over the planet. all the electronics in our days are produced in china and her neighbors. amazing china :) china has also more than 1000 different varieties of rice!! we definitely must go there:)
this is why we are here. we want to share the vegetables, know their conditions, their properties, how they fit on your gastronomy and on your urban farm.
after working all day in our wiki.. now we are gonna share some beers with articultores group :)
