aka mojitos/gazpacho/location on wheels is an open hardware tool that has been designed to improve the fundraising of refarm groups worldwide.
Combining a cc-share-alike license, city trash and all the instructions to built one, this farm has funded our activities in 4 cities on the last 2 summers.
This farm is built with scrap materials found locally at every city and has an automatic watering system made with components from cars and washing ma chines. It is controlled by our free board, the refarm nano vacations V2.
It is a farm prepared to hit the road, go to a party, an opening, the beach or be used as a platform to give mini workshops about urban farming. The Mojito Farm concept was born at Eyebeam, NYC, and has been further developed in São Paulo, Vienna, Tarragona and Paris.
this was one of our best sellers :) the mojitos re:farm.
first appearance here in tarragona during ciutatscreactives.
a resume of the building process:
we got the structure from cal pobre. It belongs to the local scouts :)
we then made the mint pots. a mix of hydroponics and capillarity .
build the structure to hold all of the tools, pots, hold a cutting table, secrete spots to keep money, towels, refills and white rum :)
during the day workshops and fresh mint tea. during the night mojitos and real party-crowdfunding ;)
what a great learning and funding tool! thanks all for the contributions:)
