The Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI) and Farm Hack have just launched a collaborative Kickstarter campaign for Growing Innovation, a project to create an open source online library of agricultural innovations and a new book documenting sustainable models developed by farmers.
The online library will include a searchable database and interactive maps of farm projects, including detailed plans
from blueprints to budgets. The book will feature exemplary farm projects from RAFI’s archive, projects that are highly replicable and adaptable to variety of contexts.
RAFI’s staff members expect the new online library will be an especially helpful resource for beginning farmers searching for new ideas for sources of agricultural income, as well as transitioning farmers seeking tested models and stories they can relate to.
