14apr6:00 PM7:00 PMBackyard Farming DIY Kits Workshop


Event Details

AKER’s open source urban farming kits include designs for raised beds, a worm composter, a tiny backyard chicken coop, a beehive, and a vertical planter, suitable for both novice gardeners and skilled growers alike, and are “designed to make growing food a simple, beautiful experience.”

These flat-packable kits help boost urban agriculture by assembling quickly with no tools required.

In this workshop we will explore the full suite of open source tools for producing food and healthy soil in backyards, balconies, or community gardens, all of which can be “printed” from a sheet of plywood on a large-format CNC router.

The City of El Paso Office of Resilience and Sustainability will sponsor several of the Aker kits, which will be showcased at the workshop — from file preparation to machining to assembly.

Come to find out how you can jumpstart your backyard farm and make your lifestyle a healthier, greener, and more fulfilling experience.
