Build a Personal Food Computer

Tim Savas, MIT Open Agriculture Initiative

OpenAg is committed to changing the way the world thinks about farming and food—and we need your help! As an open source project, we believe the more Food Computers we all build, the more data we all have to play with, and the more we can radically alter the future of food!
