Thanks for sharing this, Julie!

St. Louis has a thriving Open Source ag-tech community. For anyone who doesn’t know, that’s where the MVP/$300 Food Computer was developed. @drewthomas89 and myself will be applying for an Arch Grant in order to continue forward with this project as MARSfarm - I encourage everyone to check out this great opportunity.


I just wanted to follow-up on this and say that there are 4 startups from the OpenAg community in the finals for an Arch Grant which is just phenomenal!
