I've been on Mastodon over at
social.weho.st/@dazinism
I'm based in the UK and into food, land, tech and people collaborating to manage them.
I'm involved in a few projects -

ourfieldproject.org/ 40 people using online tools to collaborate managing a field

travellingtoolbox.org.uk/ is a mobile hackspace/workshop set up to help environmental & community projects build & fix tools and infrastructure

farmhack.org/wiki/soilhack-wik Soilhack is a peer 2 peer learning network

I've also been working on a project that aims to acquire land to facilitate an open co-operative growing project focusing on production,research,education, collaborative governance,access to land, restorative agriculture

The idea is to use provisions in land use regulations to have temporary accommodation on the land during times when there are seasonal agricultural or forestry workers present

Securing a number of sites will allow a nomadic land workforce & supporting infrastructure to develop

@dazinism there is a 'project' (founded by Dr. John D. Liu) called "ecosystem restoration camps" they have an active site in Murcia, Spain for min. 5yrs.
NB. It's supported by the w/ funding from & {runs away screaming}

@adinfinitum yeah a friend sent me something about the concept early this year, also stumbled on something about their crowd funding a couple of weeks back. Didn't know about 5yrs or the giant institution backing - nice to see a project like this getting that kind of backing. Should help amplify the ideas.

@dazinism Hey I figure y'all probably know but a heads up just in case. I was trying to checkout ourfieldproject.org and noticed it was down.

Seems like a cool project. I'm interested in reading any learnings that have come out of it if they're online anywhere?

@tulsi

Oh, I didnt. Thanks

The person that set that up has pretty much left the project

The site & domain are on squarespace. Not sure how much grief it'll be for us to get better control

Can look here

I'm also involved in a UK based Community Supported Agriculture project where the focus is growing food for members (stuff that has a long shelf life)

Need to post as I think a grower has just planted some winter beans for us!

@dazinism
Ouch situations like that are always a pain. I hope someone else has the login.

Thanks for those links. I'll take a look :_earth:
