“Our Sci aims to equip small farmers with the analytical tools and scientific understanding that are used by big agriculture corporations, but are prohibitively expensive for individuals. The affordable Reflectometer as a tool can empower individuals and communities to better understand their land, how different farming practices can affect it and can give them the knowledge to advocate for themselves at a regional or policy level,” says Ria Hawthorn, Assistant Curator of the 27th Ljubljana Biennial of Design, in our interview.
“At CarboFarm, we want to deliver token economics in such a way that there will be an incentive for the farmer aside from certificates. At CarboFarm, we value the cobenefits of carbon farming.
