A network of farmers, engineers, and supporters, is putting together detailed DIY guides for creating your own farm equipments and other machines.

The DIY Village Construction Set is interested in opening up the circulation of knowledge around everyday things. They are demystifying the machines and how-they-work so that all users can build and modify them according to needs and situations. Central to their open-source technology platform is the Global Village Construction Set

It features 50 different modular tools/technologies, across six thematic categories of habitat, agriculture, industry, energy, materials and transportation. Together, these tools form a functional ecology, that allows various needs to be addressed by different combination of them. The emphasis is again not only on the DIY technological solutions, but on the sustainable form of resilient village life that such technology can facilitate : DIY Village Construction Set (Stir In Some Arduino)
