Hello everyone,

In my home region (http://osm.org/go/etihfKs--?m=) in the midlands of
Ireland a local volunteer group has asked me to give a lecture/talk to the
local farming community (and anyone else who is interested) on the topic of
"Open Source Farming" or "Open Source Agriculture". The talk is scheduled
for the end of January 2017.

The theme of the talk is to try to reach out and engage with the sizeable
local farming community on the topics of using Open Source Software, Open
(Geo)Data, Open Hardware, etc in the management of their agricultural
business. Basically show the audience some really good examples from
agriculture around the world.

My email is to ask if any of you have links to (1) similar presentations,
lectures, webinars, videos or (2) examples of OSGeo software use in
agriculture, etc. Indeed any fun, interesting, or cool ideas that would be
of interest to an agriculture/rural audience.

My idea is that if there is enough interest in the audience I will try to
look to develop some outreach teaching using OSGeo Live for these

I will credit all contributions and shall be making my slides openly
available after the presentation. I'll report back to the mailing lists.

Greetings for the holiday season and best wishes for 2017,
