See examples of successful DIY tools and dream up your own in Montana's
first ever Farm Hack! It's a new event that's sweeping the nation, bringing
together farmers, builders, and tech folks to create on-farm solutions!
This event will offer attendees the opportunity to learn from some of our
region's experts on tools you can use to improve your farm and reduce your
equipment costs.

Two-hour workshops will be offered simultaneously by the following experts:

   - *Blacksmithing* with *Mark VanderMeer* of *Bad Goat Forest Products*:
   Learn the basics by developing a simple hand weeder and attaching wooden
   handles

   - *Welding *with* Jimmy Willett*: Learn the basics of welding to fix
   your machines and build new tools

   - *Incorporating Bike Parts* with *Bob Giordano* of *Freecycles:* Learn
   how to reduce equipment costs by adding cheap or free bike parts to your
   tool-building know-how

   - And You!

We'll finish out the day with a few beers and pizza will be available from
the Clove Cart Pizza Peddlers!  Join us!
