OPEN FARMS is the third episode of GODAN's (Global Open Data for Agriculture & Nutrition) new documentary web series that meets individuals around the world who are on the frontline of how technology and data are reshaping agriculture to combat food insecurity and improve global nutrition. Open data makes that knowledge available to everyone.

This episode follows the story of how modern technology and open data are transforming Tuckaway Farm in Lee, New Hampshire. Dorn Cox, a farmer on the 250-acre family-run farm and Network Team member, says that every modern farm should be a research farm, and he is incorporating open data technologies into his work. His work has resulted in an open-source Drupal farm management solution called FarmOS. Watch the episode to learn more about the innovations going on at Tuckaway Farm.

The Interaction Institute for Social Change (IISC) on Tapping Collective Genius:

Our fate is shared and ALL voices must be empowered to realize our collective genius. Collaborative Change Agents ask, who is not here? What perspectives are missing?

We can create a world that is better for future generations using collaborative change. To do this, we need everyday leaders who shift power dynamics towards justice, weave vibrant networks, and magnify love.

We are working with IISC to apply Collaborative Change to the New England Food System!
