We facilitate workshops, trainings, and collaborative development focused on building locally-owned, resilient municipal and community infrastructure using an open, collaborative design process. Get in touch with us at: collaborate at edgecollective dot io! Recent projects include:

  • resilient communication systems
  • off-grid water monitoring (flood, drought, salinity)
  • retrofitting greenhouse control systems
  • capturing soil health data from remote farm fields

You can view all of our designs and code on github here.

Looking forward to collaborating!
