Using FarmBot as an Accessibility Technology

Thrive Upstate is a non-profit in Greenville, South Carolina that provides people with disabilities services, opportunities, and support, so they may thrive. Check out how they use FarmBot for horticultural therapy and to empower individuals who otherwise could not grow their own food.

Developed by a team of three from California, the Farmbot is an autonomous machine that’s installed atop and around a small garden—in your backyard, on a rooftop, or inside a greenhouse or lab.

Once built, Genesis performs nearly the entire gardening process prior to harvesting, including planting the seeds, watering each plant precisely and on a set schedule, monitoring conditions, and pulverizing pesky weeds. Learn more about Farmbot and how to build one on Wevolver.
