Dear Karrot users, foodsavers, people interested in sharing technologies and potential developers out there,
we’d like to invite you to participate in the Karrot weekend (last weekend of January) at Kanthaus in Wurzen. The weekend is part of Karrot’s hackweek and will be all about working together to improve Karrot, discuss its future development and usage and share practical experiences. Most important is getting together, getting to know each other more and strenghtening our bonds as a grassroots movement using technology to share resources in a sustainable way.
Software development skills are much appreciated but definitely not a requirement, as long as you are an active user interested in the improvement of Karrot.
The event will take place at Kanthaus, located in Wurzen, a town 20 minutes away by train from Leipzig. Kanthaus is a collective housing project focusing on the sustainable and conscious use and sharing of resources, hosting a number of events and projects related to the topic.
At Kanthaus you will experience a place where the path to communal, sustainable living and caring is being enacted in a constant flow of experimentation with technology and social organisation combined with a hands-on approach.
Participation in the event is free of charge. Accomodation (shared rooms by default, although some private rooms are available) and saved food will be provided. All that is expected from you is some participation in some of the daily tasks (like helping out with saving food, cooking or cleaning the premises). Donations are welcome, but not explicitly asked for.
Some travel costs can be reimbursed. Contact us for details.
If you’re interested, just let us know! We’re happy to discuss the details and answer whatever question you might have. You’re also welcome to join our weekly online meeting on Mondays at 12:30.
