Back to growBot Garden

The first public engagement in Spring 2010 for the growBot Garden team was the “Future of Farm” screening at Parkgrounds Coffee in Reynoldstown, Georgia.

A dual-screen setup was utilized for this event; wherein the clip reel was projected onto one screen, and a real-time feed of participant SMS-based conversation was projected on the second. Participants were able to engage in texting-based conversations during the screening.
