Open Source Project Node


UFG Lykins Campus serves as an open source project node, open workspace and laboratory that serves to document and broadcast low tech, appropriate technologies and best practices at work.  It is a place where global contributors to open source projects can apply to come and work in our Makerspace and live locally for the duration of their project, especially any project that advances Local Economy, Local Capacity, and Local Resiliency and is willing to be documented through an open-source model.  Likewise, partnering villages or nodes give back to the global open source community through the sharing of information and resources.  During your stay, you will have access to the MakerSpace & workshop within walking distance of your housing for the low cost of boarding or for free if commissioned or participating in a sponsored project. See sponsored projects here.


Resident Makers/ Artists / Farmers / Welders/ Scientists/ Engineers &  Builders of all sorts.

We are looking for highly skilled individuals who may want to come and stay for 1 – 6 months and volunteer some hours  in trade for room and access to the makerspace and farm, with opportunities to make a little extra $ teaching classes and doing projects while you are here.   Come and contribute your skills to something great & meet other amazing people along the way.  Come for as long or short as you like. Applications and more info here
