I don’t know about you, but I the list of words that I can actually read is French is pretty short, spans the length of soufflé to the lyrics of “Lady Marmalade.” So, when I look at this website, I can just barely string enough cognates and context clues together to glean the most basic and yet exciting fact: there will be a Farm Hack event in France June 17th-19th!
But that’s really neither here nor there. The point is, there’s a farm hack in FRANCE. And we think that’s pretty freaking great. Maybe you read French. Maybe you live in France. Maybe you can glean more information from this than I can.
