Raspberry Pi Projects

On Wednesday, June 22 from 7-8 PM, we’re meeting in the Auditorium to explore projects you can build using the inexpensive Raspberry Pi computer platform. All ages welcome!

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

What’s more, the Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras. Raspberry Pi makes learning to program and understanding how computers work fun.

The Future of Urban Ag

On Tuesday, June 21 from 6-8 PM, we’re getting together in the Auditorium to discuss Lawrence’s new urban agriculture code with area growers and planners.

This is your opportunity to share thoughts about the future of urban agriculture in the city.

In May of 2016, the City of Lawrence passed a suite of new policies relating to urban agriculture. The Douglas County Food Policy Council worked closely with interested citizens and city staff to develop new options for food production in the city, including beekeeping, small goats and sheep, on-site sales, and the creation of a specialized “Urban Farm” designation.

The panel will feature:

  • Moderator: Helen Schnoes | Douglas County Food Systems Coordinator
  • Jill Elmers | Food Policy Council, Moon on the Meadow Farm, and Common Harvest Farm
  • Mary Miller | City of Lawrence Planning Department
  • Emily Ryan | Citizen grower
