Marcin Jakubowski is open-sourcing a set of blueprints for 50 farming tools that can be built cheaply from scratch. Call it a "civilization starter kit."

Huge fan of Marcin & Factor E Farm's work. I think this is a totally appropriate setting for this kind of thinking. The open source framework and kit-of-parts could be tuned to the quality and availability of local materials and labor. It has to be context specific to work. I am highly skeptical of imported one-size-fits-all solutions, and more in support of highly flexible and adaptable tactics such as this. Excellent find!
