Raspberry Pi Bakeoff
My Raspberry Pi served duty as part of Garduino, a mix between Arduino and Raspberry Pi, combined with some moisture sensors, a relay and a water pump.
The Garduino was developed by Shawn Goicoechea, part of LaLucha Space and is quite clever. It is a way for your garden to know when it is too dry, and turn on a water sprinkler if it is late enough in the day. The Raspberry Pi can update a webpage with its status or send an email notification.
The Garduino took first place at the bakeoff. It was created primarily for the Faulkner County Urban Farm Project
