Observing that the control over one's food is indispensable to human dignity, we aim to provide the information and tools for anyone to care of their own food needs. To this end, we are collecting resources, tools and know-how about several different methods of food-production. A single community will probably not need all of them, but they are provided here so that you can pick-and-mix according to your own needs, preferences and local opportunities.

The tools given here can be used to grow healthy, fresh, organic food in a sustainable way. No input of pesticide or fertilizer is needed, there is no accumulating damage to the ecosystem and the food produced is filled with the things human beings need for robust health.

We are enabling a radical decentralization of food production. Rather than growing food on large industrial farms and shipping it to processing plants to be turned into mass-produced goods, we are giving people the tools to grow the food they need in their own backyard, balcony or local allotment. This decentralization is necessitated by the fact that a food system dependent on centralized production and top-down distribution has led to a billion people being undernourished. Greater decentralization of food-production leads to more equitable distribution of food. It also eliminates the need for transporting food, which inevitably involves some of it spoiling and also requires unnecessary expenditure of fuel and energy resources.
