Control over one's food is indispensable to human dignity. We aim to provide information and tools to allow anyone anywhere to care of their own food needs. We are collecting tools and know-how about different methods of producing food. Pick-and-mix according to your own needs, preferences and local opportunities.

See Open Source Agroecology for the general food-production philosophy of the Open Ecology project

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. A food system characterized by centralized production and top-down distribution has led to a billion people being undernourished; decentralized food-production leads to 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.
