Growstuff is an open source/open data projects for people who grow their own food to track what they are planting and harvesting and to share resources and knowledge. Through Growstuff, members contribute to a data commons that helps us gather information about who’s growing what where. All Growstuff’s data is available via API or downloads.
As a project, Growstuff is inclusive and beginner-friendly, and we welcome new developers as well as those with more experience. We also need contributions from non-coding gardeners: crop wrangling, QA/testing, writing, design, and most especially sharing your own knowledge and experience about how you grow food — all are welcome. You can find out more information for developers/contributors at http://wiki.growstuff.org/
