About inter-agriculture.org
A community platform that is built for the love of growing, farming, horticulture, plant breeding, plant science and the relationship between biology and technology. It is also a platform that is built on the ideas of open source knowledge, scientific exchange, sustainable farming practices and the basic right of every human being to have healthy, clean, affordable food available to them.
In the coming years, we will be seeing a rapid digitisation of agriculture. There is a large amount of private investment taking place in the industry. Clearly, education interests are intertwined with business interests. In this type of climate, we feel the need for non-commercial resources that are free from profit motives and purely designed to further the understanding of growing food, both in depth and to a broader audience. This should happen, while at the same time maintaining and exceeding the quality levels of commercial grade resources. Our work is here, not to replace or supplant profit-driven solutions, but instead are meant to augment and support them, wherever a non-commercial solution might be more viable than what is possible commercially.
Domain scope
The domain of the tools and resources that will be published through inter-agriculture will be largely defined by the expertise of the contributors. With one of the core principles being the bridging between disciplines and agricultural domains, inter-agriculture was established within the broader scope of agriculture, instead of a domain such as horticulture, permaculture or controlled environment agriculture. There will be an emphasis on plant-based agriculture, but there will also be space for hosting resources on other types of farming.

Our "Products" or "Services"

Inter-agriculture.org is dedicated to encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free multilingual content, and to hosting the full content of our resources for the public free of charge. Our role is to build and host some of the most interesting open-source agriculture tools, which can be found here. We act both as a hosting and development service, maintaining the infrastructure and organizational framework that allows our users to benefit from the tools we've built with the community without charge, in perpetuity. Because of our unique role, there are a couple of things you should be aware of when considering our relationship to you as a contributor or user. We do not take an editorial role: all our content and tools are collaboratively developed, all of the content that we host is provided by users like yourself, and we do not take an active role in its propositions. This means that we generally do not monitor or edit the content of the Project websites, and we do not take any responsibility for this content. Similarly, we do not endorse any opinions expressed via our services, and we do not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any submitted community content. Instead, we simply provide access to the content that our core contributors have contributed and edited.

On financial transactions towards the platform

Our resources are available completely free of charge in perpetuity. Hence, we have receive no financial transactions in exchange for products or services. For the purposes of development, hosting and organisational cost, we receive support in the form of financial contributions from our donors. These contributions are received as financial transaction through our platform, payed by iDeal, credit card or paypal. These contributions are one-way transactions and should therefore never be considered as interactions of a commercial kind. In order to honor the relationship with our dedicated contributors, we do bestow some special features on accounts held by users who have contributed more than 25 euros to any of the inter-agriculture funding campaigns. Examples of these special features are access to early versions of tools in development, opportunities to offer tool design input and mentions in the Donor hall of fame
