“The future of food is in your hands”
Growstack is an open source community investigating and experimenting with concrete solutions to improve our food system benefitting humans and the globe now and in the future.
Without new technology the human race will not be able to feed itself within the current generation. Moreover, the current food supply chain is highly environmentally unsustainable and leaves a lot to wish for in terms of food quality, food safety, resilience and transparency.
While more communication about these issues is also needed, Growstack focuses on doing something about it by experimenting with actual solutions.
Growstack & Nextfood
Nextfood is one of 3 founding partners in Growstack (together with IDA and CPH Foodtech Community). We donated hardware and software to Growstack as open source, for community members to explore and hack soilless technology, soilless growing and cooking. And we are actively engaged in the community.
Nextfood open source platform
The Internet would never have become the Internet if one company had owned it. Like many other technology driven disruptions, the winning food technology stack will be open to third party modification.
We believe that everybody is better off with a shared open platform for plant production. Thus, we open source part of our hardware and software through Growstack.
