About Us

From its earliest origins, LiteFarm has been a project built on interdisciplinary collaboration. Farmers, researchers, designers, software professionals, donors, open-source enthusiasts and many more have all played an important part in making LiteFarm what it is today.

LiteFarm is housed at the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at the University of British Columbia.

LiteFarm is a proud member of the OpenTEAM open-source consortium
