Growstuff Community Guidelines

Growstuff is a community by and for food-gardeners. Together, we are building a website where we can share our experience, knowledge, and the products of our harvest. The most important thing about Growstuff is the people. For Growstuff to thrive, we need people to add their crops, share their knowledge, and help build the site itself.

Whatever your interest in Growstuff you are welcome here, and will be treated with respect. In particular:

If you want to participate in the Growstuff community (which includes our website and any auxiliary forums such as our mailing list(s), IRC channel, etc), you need to agree to our general commitment to inclusiveness and mutual respect, as well as to the following specific policies:

If you experience or witness behaviour that goes against these community guidelines, you can report it to We will listen carefully and take your report seriously. Once we've looked into the situation, we may take any action we deem necessary. For instance, we may issue a warning, or in serious cases we may suspend or ban people from our community. If this happens, we will always tell the person affected the reason for our action, with reference to our policy documents.

We don't want to make these guidelines too long or legalistic, so we'll leave it there, except for one final guideline. As Bill and Ted said: be excellent to each other. And grow stuff.
