I have just started volunteering at Oxford City Farm and one of my jobs is to set up a database to catalogue all their produce, how much is sold or distributed (to volunteers etc), and how much income the farm gets for each crop. Being able to geenrate useful reports based on the data is a key feature as well as being able to input the data easily (for non tech users).
They have Google Apps (free for charity, I think) so I was initially thinking of setting up spreadsheets etc in Drive to manage this but am wondering if there is any free / open source software projects out there that do this kind of thing.
@chris put me on to Open Food Network which looks pretty good but seems more geared towards selling via an online shop (we don’t need this functionality as it will all be wholesale or direct cash sales, no online selling).
@nick maybe you have some ideas?
Any advice / suggestions would be appreciated!
