The Growing Data Foundation supports open projects and systems and, in particular, the development of sustainable open solutions for community improvement and social good.

Major projects

The Things Network South Australia

We are advocating for the development of a city-wide Internet of Things data network in Adelaide. A network that can talk to the internet without 3G or WiFi (no and has low battery usage, long range and low bandwidth extends opportunities for makers, inventors and creatives.

Minor Projects

First Names Here

Names and language are not just words – they are closely linked to our identity and culture. Aboriginal communities are sharng their languages through story, song and eduction.

What lives here?

Providing nesting boxes is a start but to truly protect threatened species we need to know more. We use technology to monitor, measure and return data to inform future decisions.

What grows here?

Whether you are a revegetation project team member, landscaper or gardener the ‘What Grows Here?’ app will help you find plants that best suit your space and needs. Learners can learn about local bird life.


We all stand on the shoulders of giants across many open source communities. We’d like to thank the communities and projects that established code of conducts and diversity statements as our inspiration:
