Graine a humus - Graineahumus (talk)

Many projects under free licence are on the web. It's not always easy to find about them (except software)...

Our (French) association "De la graine à l'humus" ( creates free open source resources for sustainable development.

So we did a "Library of free projects" (excluding software). Art, science, architecture, comics, movies, pictures,... can be found under Creative commons licences, but also Open hardware, GFDL, public domain, Art Libre, FOIA…

We did this project on another platform ( but we think it would gather much more resources by being part of Wikimedia, and so share way more knowledge.

Free projects have so many unknown shapes (to the public) that we would like to be more shared and used.
