Administration & Finance for Eco Hacker Farm

Abbreviations used in this page EHF for Eco Hacker Farm

We currently receive no financial support from governmental bodies, foundations, or other NGOs. Individuals who support our projects donate money to keep us going.

Members are able to provide loans to Eco Hacker Farm at times when these are needed, as a necessity and not on a whim. The aim of the project is ultimately to be self sufficient and therefore not need credit from its members.

A practical example of a situation where a loan is necessary is as follows:

  • We have pre-approved annual server fees that are paid for by member X (due to admin rights)
  • Member X provides EHF with proof of payment
  • Member X has 3 options:
    • inform EHF to treat the payment as a donation
    • inform EHF to treat the payment as a loan and get reimbursed after 1 week
    • inform EHF to treat the payment as a loan and let us know the reimbursement is not needed until a later date

It is important to note that members are only reimbursed when these are pre-approved by EHF. If you are interested you can read more about the terms for pre-approval of expenses and reimbursements / loan repayment.

Here we provide information as to how we manage this project from a financial perspective.

Membership support & Donations

We would like to increase interest in Eco Hacker Farm and have a supporting community that is able to keep working on our shared ideals.

Other sources of income

We will try to obtain funding from online programms that support open source projects, particularly for powerplant.


We would like to increase our payment for the uberspace server services to 10 Eur a month for a total of 120 Eur a year. Uberspace provides the service at a pay as much as you want basis and we would like to support this.

This brings up our Basic Costs annual expenditure to not more than 165 Eur a year.
