For the erasmus+ project *solid base* we conducted a survey where we asked *Solidarity based Food Systems* (SFS) which software is in use by them. Combined with prior research in the [*Free and Libre Open Source Software* (FLOSS)](https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/floss-and-foss.en.html) milieu, we can now give the following recommendations for dedicated CSA tools and for tools of more general applicability.
## General purpose office tools
If you start a SFS you don't need any special software. Just install the general purpose office suite [LibreOffice](https://www.libreoffice.org/) and the offline email client [Thunderbird](https://www.thunderbird.net). If you don't want any third party to spy through your windows, use a [Linux](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux) distribution, e.g. [Linux Mint](https://linuxmint.com/). Maybe arrange a mailinglist with your preferred [Librehoster](#providers-for-online-communication), and your ready to go!

In our survey we found no special solutions in productive use for the the three groups of SFS activity **crop planning, delivery planning and budget planning**. Either these are fulfilled with the dedicated CSA tools or they are done with **spreadsheets**.

Next to the conventional gdrive and dropbox the FLOSS [Nextcloud](https://nextcloud.com/) is used by several CSAs. It not only enables filesharing (very soon also with end-to-end rncryption) but also for sharing of contacts, calendars and tasks. Even online collaborative document editing and video calls work on well set up servers. You can sign up to some example providers directly on the [nextcloud website](https://nextcloud.com/providers/) but it is also a core offer of most libre hosters.
Some other environments might deserve a look:
Some other environments might deserve a look:
- [System D](https://www.system-d.org/) is a very fresh but ambitious project that currently combines a shared calendar, a tasks list, a forum and a *interactive map* with more modules planned
- [crabgrass](https://0xacab.org/riseuplabs/crabgrass) is a solid wiki with finegrained acces right control from the activist universe
