Helen Andrew Founder of Spare Harvest

Our Story

Like most grassroots movements it starts with one person and a simple problem: too many mandarins. In moving to acreage on the Sunshine Coast, Helen was thrilled by the abundance of fruit trees in her back garden. But when harvest time came and she had too many mandarins, despite trying to give them away, she ended up having to bury them.
