WELCOME TO A COMMUNITY THAT
We are living in uncertain times but what is certain is that we need to connect and support each other. Covid-19 has changed our lives. Now is the most important time in history to connect and share what we have spare.
We need to come together as a community and share idle, dormant and spare food, time and home and garden gear. While our roots are embedded in food and a mission to build a more resilient local food system, we don’t want you to waste anything you have spare.
We have seen those distressing images of people panic buying and hoarding and there will be kitchens across the world who will have more than they need. This is not the time to be self-sufficient and self-focussed. It’s a time for showing loving concern to our neighbours, friends and community so we can come through this with resilience and good health.
Let’s open up our homes and gardens; and our hearts to share what we can with our community.
SPARE HARVEST FOR INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES
Spare stuff at home? A bumper herb garden or food harvest? An overflowing pantry or fridge? Tools and equipment sitting idle? Want to grow your own food and looking for plants and seeds? Maybe you have some time to offer and help.
Or just eager to connect with people who think like you do.
You’re in the right spot.
It starts with have spare home and garden gear and connecting with others who want it. And it happens in our online marketplace.
Together we can create a more just and equitable local support system where everyone can give and receive.
Covid19 has changed the way we do business but that does not mean you can’t do business.
We want to help.
If you have a food or garden business then we would like to invite you to create a free listing in our business directory while we navigate the Covid19 pandemic.
Let us know you are open for business so we can support you. Do you have any spare stock?
We are in this together, we want to connect you with our community through our online directory for food and garden businesses.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
IT'S ALL ABOUT CONNECTIONS
The greatest joy about sharing is giving and receiving. Spare Harvest brings people together by connecting them through our marketplace and directory, it just goes from there.
SPARE HARVEST FOR EMPLOYERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
Business culture is shifting. There’s a need more than ever at the moment future-focussed businesses are prioritising ‘shared value’ strategies. Consumers and future employees are choosing businesses who openly promote their community and environmental initiatives. They want to work for and buy from businesses who give back.
Spare Harvest is perfect for implementing your shared value strategies. Our Workplace Connect initiative encourages your staff to connect regardless of department or title. Creating personal and meaningful connections that are socially and environmentally sustainable.
Are you committed to enhancing the social, environmental and economic wellbeing of your residents and community? Do you want to promote opportunities for your community to connect and have a sense of belonging and support?
Are you looking for ways to engage your diverse community that’s inclusive and resilient?
Spare Harvest offers councils a community engagement tool that builds resilience both in good and bad times. Covid-19 has placed residents under additional pressure, struggling to feel a sense of connection while we practise physical distancing.
