Our Mission Text

THE JOY OF SHARING IS OUR PASSION

Spare Harvest is a movement of like-minded people who relish and practice the value of living more sustainably.

That can be anything like connecting together to source eggs from the backyard down the road, buy vegies from the next suburb or sharing gardening equipment with neighbours.

What us at Spare Harvest, and our community, have in common, is our passion to reduce the world’s consumerism and wastage by connecting together. Whether it’s to share, swap, sell, and source food and garden items which are spare, we can all do it easily using Spare Harvest.

WE'RE RE-ENERGISING COMMUNITY SPIRIT
WITH CONNECTIONS

Remember a time when we knew our neighbours and we shared what was harvested from each other’s gardens? Spare sweet juicy fruit, crispy vegetables, freshly laid eggs, plant cuttings and seedlings, were all happily passed around or swapped.

Here at Spare Harvest, part of our goal is for people like you to connect and enhance your local community.

Our community is the perfect spot for it. You’ll find someone who thinks just like you. The common ground you share will have you chatting and sharing in your area.

Before you know it, a friendlier local community is blooming. Its friendly connections are bringing you all closer together over your passion of great tasting food, gardening and the joy of sharing resources.

AN ENTERPRISE WITH PURPOSE

Spare Harvest is a profit for purpose enterprise. That means, we apply commercial strategies to generate revenue to reinvest in our community and improve the environment’s well-being.

These new and growing types of businesses are the businesses of the future.  Profit will no longer be the single purpose of a business, its purpose will be to solve some of the world’s challenging problems and be good citizens of the world.  A business that values the triple bottom line and all stakeholders.

triple bottom line

The United Nations recognized that we need to work together to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems so the Sustainability Development Goals was born in 2012 and adopted by all UN Member States in 2015.  They are a universal call to protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

Everyone is needed to reach these ambitious targets.  Spare Harvest is a tool that you can use to positively contribute to several of the goals.
