Some members are using our community to find what they need by creating a ‘wanted’ listing.  Don’t let those idle items in your kitchen and garden go to waste, when someone else will use them.

Crowdfunding Spare Harvest

Crowdfund Us

Spare Harvest has been our founder’s vision from the day she buried 100’s mandarins.  To make she vision a reality, Helen has and continue to personally fund the development and maintenance of all aspects of Spare Harvest.  After encouragement from our community, we looked into the Patreon website.  Patreon makes it easy for people to make ongoing donations to causes and people they want to support.  After investigating, we decided we would not use Patreon due to its fees, so we develop our own way for people to support us financially.

We would like to invite you to make a contribution to help keep Spare Harvest growing so we can increase our impact and invest back in our community.  Your contribution would be used to pay for the following costs; domain and hosting, development and maintenance.  And 10% of your contribution would be used to seed invest in member initiatives.  We have many members wanting to create their own enterprises and make their own contribution to making their community a better place.

Volunteer Time

If you are unable to support us with a donation, maybe you could share your time.  We need people with various skills to help us grow.  We are looking for volunteers to help in the following ways:

Community Connectors – we are looking for people who would like to see a thriving Spare Harvest in their local community.  We would support you as you visit community gardens, garden clubs and other groups to introduce and share Spare Harvest.  Engage with your community while promoting Spare Harvest.

Guest Bloggers – we would welcome anyone interested in writing a guest blog that we could publish to our community.  The topics we are interested in are; living sustainably, living zero waste, using medicinal herbs, community connecting, social capital, the environment and anything you would like to propose.

Marketing – if you have skills in marketing, web design, graphic design, SEO or data analytics we would love to work with you.  You are currently a team of two volunteers, and we don’t have all the skills we need to do it all.  We would love you to join our team and would be grateful for any support that you can provide

Connect with us if you would like to discuss any opportunities.
