COMMUNITY INCLUSION THROUGH FOOD

Food Harvest is based on Best Food Garden, a successful community project in Inverell.  With the leadership of Danny, we will replicate and build on the success of Best Food Garden here on the Sunshine Coast.  We have the land in West Woombye ready to grow food and share it with the community.  Food Harvest is an emerging social enterprise putting food and community health and wellbeing at its centre.

About us

Food Harvest is seeded from the experience Danny had in creating Best Food Garden in Inverell and Helen who founded Spare Harvest.  Food Harvest is community inclusion initiative building on the success of Best Food Garden and Spare Harvest.

The BEST Food Garden,  a social enterprise, facilitated the participation and engagement in meaningful activities for disadvantaged people, particularly those with a disability and the long term unemployed. The BEST Food Garden continues to promote and develop community collaboration and social inclusion.

Spare Harvest, a social enterprise, was a web based marketplace for communities to connect and share what they had spare in their gardens and kitchens.  Spare Harvest existed to reduce waste, share the abundance and build strong resilience communities.,

WHAT IS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE?

Social Enterprises are like other businesses, but exist specifically to make the world a better place.  There are over 12,000 social enterprises in Australia making a difference by caring for the environment, providing services for the vulnerable, helping people access decent work and lead in community-lead innovation.  These amazing enterprises are creating over 200,000 jobs and making an economic impact to the value of $21 billion per year.
