We’re holding a fundraiser!



If you would like to support our startup fundraiser please click here to make a donation.

In order to be transparent about what money we are asking for and why, we have outlined further details below.

Most farms rely on inherited wealth, land and resources to get established. Structural discrimination and inequity are barriers to folks getting into farming. We have been gifted some access to land but limited access to startup money, machinery & materials.

There are 2 levels of fundraising we are aiming to achieve.

The first are basic items we need to get going such as basic hand tools, irrigation propagation equipment etc. to a total of $18679.
The second level are items that would make our lives much easier including minimising the time and toll farming takes on our bodies to a total of $28112.

It would be incredible if we could fund-raise a grand total of $46791
