YOUR CONNECTION TO FRESH, LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCE.
COMMUNITIES ARE BECOMING MORE CONCERNED ABOUT WHERE FRESH FOODS ARE COMING FROM AND HOW THEY'RE PRODUCED. WE'RE AIMING TO CONNECT COMMUNITIES WITH FRESH LOCAL PRODUCE THROUGH NEIGHBOURHOOD GARDENS.
Edible Yards embodies collaborative consumption in it's most basic form - sharing home grown, fresh produce.
The problem: Oranges from America, spinach from China and tomatoes from Italy. Just those three things alone would total thousands of km travelled with impact from refrigeration, fuel and logistics. Unsustainably high food miles resulting from a lack of education around seasonal eating and support for the industry.
A solution: A platform to share, swap or sell homegrown produce.

ONE HIVE HONEY
BECAUSE IT'S THE BACKYARD BEEKEEPERS BOOSTING OUR ECOSYSTEM.
Why are bees so important?
Bees pollinate a third of everything we eat and play a vital role in sustaining the planet’s ecosystems.
Around 84% of crops grown for human consumption need bees and other insects to pollinate them to increase their yields and quality.
Without them, we've got about 4 years left.
Initially One Hive Honey aimed to harvest a small amount to pay for the equipment through local market sales. However, no seasons harvest has ever made it to market. After stocking up all of the cupboards of the owners relatives, family friends, colleagues and a few other ad hoc requests there is rarely a drop left.
