Harvest Roots Inc. is a community driven, not-for-profit incorporated association formed to rehabilitate and reforest degraded pastureland, farmland, roadways and waterways.
We aim to educate, involve and inspire the community, advocating the importance of regenerative agriculture and reforestation for our future.
Our purpose is to make it simple for everyone to help the environment.
R O O T S stemmed from a mutual desire to begin a regeneration project with Harvest as the community platform.
Tristan, co-owner of Harvest Newrybar, and Joe, Harvest's sustainability champion, brainstormed how to begin growing native Australian trees with a focus on native foods in the area.
Soon, the two introduced and implemented the 'buy one get one tree' campaign as way to generate funds for purchasing seeds and seedlings for future planting.
Soon after, Kelsey proposed the idea of expanding Harvest's environmental influence to directly involve the community, primarily using events at Harvest to create a more hopeful narrative around the subject of environmental activism and climate change.
