Let’s buy the Food Connect Shed!

A chance for our community to become co-owners of their local food hub.

You’ve probably already heard the story. When Robert lost his family’s farm twenty years ago, it set him on a mission to create a fairer food system. Food Connect is the realisation of that search, and after 13 years connecting city folk with their growers, we believe the next step is for the community to own the infrastructure that supports our local food system, and share in the risks and rewards.

We’re aiming to raise between $2 – $4 million to buy and retrofit the Shed.

Individuals from the general public in Australia can invest from as little as $500 up to $10,000 worth of shares ($1 per share) in Food Connect Shed Limited – a new company we’ve set up especially for our equity crowdfunding campaign. Sophisticated investors are invited to pledge more than $10,000 – please email contact@pledgeme.com.au It’s an exciting opportunity for a new era in community-ownership, and we’d love you to join us on our mission!

Please make sure to read the risk warning statement, offer document, and understand the Cooling-Off rights. Instructions on how to register to invest and pledge are here.
