The Giving Harvest is a Perth based initiative that will be harvesting untended fruit and nut trees on private and public property. The harvests will be distributed to organizations in the area that are working towards food security and more, such as The Table, with a percentage distributed to the harvesters and the property owners. Young fruit trees will be available for sale later in the season as part of expanding the edible fruits available locally. Volunteers most welcome.

A gift circle is an open circle where people come to help each other, and share their needs and services. People share their services and help as a gift, without expectation of anything in return. The purpose of a gift circle is to allow people to help each other and to create a sense of community. And to further the gift economy.
