Harvest Bounty Giveaway - Enter to win $100 gift card!

Freeya makes it easy to share your fall harvest with your community!

Harvest Season is Here!

Got an overflowing garden or basket of fresh produce? Why not spread the love and reduce food waste by sharing your harvest bounty with your neighbors?

It's a beautiful way to spread the abundance of homegrown goodness, whether it's freshly picked vegetables, a basket of apples, or a jar of homemade preserves. By sharing the fruits of your labor, you not only reduce food waste but also foster a sense of unity, generosity, and gratitude among neighbors.

So, as the harvest season unfolds, consider using Freeya to share the wealth of your garden!

When you use Freeya to post your your Harvest Bounty (or any item) over the weekend, you could pocket $100. Yes, you read that right!

Apples, carrots, and onions, OH MY! Share the wealth of your garden this weekend and be entered to win $100.

Don't have produce to share? No worries! You'll still be entered to win with any Freeya posts you make during the giveaway period, this weekend from 10/13 thru 10/15. See official rules for details.

Freeya for small biz!

Last week, we had the pleasure of partnering up with Courtney of @pnwrefurbished . Did you catch her incredible desk flip? Courtney is the ultimate small business owner, using Freeya to find FREE furniture to restore and then sell.

If you're a fellow small business owner or side-hustler, give Freeya a whirl. Find the perfect office furniture or clear out excess inventory with ease! And, if you're a furniture flipper like Courtney, be sure to set your alerts to snag those gems as soon as they hit the app.

🤩 Before and After! 🤩

Neighborhood Spotlight!

Meet our fantastic friends, The Portland Fruit Tree Project

Portland Fruit Tree Project is a grassroots non-profit gleaning organization dedicated to providing a community-based solution to access healthy food and the benefits of trees.

They have a diverse range of programs and services all committed to empowering neighbors to share in the harvest and care of urban fruit trees, prevent food waste, build knowledge, and create sustainable ways to enjoy locally-grown food.

Want to get involved?

  • Volunteer at a harvest party! Check out their calendar to find a time that works for you.
  • Get help with your own fruit trees by utilizing their tree care services . They have lots of options so you can choose what's best for your situation.
  • Swing by their fruit fridge in NE Portland to donate your excess harvest (after you post some on Freeya this weekend ;)) for distribution to partner organizations. H ere is some great information and resources to help guide you through harvesting your fruit.
  • Mark your calendar for Thursday, 10/26 because the World's Largest CharFruitTree Board Fundraiser is coming to Portland—where and when else can you spend an evening grazing on a 500ft food board!? You can even commemorate your love of the harvest and giant charcuterie with a flash tattoo by @maddacide, @peggypantz, and @samislings! Go on and grab yourself a ticket here!
