Founded in 2012 by two foodies in Australia, the RipeNearMe start-up is all about getting consumers connected with growers in their local cities, towns and neighborhoods in an effort to reduce food waste, increase the quality and quantity of urban and sustainably grown foods and address food insecurity.

So if you’ve got an abundance of homegrown food you’d like to sell, swap or share or you’re looking to buy some locally-grown goodies in your neighborhood, RipeNear.Me can help.
