Help us grow

We teach our little farmers that we each have two hands, one for giving and one for receiving. Please donate to support our work in the community. All donations, big or small, are gratefully received.  Our project is completely reliant on the gifting and generosity of others that share our vision of communities that grow their own solutions.


Donate goods and materials

We’re big on sustainability and the reuse of unwanted items, so get in touch if we can give new life to something you no longer need.

We always welcome donations of the following:

  • Garden tools
  • Seeds and seedlings
  • Fresh local produce - if you’ve got a surplus or are willing to grow a crop to donate
  • Quality kitchen equipment
  • Quality wools and knitting needles
  • Knitted squares for our children’s blankets
  • Knitted clothing and accessories
  • Quality fabrics, sewing machines and equipment
  • Bicycles in all sizes (in good working condition)
  • Good quality helmets and bike accessories

Got something to offer that’s not on the list? Contact our Project Coordinator, Julia Milne: / 027 372 3385


Regular giving

Regular giving is vital for our ongoing growth, as it means we know our income and can plan our spending. Regular giving can be set up through our Givealittle page. There are no fees taken and you get a receipt for tax credit purposes.

If you’re able to give regularly, even in small amounts, please set up an automatic payment to our Kiwibank bank account: 38-9015-0629515-07, or complete this form and take it to your own bank.

Payroll giving is another option for donating regularly. Money is taken straight from your salary with tax credits applied immediately each time you’re paid. Ask your employer if they offer this service, or consult the IRD website for details of the payroll giving scheme.


One-off donations

One-off donations can be made with a credit card through our Givealittle page. There are no fees taken and you get a receipt for tax credit purposes.

We’re also happy to receive donations straight into our Kiwibank bank account: 38-9015-0629515-07.

Cheques can be made out to The Common Unity Project and posted to us:
Common Unity Project,        
P O Box 31026,
Lower Hutt 5040.
