Put your backyard or farm yard to work in the local food economy
At Alfrea we build local food economies by connecting people like you who have unused backyards or land, to people near you looking for space to grow their own food. Currently we are making these connections in communities in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Maryland. When you join us today, you not only help us grow these communities, but you will be ready to earn income for the upcoming growing season.
Here’s how it works
Join as an individual or business to post your land. An individual membership is $4.50 per month and a business membership is $15 per month and it includes a business listing and opportunities to post your events on the Alfrea community calendar. With either membership, you can cancel at any time.
Post your land
Once you are a member and signed in, just click on Post Listing in the top menu bar to get started. You decide the amount to charge monthly and include that price in your posting along with a photo, profile information about you and details about your space such as size, soil and whether it is bare ground or grass. Customers will be able to connect with you through the Alfrea website and choose your property.
Begin earning income
All transactions run through the Alfrea website, and your customer’s payments to you will be deposited directly into the account you listed when you signed up for your membership. There is an 18% fee per transaction for individual members and a 12% fee per transaction for business members. But this fee is deducted directly from your customer’s payment; there’s no direct charge to you or accounting that you need to track.
It's that easy. Let's get started!
