Helen Andrew

In this episode of the podcast I sat down with Helen Andrew of Spare Harvest. Spare Harvest is all about wasting less and sharing more. We covered a lot in this episode including Pitching to over 100 people, pushing kids off cliffs and the importance of a good night's rest. I had a bunch of fun chatting with Helen and I hope you enjoy the listen.
