The SparkDrop Story

Sparked from a conversation overheard at her parent’s kitchen table after a night of rain, Sarah Armstrong developed the SparkDrop app.

A digital platform to store rainfall data and share it with the community.

I was out at my parents’ property in Goolgowi and it had just rained during the night. Dad was doing his usual rain chat;

“Woc rang me this morning and said they had 30ml, but Wal down the road said he had 33ml. Something’s going on here, someone’s telling lies…”

I thought why isn’t there an app where farmers can have their own little profiles and record their rainfall? Then everyone can just click on it and see it.

Rainfall varies. Town to town, farm to farm, paddock to paddock. The rainfall measurement that most common apps have is generally from one rain gauge at the airport, so it’s not accurate in rural Australia at all.

From here SparkDrop was born.

Don "Sparky" Armstrong

Sarah's Grandfather - The Inspiration for our Name

Sarah’s father, his father Sparky and his father before him have been thriving and surviving in farming for over 100 years in Australia.

The land has been Sarah’s whole upbringing. 

“When I had the idea for SparkDrop I knew it was a way to continue my family’s legacy and share my love for the land.”

Some days when the game is tough,
I’ll watch the setting sun,
and I’ll think about Don “Sparky” Armstrong,
Who lived ten lives in one.

Poem by Ron Pollard, 2005
