Our crowd-funding campaign, hosted on ioby.org, ends this SATURDAY JUNE 15th at MIDNIGHT!
We are trying to raise $4,000 to support five youth participants with need-based stipends.
With your support, each participant will dedicate 25 hours per week to cultivating community and school gardens in Hartford that will engage over 300 people in urban agriculture. For 15 hours per week, they will participate in workshops lead by local experts to learn how to cook, bake, grow their own food in an urban space, preserve harvests, and live sustainably in the city. Our team will organize community events such as potlucks, elementary school cooking classes, and free farm stands to establish the gardens as open and vibrant community spaces. Any contribution you can make, big or small, will help support four participants to commit to the program full time this summer!
We have raised over $24,000 this year to invest in the infrastructure of our community and school gardens, rent a program space, provide engaging workshops, and support our team with need-based stipends. We are very close to raising our total budget goal, and we are relying on our community and this crowd-funding campaign to make it happen! Can you help us reach our $4,000 goal by Saturday so we can fully fund or program?
Let the countdown begin! If we reach our $4,000 goal by Saturday we will be as happy as these kindergarteners eating lettuce!
