We fell short of the $25,000 goal we were seeking for our innovative root cellar project but a lot of good education came of the process. There are many more people out there who understand that it’s possible for our community to feed itself and that if we invest in projects like this it can make a positive impact in our community.
In the last month, 2500 people visited the Kickstarter page and watched the informative video, and about 50 actually came to the farm to see construction in progress last Saturday.
As Kickstarter is an all or nothing fundraising website, the farm will not receive any of the funds pledged. However, our plan going forward is to get “back to basics” and ask folks who pledged on the Kickstarter site to simply donate to the farm directly instead. The silver lining is that being outside of the Kickstarter process eliminates some fees, so your donations actually go a little bit farther when they go directly to the farm.
Two ways to donate:
1) Send a check made out to “Food Farm” to 2612 County Road 1, Wrenshall, 55797
2) Send your donation electronically by clicking the donate button below!
