I am reaching out!
This is my first Kickstarter campaign and coincidentally it happened during bad timing... Or not?
The original idea was to create a series of Workshops for the whole family with the emphasis on children (and their parents) learning and practicing Compost making, Tree guild planting, Cob structures building, Fermenting, Chicken raising, Tea making etc.
For the folks who live far from Midpines, California I had option to just donate to the tree planting and other supplies. Due to the quarantine I had to change from physically attending the workshop to only virtually supporting, with possibility to visit when the possibility arrives. I still plan to do educational materials about the topics above as well as info about trees and plants I have available for "adoption".
We had good response and some of the long distance folks were happy to "adopt a tree" and be part of the "greening the California Desert" so to say, but now with about 10 hours left to go we still lack some support to be fully successful!!!
If you feel you can stretch a little and extend your helpful hand, we would be truly grateful and over this Spring and Fall plant over 1000 perennial plants (Trees, Soft-fruit, Herbs, Natives, Drought tolerants, and more!)
Please check the project out and even if you can just share it among your friends, that might be helpful!
Thank you so much for considering!
