One Week to Go!
Hello, fair backers,
April showers bring May flowers, and your kickstarting pledges will bring flowers, vegetables, honey, and more delicious treats. The support is tremendous. We're 2/3 of the way to reaching funding, and 2/3 of the time has passed. Let's keep it up!! A small army of facebookers "Like" us, and if each of you can get $10 more to the cause, through a friend, secret admirer, or some well placed blog post, we'll be in the clear, reaching our goal of $8800 for us to build out 1577's ground floor into a top-notch natural retail environment.
The Providence Journal featured us on page A3 Monday morning, a link to that article is this: http://www.projo.com/news/content/FERTILE_UNDERGROUND_WESTBROADWAY_04-11-11_B7N_v26.193dc44.html . Truly well-written article, I thank Paul Grimaldi for doing a great job representing us in such fine fashion. More intelligent fuel for the fire!
We are so appreciative of everyone who has reached out to us with kickstart pledges and other offers of help. We've come a long way in our own explorations of the current West End food environment. Seeds are being planted, and there's room for many more. With the tremendous kickstart support, this vision for localized food access in Providence may begin to break the surface, pushing toward the sun and sending out leaves to soak in that wonderful chlorophyll. We'll keep you in the know, as we prepare for the next steps in bringing this through to fruition.
I thank you again, deeply, and wish a wonderful Spring for us all!
