Hello Kickstarter Backers!
Things are growing well on the farm. We had a wonderful workday this Saturday— transplanting seedlings and building a raised bed.
The neighborhood was also abuzz with activity with Art on the Porch and the Annual Run For Our Heroes race. We just love being part of this community!
One of our volunteers had a brilliant idea to repurpose the discarded water cups from the race as containers for our tender transplants. Alright!
We had a slight delay getting started on your rewards, but we want to let you know they are coming soon, and they are turning out beautifully!
Here is one of our artists, Chelsea, hard at work on the vegetable row markers:
- Wedging clay—getting rid of air bubbles
- Feeding wedged clay through the slab roller
- Cutting the markers
- Stamping close-up
- Working hard!
Next steps: finish drying, fire, glaze with beautiful color, and fire again!
Other talented local artists are creating the rest of the rewards. We will keep you posted, send you progress pics, and get the final versions to you as soon as possible!
Lastly, we’ve been thinking of you and your generosity as our farm takes shape. We want to give you our heartfelt thanks for backing us and the urban farm movement. It is because of you that ideas like this succeed.

Many thanks, and we’ll be in touch again very soon!
