      I'm really happy about the garden but I'm getting upset about not getting any of my rewards and basically no communication about them either. I've seen message after message about them being delayed with the last saying they should be here in mid April, well now it's over a month later and essentially no communication. I would love to continue to support you and the projects you endeavor towards, but this is unacceptable.

      New shirts are being mailed, keep a watch on your mailbox.

      Hey guys, any new word on the shirts? Hope everything is going well, just thought I would check in.

    8. Tyson Heuring on April 14, 2013

      Any new updates on the shirts and postcards?

      Hello Everyone.

      First a little garden news. The garden is fully planned out, we have blueprints, and we are just waiting on some paperwork to start construction. We know its been a long wait and we are really excited for the day that we can finally start to plant our vegetables, which hopefully will be very soon.

      We keep planning on a date, and it turns out there always seems to be more paperwork to fill out.

      We are working on a short video right now with a surprise guest narrator to give you a little peak of our area.

      News about the shirts:

      On Wednesday of next week, UPS is bringing our new shipment for everything but the Michigan Hoodies and the Rising Helmet shirts. Those two are overprint styles and taking a little longer for the reprint, but should be here within two weeks we hope.


      Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it up to Michigan for the Spring Scrimage game because I am going to be down here in Pahokee at a community event explaining to people about our #EATING garden. We have fliers and bands and want to let people know what we are doing and sign up to be apart of our project.

      At the game, we did want to set up and give out some bands and fliers so that Michigan people who don't know about our #EATING project or our backers can come by (email us if you are waiting on an order you would like to pick up at the Spring Scrimmage). Vincent Smith and I will be in Pahokee doing the same thing that Saturday so we think its a good way to connect our communities.

      So if you have any suggestions on where we should be or how we can go about that or want to host us for a few hours, please shoot us a message.

      Thanks everyone for being so patient, its getting more exciting as everything is getting sorted out,

      TAE ODOMS and RHH

      Hi Tae. I know the last update mentioned that the shirts were running behind. I had ordered the gym shorts, and I just wanted to know if those were behind as well. Not trying to be pushy on it and it's totally fine if they haven't been shipped, but I have been away from home for the past couple of weeks so if I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss them, sometimes USPS just leaves them on the porch and they can get stolen...

      Sounds like you are off to a great start with the garden, so keep it up!

    21. Tyson Heuring on December 23, 2012

      Did people submit some plant names yet? If so, you should post some teasers for us. Also, when do the postcards go out? My mail lady is a state fan, she might destroy it! #eating

    22. hopeforpahokee 2-time creator on December 16, 2012

      We are working as fast as we can on the shirts, our goal is before Christmas. Thanks for your patience, we know it can be frustrating and we wanted them earlier too but it has taken longer then we expected.

      Great job Tae. Many ask the question " what is the definition of a Michigan Man". You young man are a true Michigan Man. Graduate from Michigan and the first thing you do is give back to your home town. What a great example you are for our kids. Go Blue!

      This is such a great concept! It will help people take more pride in their community, give them something to nurture, and teach young people the importance of eating healthy food. I have no doubt this garden would be something that creates a life changing, positive experience for members of the Pahokee community. Good luck to you! If there are opportunities to volunteer time to get this thing built, I would be interested in helping out.

      If you want more than one reward, email us through kickstarter that you want a combination of items and list which items you want and update your previous pledge to the new total.

      Way to go Tay! Proud to see you doing good things. I'm definitely in to support you on this.
