News about the garden and rewards

Posted by hopeforpahokee (Creator)

Hello everyone.

We wanted to check in and let you know that the garden is hopefully being installed in mid March.  We are doing the last of the paperwork that we need to make everything in line to put in the garden and start work.  We have all the plans and are putting together the volunteers and our schedule and working on a video.   

What we have done with our kickstarter really means a lot to a lot of people and has touched a lot of people.  Now Vince is doing a kickstarter too because he felt inspired by what we are accomplishing with #EATING and he chose to make signs for the plots and plants that you all chose for the garden.  It is called C2C (community to community) Vincent Smith teaches painting and we wanted to continue connecting the wolverine community with the Pahokee Community.  It is really amazing to us what we have been able to do so far and we thought it would be a good way to bring some of the kids from Pahokee to connect with the garden and see that they can accomplish things too if they work at it.

About the rewards.  We are still waiting on our reorder.  We sent out as much as we could and we are apologize its been taking so long.  There are a lot of factors that are out of our control and we really wanted everything to be here a long time ago but sometimes things don't work out as planned and we are working on it as fast as we can.  There is only two of us so we would like to thank you for your patience and if you got the wrong size please email us.  We are new to this whole process and not everything is going to be perfect the first time around but we can work on it.  We are hoping to have everything out by the end of March/ early April.  We ran into a few hang ups along the way but have gotten everything straightened out and are back on track.  We really wanted things to be different and we have learned so the next time we do this we can have everything out on time.

      Thanks for these updates. Will definitely support Vincent's project as well. It's great to see you both doing such positive things after UM.
