      To the The Grenada Goat Dairy Team, it's with great pleasure and pride I support this project. I'd like to congratulate you on this educational and scientific program that has great potential for the country as a whole. Just one request. Instead of Michael Redhead, I would prefer the use of Skel or Skel Redhead. Thank you and keep up the great works, and you can always count on my support.

      Best regards to the Team and all supporters.

      Skel.

      Agree with last post that Belmont is inspirational. They really deserve our backing for the work they are doing and their new plans to extend into the education world. I wish them every success.

      As a sustainable agriculture activist and consultant in Jamaica, I was so impressed when I visited Belmont Estate two years ago. In fact I was so impressed that I decided to back this new venture as soon as I heard about it! Grenada is a place that has touched me, and I know that this project will be very impactful for small farmers on the island.

      I am backing this project, for the long term sustainability, of an agricultural project, which will help many people.This project is run by people who have faith in the project and the achievement which can be obtained from the project. The involvement of students interacting with qualified professionals, will insure a long term future.

      I am backing this project because I believe this concept (project) can be successfully replicated in many places including the USA. Educating our youth in food production is far more important than people realize. Also making the whole thing a partnership between the govt (at no cost), the people, and the schools helps to reinforce the lessons learned.

    8. Creator Trisha Mitchell on September 17, 2012

      I am backing this project because I support youth focused initiatives which inco-operate the diaspora particularly in the non-profit arena. This project highlights the synergies and resources available for local/diaspora partnerships and the role that they can play in sustainable economic development through job creation and in this case food security.

      An incredible project run by incredible people! This should be a model in any kind of development project - self-sustainable, self-sufficient, educational, community-run and driven, (and DELICIOUS :)! Help them become totally self-sustainable and expand...

      This is a brilliantly conceived project that merges economy with education, caring with community. Its potential is amazing. Hopefully the Grenada Goat Dairy's School Project will receive the $55,000 in pledges it needs to move forward. It would be a win/win situation for all concerned.

      I am backing this project because I believe that this intersection of food justice, building community, healthy living and investing in youth programs is so important!!

    12. Creator Pole Star Maritime on August 20, 2012

      We are backing this project because we know about it first hand and believe strongly that it should suceed. We have visited and worked with The Goat Dairy over the past 3 years in Grenada and from afar here in Maine USA.

      This project has long since achieved "Proof of Concept" The business model works and the benefits to the local community and economy are real and measurable. The concept of out reach to the local school, to provide real-time agricultural education in exchange for additonal milk production for cheese processing is a very worthy and acheivable goal.

      Please continue to contribute and push this effort forward during this Kickstarter and well beyond.

      Thank you for your support
