The week has ended, Wednesday has come and gone, which means our Kickstarter campaign is more than half way over. Or has it only half-begun?
Whether you're an optimist, pessimist, pragmatist, or dreamer we certainly appreciate having you along for the ride. And because of your relentless enthusiasm we've already raised more than $5,000!
However, despite all the success we've had we're not the type to rest on our laurels. While you've been busy helping us spread the word we've been busting our humps all the while. The website mockups are nearly complete (see below) and we've been collaborating on some new rewards with chefs and restauranteurs that will knock your socks off!
We've also been featured in the Huffington Post!
"What if locating and buying locally-grown produce direct from its source in Chicago was as easy as Google searching for the nearest BYOB? What if the city's urban gardeners were able to join a social-network-meets-online-marketplace that would allow them to connect with both customers and other gardeners?"
I don't know the answers to those questions but I'm confident our team will amaze you, and with your help we'll have that opportunity soon enough.
