Help BK-based urban farmer Meg Paska raise funds to build an educational homestead at Seven Arrows, a retreat on the outskirts of NYC! Read more
This project was successfully funded on July 5, 2012.
Whoa! We're funded with 12 days left!
I'm sitting in Hayseed's right now sweating buckets. Carrot, our Flemish Giant rabbit is laying belly up against a frozen water bottle. We're both weary from the heat, but I'm feeling pretty exhilarated...and for good reason. In one day we managed to go from halfway to our goal to exceeding it. I've never felt at such a loss for words before. The kindness and generosity that many of your have shown to us and to this project is inspiring and I hope to god that we can prove ourselves to be deserving of it.
But it's not over yet! We have the chance to keep moving forward, make a little extra to do even more! This is an exciting prospect because even though $20k seems like a lot of money to some, once fees are taken and Uncle Sam gets his cut it's really just enough to get the skeleton of the farm in place...with a little scrappiness and help from friends and salvage yards. We hope that you will continue to spread the word so that we can make The Homestead at Seven Arrows an even more grand and special place than we had envisioned.
Again, thank you from the pit of our stomachs and the bottom of our swelling hearts. Thank you Thank you THANK YOU! We will work hard to do your generosity justice.
