Update #5

Book Update

1 comment

Hi All,

We're almost there! We just received the PDF copy of the almost-finalized book. We expect to have the final edits submitted by Monday, and the printed copies of the book shortly after that. Because of the delay, we will be emailing a PDF of chapters 1-3 to all donors who are to receive the book as a gift. These chapters cover getting your garden started in the spring, and so should hopefully be helpful for you in getting started.

We apologize for the delay, and hope the PDF shows how much time and hard work were able to go in to this book, all because of your donations! Please let us know if you do not receive the email for some reason. 

Regards,

Jessie Banhazl, CEO

p.s: We know there are likely typos, as well as some of the images are going to be swapped out, so please excuse any errors while you are reading, and don't worry about letting us know.  We have a professional copywriter working on it this week.


Update #4

Book Completion Update!

1 comment

Hello Wonderful Kickstarter Donors, 

We are finally approaching the completion of the book! All of the content is currently with the publisher, who is finishing up the layout, and then the printing. We expect to have the box of books to be distributed in-hand by April 1st, and mailed out immediately after to anyone whose donation gift was a copy of "The Urban Bounty: How to Grow Fresh Food, Anywhere". We can't wait to send you the finished product!

We've become aware that some of you did not recieve your gift, be it a t-shirt or seed kit. We would love to send you what we owe you, please email Jessie@gcgboston.com if you have not recieved your gift, and we will get it in the mail ASAP.

Thank you for your support, we're extremely excited to be nearing the end of this lengthy process, and to show you what your donation has helped us achieve. 

Regards,

Jessie Banhazl

CEO, Green City Growers
