Thank you so much for your support and pledge to the Mississippi Mobile Farm on Wheels Project via Kickstarter. The boys had a successful test trip around the country, presenting on sustainable energy and renewable resources to schools and summer camps along the way, and are now back in Mississippi. Unfortunately, though we did raise almost $3,000 we did not reach our set goal and the way Kickstarter works is that if we do not raise all of it, we get none of it.
As you know, every little bit makes a big difference and now that the bus has made it back from its cross-country trip running on solar power and waste vegetable oil we are anxious to move forward with Phase II (which is to transform it to a mobile farm by installing a greenhouse roof, rainwater catchment system, indoor garden and more!). We sincerely hope that you would consider sending a check for the amount that you initially pledged to the Gaining Ground Sustainability Institute of Mississippi (see address below). We are a non-profit so all donations will be tax-deductible.
Once completed, the bus will benefit children and students all over Mississippi by providing an opportunity to see and experience models of sustainability, learn about growing/raising their own food and hopefully inspire the next generation to rethink their relationship with and obligation toward caring for our shared environment.
