Kale, collards, & onions oh my!

Comment

Good work folks! We have raised $226 since yesterday when we sent out the last post, way to help spread the word!

Were you folks able to email 3 of your friends and encourage them to donate? If you convinced one of your friends to donate, let us know below in the comment box! Truck Farm supporters love hearing about the successes of our friends :)

Its beautiful weather here in Chicago, perfect for spending in the garden. Truck Farmers are taking advantage by planting in our community garden plot- kale, collards, & onions YUM!

Happy farming everyone!

Update #2

20% Funded!

Comment

Wow Truck Farm supporters, we are 20% funded in less than a week- good work!

However, this is the time we need your support more than ever. Truck Farm has reached out to people in our networks, but we need you to pass this on to your networks!

If you could pass this project on to 3 friends and tell them why you chose to support us, we will have the best chance of reaching our goal. Remember, if we don't reach our $4K goal, we won't get any of the money. We need this money to stay on the road and reach our goal of visiting 3,000 children, help us get there!

Thank you so much to everyone who has pledged, we wouldn't have gotten this far without you!

Happy farming, Farmer Sydney & Truck Farm team.

PS- check out Petunia's new paint job. Still a work in progress, but its coming along!

Update #1

We've launched!

Comment

Howdy Truck Farm Enthusiasts,

We Truck Farmers are very excited to have finally launched our Kickstarter campaign!

Not only did we launch our Kickstarter campaign this week, Monday was Truck Farm's 2012 Tour kickoff. We visited two elementary schools & the kids loved knowing that the seeds they planted in the truck would be seen by thousands of other kids throughout the tour.

Help us plant more seeds and build our hoop house, encourage 3 of your friends to back our campaign!

If we get 40 donations per week of $25, we will reach our $4,000 goal.

Love and peas, Farmer Sydney
