      Just wanted to say this is the first time I've ever donated actual money to just about anything. As a broke-ass graduate student AND museum professional, I decided that $30 was worth the DVD and the support of a free TV show. I'll just make a meal at home this week instead of eating out.

      As a native North Dakotan living in the Hudson Valley of NY, I appreciate the "tastes" of home you offer as well as the commitment to real food. Keep up the good work!

      Can I please get TWO postcards from the road? I would also enjoy them more if they include some swear words. Thanks!

      My pittance will come in on payday.

    15. Creator Sylvia Burgos Toftness on March 21, 2011

      So excited about your work and plans. Will link to your site whenever possible. My followers at http://www.bronxtobarn.com will love your work.

      Following Ben in Portlands lead even as a broke college student I threw in my $10. Guess I'll be drinking Keystone this weekend instead of Dogfish Head. Best of luck!

    17. Creator Grace Woo on March 21, 2011

      Love the idea! I wonder if you heard about a radio program called 'Good Food' on our station KCRW that may help to raise the profile & funding for your project. If you are interested, I can see if I can help tap into that.

      Daniel,
      I really enjoyed the year. Thanks! I am helping the cause and looking forward to watching your next project, If you venture to upstate NY/ Vermont, one person who I think you may enjoy is Jenna @ http://coldantlerfarm.blogspot.com/ I am sending her an email with a link back to you to see if I am right in that you may find some meeting each other beneficial. Best wishes, Favors...

    19. Creator Wayne Surber on March 18, 2011

      I wish I could spare more. Hopefully my friends will weigh in some muscle as well. Take care and talk soon. I sent a link to your 'suggest a story' to some friends and will forward it to a few more.

      Hi Daniel,
      I'm home from a year eating and learning about food in Europe (from your Mom, too!), and I'm anxious to catch up on all of The Perennial Plate that I've missed. Outstanding job! Wishing you much success on the road. When you're down in Atlanta, let me know. We've got plenty of room for you and your crew and would love to connect and help out. I, too, love the idea of you doing an organic or sustainable food dinner for a group of us if you have time so we can help boost your travel cost coffers. I'll send a separate email, too. Happy culinary exploration!

      Hey! I don't see a way to email you so I will leave this as a comment.
      I love what you are doing, My partner and I have a farm in Maryland just 45 min from DC please visit us when you are here, I will donate if I can, but I am in the middle of a major push to buy planting supplies to start a lavender farm and increase our food production as well. If we can help you in other ways or offer a place to stay, also I want to know if I can tag along for a day with you all when you do come to DC. I am trying to organize harvest dinners here on the farm as a way to raise funds while my other crops mature, let me know if you would like to host a dinner here to make extra $ along your way.
