We, revolutionary urban vegetable growers in the Twin Cities, need to convert 10 new vacant lots into vibrant, productive micro-farms.
347 backers pledged $15,908 to help bring this project to life.

Help us reach $20K for our CoolBot Box Truck

Posted by Stones Throw Urban Farm (Creator)

Hello friends!

We are sooo close to reaching our goal of $15K, and with 4 days left it seems well within reach.  Soon, we will be out tilling, spreading compost, and planting in St. Paul!

However, a new project funding opportunity has come up over the last few days that we would like to share with you, our supporters.  If we can raise another $5,000 before Friday afternoon, this potential project could become a reality!  An old farm is looking to sell a box truck (kind of like a moving truck for vegetables) along with a CoolBot system (a refrigeration system for veggies that runs off a portable AC unit).  We, the intuitive farmers of Stone's Throw, would like to put the two together to create a mobile cold storage unit, perfect for the versatile nature of urban farming.  Our farm would also love to use renewable energy, such as solar, to power the system.  

The more we can raise over the next few days, the closer we will be to turning this new project into another urban farming innovation.  Even if everyone of our backers just pledged to contribute another $5, we'd be more than 1/3 of a way to our new goal!  Then recruit a friend to pledge $10, and we'd be there!  Thank you for the outpouring of support and excitement so far, we are humbled by your belief in a more sustainable food system.

      Will you need volunteers to help once you start planting because I might be interested. I'm working full-time right now...but I will be cutting back to part time in May and would have some extra time.
