About this project
Amie is currently a harvester and does delivery for Baby Greens as well as works part time at an independent record store.
Amie's true passion lies in her love for the world, what we grow from it and the animals we nurture in it. Felt Heart Farm will encompass that love and very importantly, that message. Amie is a true artist of many forms. One is making felt art work by hand. The name Felt Heart comes from those pieces of art and the message behind her future farm. Living off the land and sharing what you produce is a lost way of life that is finding its way back into urban and outer communities. Amie foresees promoting this way of life and creating awareness in the community. Her chickens will be for eggs only. They will be treated with love, kindness and compassion that we like to show our friends and family.
The vision is there, but the funds are not. Not only does Amie want to start a Chicken farm and a floral greenhouse, but eventually an apiary as well. Starting small first though with great ambition!
So on Amie's birthday, Feb. 24th this ends.
Risks and challenges
Our first obstacle is getting our chicks in time to raise them with proper compassion and a sense of home. By Feb. 24th when this ends (Amie's Birthday) I hope to hit the ground running and get our coup set up first and foremost. With any extra funds we will set up the ground work for the Greenhouse.
Secondly, its getting the greenhouse set up properly by our own hands. By May when it warms a little we plan to build our greenhouse with our own hands and friends in the community.
I know its a risk donating to Amie when she does not know about the rewards she will be doing but trust me she will be overjoyed in making them!
I know we can accomplish this! Amie is the strongest woman i have ever met. She sticks to her goals and follows her heart. She has always lived by a line i have grown to love and understand (it took me a bit...)
"Do what you say and say what you mean!" We will not let anything get in our way. She will have her farm! Her vision will succeed! We are going to make a difference in this world and ourselves!
Not at all! She makes so many and will be THRILLED at giving them to people who care and support her dream.
