      My wife and I were sorry to hear the hurricane and flooding wiped out all your plants. Maybe you could alter plans to make an elevated greenhouse after you pick up the pieces from this catastrophe. Good luck to you both.

      Hi, Brandon! Maw Maw Perkins and I are contributing to this effort because we think you are Awesome. I have also spread the word on Facebook and Google Plus. Good luck!

      Hi Marieta!

      Saw your update asking why we are choosing to back your efforts - here is what I posted on Facebook when I encouraged my friends and family to support you:

      "Just backed this project on Kickstarter - an organic farm looking to build a greenhouse one town over from where my parents live in Louisiana. Living there, I always struggled to find fresh organic produce, and I'm so happy to see that this farm is not only successful, but thriving. They have a waiting list! Help them grow and please consider backing this project - especially if you are a local!"

      My fiance' and I love to browse Kickstarter and contribute to different projects (usually under his account) but I just logged on to browse and when I saw that you were based in Folsom and what you were trying to do, I just knew that I wanted to help, even a little. I am a native New Orleans girl, raised in Covington - went to high school at SSA and college at SLU. I now live in Orange County, CA where it is much easier to find the great things that you are selling - but it wasn't that easy when I lived in Covington.

      Best of luck with your efforts - I can't wait to see how it turns out!

      this is very cool! you guys are right on track- love you!

    12. Creator Marieta Easley on July 2, 2012

      Thanks so much Daniel! It's so nice to have support from strangers who also care about local/small farming!

    13. Creator Daniel Semmens on July 2, 2012

      I'm so glad to see you doing this. I found your kickstarter by chance, but I'm very interested in local and small farming. I hope that you reach your goal, not only to build your greenhouse, but also to be able to deliver more food to more people, it makes a difference.

      I just signed up for your e-newsletter. I live far away, but I'd love to hear updates about how your farm progresses. Good luck!

    14. Creator Hamish Hughes on July 1, 2012

      What a great idea guys. So glad I can contribute! We're hoping to come over to the US for a trip sometime next year, so maybe we will get a chance to come see the greenhouse in action!

    15. Creator Asheville Urban Farms on July 1, 2012

      Way to follow your dreams, so happy to be a part

    16. Creator Marieta Easley on June 30, 2012
