Two days of celebration to showcase top information and best practices in organic food farming, eco-building, and sustainable eco-living held at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage.
Greetings and welcome,
We are Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage, and we are about to change the world, again, with our 3rd annual Earth Harmony Festival. We're calling on all of you gorgeous people to make a financial contribution to our Kickstarter campaign here, but before you donate, please read and learn about us, our festival, and where your money is going and why!
This year's festival will be on October 4th and 5th. We'll be highlighting the importance of growing organic produce, using permaculture principles, planting heritage & heirloom crops, saving seeds, and preserving foods all in one of the worlds most well organized and progressive sustainable EcoVillages! Festival participants will experience a fully sustainable and agriculturally-based community of food activists in beautiful Southern Arizona.
Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage is a prototype micro-society that has been growing its own food, developing alternative green building techniques, and trying to take care of the Earth for more than 23 years as a nonprofit community-based organization, and now we are sharing our progress through our yearly festival!
We work diligently in our efforts to get this ideal lifestyle to the world. In every way we can we reach out to people who have a vision for a higher and healthier way of living together with each other, and in harmony with the land. This exciting two-day event is one of the best ways in which we can bring people together to share, learn, and have a great time all at once.
We've made the Earth Harmony Festival awesome for all-ages. With exciting activities for the whole family, including live music, local organic foods, arts & crafts booths, a Children's Village with pony rides, and many other fun and enjoyable activities; there are benefits for everyone. Also, did we mention we're hosting a camp ground as well? Get your tents ready!
After last year's successful Kickstarter campaign (thank you!), we are again asking for financial support with the 2014 Earth Harmony Festival so we can continue avoiding an entrance fee and meeting all the many demands involved in putting on a great festival. We look forward to sharing our passion for, and knowledge of, organic farming with everyone. Each person who learns how to plant a seed and reap the harvest takes a step toward a more sustainable future.
Funds donated to the kickstarter campaign will go to covering the costs of things like:
- Tables and chairs for seating and meals
- Obtaining permits
- Booths for showcasing arts and crafts
- Equipment rentals (sound, lighting, etc...)
- Port-O-Pottie rentals
- Flyers, advertising, and social media outreach
- Supporting the bands that play
- Setting up camping gear for our guests
- and all the little details that come up to make a festival more fun!

In a world that is quickly losing sight of the need to be united in our love for one another, our actions, and our humanity, we desperately need more creative ways to come together for greater cooperation, communication, and compassion. This is a cause that we are all fighting for, and one of the many reasons to contribute.
The Earth Harmony Festival is a call to people of all creeds, colors, and cultures to come together now to help change our future before it's too late. We love seeing our friends, allies, and partners in this good fight! Participation is the best way that you can support the festival, so be sure to come out and see us!
We realize that these are trying times for all economically, and so we want you to know in advance that it really does mean a lot to us when you take the time to give. We are grateful for everything, because after all, a thousand dollars is just a bunch of one dollars together! :-)
We love you all and thank you so much. Help us spread the good word with the links below and we will see you there!

Risks and challenges
The festival is ON! We will meet our risks and challenges to bring the festival to you no matter what, so count on being able to be there and have a good time. All donations greatly assist us with the financial impact of putting on a huge festival, but with or without them, we believe that it is worth everything to have this opportunity available to the people!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
