We did it - thanks to you!
You are one of the wonderful 186 parklet backers, so you received the news as soon as we did: at midnight on April 1st, our kickstarter campaign finished successfully. And as you can see, we met - and surpassed - our goals!
Obviously, we couldn't have done any of this without YOU. It's true: neighbors, friends, family, even long-lost pals and perfect strangers came together to back this project, and we are so grateful for each one of you! We can't thank you enough.
And we can't wait to start building! We're working with the designer and contractor to finalize details and schedule this week, and we're hoping to start construction before the end of the month.
If you have selected one of the kickstarter backer rewards, we will be following up with each of you in the next week or so to get any necessary additional information (e.g. mailing address, etc). In the meantime, please feel free to email us with any questions.

Report: Pre-Parklet Street Party
It was wonderful to see all of you who stopped by to celebrate the end of our kickstarter last Sunday, April 1st, at the Pre-Parklet Party and kickstarter finale at Farm:Table. It was a blast. The sun was shining down on Mrs. Robinson's flea market and bake sale, Zack from Huckleberry Bikes fixed up bikes in the street, Jason took a crew to the roof garden while Michael guided a gaggle of you through the 'hood, and kids played in the grass. OK it was just astroturf and some houseplants, but it was exciting to see a preview of what life might be like around these parts, post-parklet. :)
