We've got our fingers crossed!

Through the end of August, you can support Backyard Harvest through Kickstarter!

What is Kickstarter? Kickstarter is a web-based funding organization that helps creative projects of all kinds get the money they need to do the cool stuff that they envision. Backers like you pledge an amount to the project. If the total amount requested is reached, your pledge is accepted & the money goes to support the project! Plus, you get a reward if you choose one. If the total is not reached, your money just stays in your bank account. 😦
We would love to have your pledge contributing to our Kickstarter total! Just go to our project (here: & click on “Back this project”. Any amount over $2 will help us to reach our goal & continue to offer, improve & expand our great urban ag programming for urban farming entrepreneurs, food shelf patrons needing fresh veggies, beginning backyard gardeners, urban eaters & food system crusaders. Did I mention that there are rewards that are AWESOME!?

Remember that funding is all or nothing. We have to real our goal of $8,200 to receive any money at all through Kickstarter.

Will you please help us spread the word?
