SEEDING AUTONOMY crowdfunding… Pledges are closed, now we are receiving direct donations.
WHY WE NEED THE FUNDS: After 3 years, our self-generated strategies – bimonthly community market days (Feria Sustentina), sales of monthly baskets of country to city organic products, as well as seasonal products from our garden (Fair Produce/Víveres Justos) – have created a network of supporters who wish to eat organic and also support an autonomous alternative. We now need extra financial support to develop the process further, to generate more income, and to expand the educational and community possibilities of the garden. This development is not possible at our present level of income.
WHERE THE FUNDS WILL GO: The “Seeding Autonomy” crowdfunding campaign aims to pay the wages of our garden coordinators, Mariana and Carolina, so that they can design the garden space, oversee the sowing-harvesting cycles, expand our Fair Produce sales, develop the educational potential of the garden, seek funding and coordinate volunteer work. They have been doing this work with only minimum financial retribution over the three years since the garden began. The income we get at the moment from our Fair Produce sales only covers water costs and shifts by Colectivo members.
We need to boost our potential. Can you support us?
