Project Launch

Through a friend I recently found the website Kickstarter. If you have not heard of it before, it is a Funding Platform website that will help you raise funds for new projects. If you have a good idea and need funding all you have to do is complete the application and submit the project. If your project meets their guidelines then they will let you launch it.

Being our goal is to have the Mini Farm be a full fledged CSA, I decided to try it out and submit that project to Kickstarter. They liked it and launched the project yesterday. I asked for funding to build new Gardens and Greenhouses to provide the space to grow enough food for the CSA members. The Mini Farm already has a customer base with the animals we sell and many customers have asked to be put on the waiting list for when it gets up and running.   

You can go to the link below and check it out. This is my personal project that I submitted and when you click on the Mini Barn there will be a cute little video of me talking about what we want to do. I don't have all that fancy video equipment most of them used so it is just me in the truck talking to the computer.

I look at it this way, this is something we have wanted and is the goal of the Mini Farm. What could it hurt, right.
Thanks for checking it out.

    sista - Peace by piece was the plan but I figured what the heck, if it works then I would have made a heck of a jump instead of just a step.
