We made it! We've been blown away by the generosity demonstrated on our fundraising campaign: thanks to you all we've met our goal of $5,000 to get our aquaponics system running this spring. In the next few weeks we'll be installing solar power, ordering fish, building a cooler and getting more ducks (plus planting and everything else of course). Thanks so much to all who contributed and hold on while we order the shirts, stickers and other perks you signed up for (we'll be in touch shortly to specify what items you chose)!
The campaign stills runs for one more week so it's not too late! Anything raised beyond our goal will go toward another important expense: bringing down up to a dozen dead ash trees looming over our orchard and neighbors' homes and power lines. We'll use all that wood to heat the house for years to come and to fuel perennial hugelkultur beds across the orchard starting this year.
