Why a Fundraiser?

Five years ago, we, Irucka Ajani and Obiora Embry, embarked on a quest to turn marginal grazing land into resilient land that feeds us, our collective community, pollinators, etc. We have completed our first leg of this journey using only our own funds.

As we move into the next phase, we are reaching out to our collective community (i.e., think of crowdfunding) near and far to help us acquire new plants, equipment, tools, supplies, and more so that we can bring more of our ideas for our two acres to fruition.

Although this is the first year that we have attempted to sell anything, we decided to do something different as we begin the next phase: to develop our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) through our first event—there will be limited samples of our current products. And you will meet the "growers of your food" and learn about the land that has chosen to be used by us on this journey.
