Eric Stewart, Director of Kinship Urban Farm in New Port Richie, Florida has started a Gofundme Project. Kinship Urban Farm is growing fresh vegetables behind the Habitat For Humanity for several years. Eric Stewart brings competent leadership to a group of volunteers who grow clean, wholesome food for the community and offers instructional courses several times throughout the year.

The objective is to build and equip a nursery for raising 10,000 seedlings every month. These will be used to grow several more community gardens, private home gardens, and support the continued success of the Kinship Urban Farm. I've been there personally and can speak to the efforts and progress of the operation and the dedication of the people involved. This place has everything going on and serves as a testiment to what can be done in a small space in an urban setting: backyard laying hens, tank raised tilapia, composting, vermicomposting, raised beds, biodynamic planting, SPIN Farming, a farmer's market, classes and seminars, irrigation techniques, plus the involvement of kids and community members all round the Tampa area.

Your donation will be put to good use. The goal is $5000, but all donations will get through even if the goal is not met.
Meeting and exceeding the goal would be AWESOME.

Please spare a couple of bucks for a good cause!



Edited to add the link. Can you believe I left it out? Where is my head?

Getting the word out is a key element in promoting this project. If you involved with facebook, share the link and help spread the idea.
Please make a donation, a dollar is fine and will be greatly appreciated. I want to see your name on the donation list!
