Anyway, she is trying to raise $25,000 to put a smaller, cheaper building on part of her property that will not be taken by ODOT. These are not good times for local food entrepreneurs to be going to banks, and thus April embarked on a non-traditional fundraising campaign using the "Kickstart" program, which invites people to fund ventures like April's that also have broad social and environmental impacts with gifts of capital that can make a difference between success and failure.
This is a time-limited campaign, and we are down to the wire. As of 10 AM on Thursday, November 4th, we have 32 hours left for people to commit to help April. We are only about one-third of the way towards the goal, so there is a lot to be done.
- If you have not made a commitment, please go to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/320205243/earth-elements-local-food-community-kitchen and make a pledge right now.
