Kickstart!

Bees and Trees Project!


I know that many of you have been following our progress on the farm, and thought you might be interested - I've just launched a Kickstarter project to help us bring in bees as pollinators (honeybees and native bumblebees) as well as trees (both native and fruit-producing) which is our goal this year. You can help make it happen (and receive some great gifts and mojo in return!)

If you know of anyone who might be interested or would be willing to share this, I would greatly appreciate it! We're trying to get the word out and hoping to spend this summer being chased by bees, building bat houses and bumblebee boxes, and digging infinite holes. :)

Please feel free to point people here or to the site above - it also has great, easy buttons for sharing on twitter or facebook.

And as always - thank you so much for your time and support!!

That is an absolutely cracking project and a wonderful, noble idea. I see it's garnered 23% of its target already, too, so fingers firmly crossed!

Thank you so much! I was really worried because most of the projects on Kickstarter the people pay professionals to make a beautiful video and we're terrible at that - but I think we have a good idea and a lot of love for the work we do, that other people think so too is really humbling. :) We're one step closer to being chased by bees and digging infinite holes this summer :)

And now over halfway there! Go go go! :)

[Edit later] Only $100 to go! I hear the hum of big fat eager bees approaching!

[Still later] Dingggg!!! Congratulations! We want to hear the story of the bees!

Thank you!! We are so excited, and promising videos of all things bee-related. :) We're able to pick them up locally which is really exciting - step one, car full of beees!

We should have offered mailing pet bees, but I am afraid they won't do well without their buddiesqueen overlord... overlady? :)

Posted on MDA, hope it helps! Also posted over at Lycanthropology, I know it's not a LOT of traffic, but let's hope you get some!

Also, going to check my finances after the 15th and see what I can do for you as well! ^_^

Tweeted about it. :D I'm hoping I can make enough extra money at my school's art sale to make a contribution. You and Mbala have been such inspirations to me over the years, and anything to help your farm take off...<3
