We are excited to announce an exciting fundraiser for the Atalanta Cooperative Orchard-Garden beginning today at noon and continuing through December 15th. We have been approved to compete for a $eedMoney garden grant. Using the $eedMoney crowdfunding platform we are raising money to purchase raised handicap accessible beds and additional fruit trees. Our goal is $600 but we get to keep any amount we raise. The first 50 projects to reach the $600 goal will be awarded an addition $400!
Anything we raise above the $600 still goes toward the garden – and we have many projects to fund. Some of the projects in the garden that need funding are an improved watering system, expanding our windbreak, building raised beds in the new greenhouse, finishing the cold storage room, and so many more! We are also hoping to fund a garden leader position next summer to provide support and guidance for volunteers who would like to work on these projects.
We appreciate all of your support! We had a wonderful 17th growing season and we are very excited about the possibilities this fundraising opportunity will bring for out 18th year!
Please spread the word and visit our funding page to read more about how the garden benefits the community through food production and education and to donate beginning at noon today!
Learning to Live with Personal Responsibility, in Peace and Harmony with all Creation.
The Atalanta project is a non-profit enterprise which is building and creating a model permaculture and husbandry environment. It is a place of learning that fosters growth of children and adults in the healing, creative, and technological arts, which honors the human spirit, nature, and community.
To date Atalanta has been using permaculture-based land-use design to demonstrate sustainable living through cultural, economic, and environmental programs. The current structures on the land demonstrate alternative building methods and materials, renewable energy sources, and ecologically appropriate technology. Atalanta projects at this time include the Community Co-Op Orchard Garden, the High Valley Dairy Goat and Sheep Co-Op, and the Therapeutic Riding Program.
Support Atalanta today, your tax deductable donation is appreciated!
