Southern Roots Organics CSA Crowdfuding Success!!
Not only did we finish our crowd funder but incredibly we reached our stretch target of £9500! We are bowled over and deeply grateful by the incredible support that so many people have given us.
The crowdfunder started on national CSA day and came to an end on the spring equinox - the first day of spring! Under a blue sky we got into the swing of spring work: potting on tomatoes, sowing salads and finished making the doors on a polytunnel. As the growing season begins, we are going into it feeling very excited about bringing Southern Roots Organics CSA to life. And this really would not have been possible without all of your support.
A lasting reflection for us as our crowdfunder campaign came to an end is the power in community support and collective financing that has helped make this idea a reality. Having dozens of friends and people in our wider community give donations to our project has brought with it so much appreciation and a feeling of value that no other method of fund raising can match.
All of your contributions from £1 to £1000 have far more than just monetary value to us. The support and encouragement we received has helped us do much more than simply set up the physical infrastructure of our project, it has shown us that our project is valued and has given us a strong sense of community backing. This is of huge worth to us, and provides strong foundations on which there is much we can build.
We look forward to a vigorous, fertile and relatively weed-free growing season.
With huge thanks and gratitude,
Dee and Adam
