We're getting there - thanks to you

Hi,

It's only been one week since we launched Cultivate Oxford's Crowdfunder and yet we've already raised 20% of our target.  And this week we also had a record number of orders through Cultivate Online - the Sandy Lane cauliflowers went down a storm!

We just wanted to send a huge thank you to you for being among the first to pledge your support - it means so much to us.  It's been incredible to receive your messages of support for Cultivate's mission of making good local food more accessible to people in and around Oxford. 

One supporter told us:  "Cultivate Oxford is the sole regular provider of local vegetables in my neighbourhood. I don't have a car to do my groceries and the local shops hardly sell good, tasty and juicy seasonal vegetables ... but Cultivate Oxford does > so thanks to CO, I can enjoy the seasons as they come through mostly locally grown veggies ... and eggs"

And a special thank you to all of you who've been spreading the word about the Crowdfunder through social media, email and word of mouth - it's really helping.  We have until 10th May to raise the remaining £16,065 - and we will do it with your help!

Could you help spread the word by sharing this post on social media?

Thank you again from Cultivate's Crowdfunder team,

Louise, Mim and Doireann
