Fire on the micro farm

$8,905 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 138 people in 16 days
We are a family owned microgreens business in Austin.  Saturday we had a huge fire that destroyed our supply shed and greenhouse.  Our seed bank, growing equipment, tools, packaging supplies, and most our pride quickly went up in smoke.  We estimate $40,000 in damage.  We need $8,000 quickly to get production back up before we lose clients.  Donations will be spent on seeds, hydro equipment, market booth tables and tents, greenhouse plastic and shade cloth.  We also will need volunteers to help us move and rebuild what’s left of our greenhouse. 
Our business has been steadily growing for 6 years now, especially since our daughter came into our life and gave us a great reason to build a farm we can be proud of.  We are worried about losing many of our valued chef clients if we don’t bounce back from the fire damage quickly and strongly. Our chefs are the backbone of our farm, so we are reaching out to you for some help over this hurdle. 30369218_15281514720_r.jpeg

Your donations will go a long way towards keeping us in business. We are very good at growing specialty produce for chefs and farmers markets. We don’t want to let this disaster keep us from our goals.
