Howdy Folks!

Team Red Clover has embarked on creating free educational videos about natural healing and herbs, and music which can help to heal the body and the soul! Some of the things that we have already filmed and will film are podcasts and videos about local herbs and interviews and field trips with our associated 4th generation foraging herbalist ("T"). She embodies so many stories of herbal folklore and herbal knowledge that comes, in part, from the later 19th Century's slave culture. Other folks we want to do video interviews with are local Naturopathic Doctors, Chiropractors, Holistic Practitioners, and Natural Friendly Medical Doctors. We also want to post more live recorded acoustical musical performances. Last but not least, we are working to increase Red Clover Herbs & Market's inventory of essential oils, doing a solid restocking and expanding of our bulk herbs, and moving forward a dramatic development of our website which includes getting more of our goods listed online for the semi-local folks to shop ahead of time before they come to town! 

Our Basic Goals:
   1. To obtain additional video production equipment, software, computers, etc.
   2. Raise money to add more product variety and stock the shelves more fully with bulk herbs and such
   3. To continue to serve the Idaho Falls area with a quality herb shop with great herbal teas and herbal products
   4.  Develop our website more dramatically - to increase national sales and bring to town more outside capital. 

Our efforts could really use some funding that we don't currently have. We've already started producing videos for the Red Clover Channel (click to see channel ) and are in need of additional equipment. What we currently have is barely working and inadequate in so many ways. It's a lot to ask for, but we will be creating much FREE content - which isn't free to produce. And, we are lacking adequate funds to expand our inventory, and do a solid restocking of what we already have. We literally started this business with a small amount of inventory that we acquired on loan through liquidation from the previous business in this location, zero capital, and $400 cash...oh, and some free help and advice from the Small Business Development Center. Heck, we aren't sure how we were able to pay the first month's rent, but we did! Our business currently has no debt, and we have never missed paying a single overhead expense. Who knows, maybe we can even help to create a few more jobs in this process too! We've been struggling to get ahead here in Idaho Falls over four years now - it's way past time to get this show on the road. Please vote for us to succeed with your generous contributions!

Also, if you want to contribute on a monthly basis, visit our Patreon Page  and pledge $1 or more per month to become a regular supporter. There, you will be able to get cool rewards and view bonus material. Anybody that pledges $5 per month at our Patreon Site, or gives $60 minimum here on Go Fund Me, can have their names listed as contributors on every video we produce for the next year. We plan on making T-shirts for higher level contributors too...but the design is still in progress.

YOUR SUPPORT MEANS EVERYTHING TO US! No kidding here...without your generosity and patronage, our goals will be much, much, slower and more limited and difficult to make happen. And, if we keep going the way we are, our shop will have to be consolidated and closed eventually. Our overhead is eating into our ability to expand. We want to continue to provide education, entertainment, and better product selection for those that really love Natural Health and would like to have a friendly local establishment to provide it better and more personably here in the Idaho Falls area. 

LET'S DO SOMETHING AMAZING...and...THANKS SO MUCH for helping to move these goals forward!

Sincerely,

The Red Clover Team
