Happy New Years! With just 5 days and almost $2500 to go of its $10,000 goal Muir Ranch looks like it’s successfully entering the world of crowd funding to start of 2014.
Since we are a little farm on the edge of the Rose Bowl in NW Pasadena and there is this parade thing in town this time of year we naturally thought, “Let’s do a ‘Pasadena Rose Garden’ and make a Toms shoes kinda’ buy 1/give 1 out of it!?” And that’s what we’ve done. If you buy a David Austin you get one donated to Muir Ranch too. Win/win, right?
We also have kale seeds, t-shirts, long table dinner tickets, and CSA vegetable and floral subscriptions on the campaign. Good stuff. Great prices. The full share of the CSA at $1000/50 weeks is 33% off the new 2014 price of $30/week.
We wish we wouldn’t have to do fundraisers to make ends meet around the farm. But training students how to be social entrepreneurs does have its costs. Fortunately, the method is the means and this campaign is an excellent hands on learning to for engaging your community (and customers) in doing good by doing good.
So please spread the word amongst your network. Only with your amazing support can we continue to grow (and eat really, really great food).
