For those of you who have been following our progress here at Foodscaping, we're happy to share that we will be changing the business model from a for-profit business to a non-profit. Our reasons are many, but the biggest is that we have chosen to begin working as soon as possible in the public sphere by public donations, and we feel that this will allow us to move faster and with the help of people who want to assist the change back to Earthen communities that:
Know what a rutabaga and lots of other varieties of produce are
Love to see fresh produce within cities
Want to see 'wasteland' and barren land transformed into thriving, self-sustaining ecosystems that produce food (fruits and various vegetables), provide shelter for animals and beneficial insects, restore the soil and hold water in the land.
Our projects so far have been on Alexandra's apartment block in Los Angeles where a keyhole garden transformed a barren lawn and created community, a vegetable garden in Alexandra's Eugene home, and many various projects at Mike's Million Daisy Farm, where there are two polytunnels going in, an herb spiral, a pond, ducks and water harvesting systems. Those are will be privately funded. Your donations will not go to our own private projects, unless you specify that this is what you want.
Our latest project, which you may donate to should you wish, is going in at Chambers and 7th St in Eugene, Oregon, where Mike and Alexandra live. We would love your support as we begin this non-profit with a steady push, funded so far by ourselves because we believe that bringing edible gardening and thriving ecosystems back into the common daily life is of utmost importance to the happy, fulfilling future of humans on this unique and beautiful planet. We hope you agree enough to donate $5 to help us move forward and inspire others to do so as well!
