Last Thursday night the Future Feeders contingent travelled to Brisbane for an exciting event called Speed Seed Dating (graciously hosted by The Goodness Inc). The idea is to pair up "changemakers" (that's people like us) with people who have the resources to make things happen. Genius!
We arrived with few expectations but pinned our hopes on raising $50 000 to go towards our market garden. The two hour event whizzed by in a blur of friendly faces, eager investors and newly sparked connections that we're continuing to explore.
Via this platform we've also launched our crowdfunding campaign. That's where you come in.
Let's cut to the chase: We need some cash if we're really going to get this thing going and we've got 25 days left to reach $50 000.
We know we have our work cut out for us and we can't do it alone! We're talking about the future of food here! We're talking about a new generation of young people who are armed with the knowledge and skills they require to ethically produce food. We're talking about dynamic young farmers who see the need for an ecological approach to agriculture and want to lead the way with a new system.
We have the land, we have the man (and woman!) power and we have the energy. Now we need some funds.
We're ready to step up but we need your support.
If you need more convincing please get in touch, we'd love any excuse to talk about the importance of the future of food!
