We appreciate your support. 

We are not a membership organization and therefore cannot depend on that form of contribution. 
We  currently have little income outside of the community donations we receive (whether as a workshop donation or gifts from friends and donors!) 
We need your help
with our solvency in 2015 as we adjust to being our own entity as a non-profit organization (no longer a part of Seedcorn.)

Every penny counts, and you won't find a more frugal organization anywhere.
We appreciate your generosity.

Thank you for making a generous gift!
