Hope for Pahokee #Eating Kickstarter Project Update

Submitted by Butterfield on January 2nd, 2013 at 3:59 PM

If you pledged to Martavious Odoms' #Eating Kickstarter campaign, you probably received an update via email today.  If not, here is the latest:

I know it has been awhile and everyone has been asking for updates but we didn't want to update until I had confirmed some of our plans for the Garden.  I just met with our partner Roger from Urban Greenworks about the layout of the garden and talking to the land owner about getting the land.  A big part of setting up the Garden is to get the land approved by the City as a place we can do the project and also we needed to reach an agreement with the land owners about the use of the land. 

We also drove around Pahokee through the different projects where I grew up because an important part of the Garden is involving the community.  I want each garden to be a representation of a project in Pahokee.  In the next few days and weeks we will have blue prints of how the garden will look to share and a timeline of when the garden is being planted and how we are going to do it.  We will post some of the garden plot names soon because I know people have been asking. 

Just so you all know we received all the rewards but the shirts are missed printed so we had to send them all back and get them done correctly so please stay patient with us.  We apologize for the delay.  We wanted to have them a lot sooner and this is taking a long time and we know that it can be frustrating but we are working our hardest and sometimes not everything goes according to plan and all we can do is keep working hard to get everything right.
