Through an outpouring of support from over 600 families in our community, our nonprofit was able to purchase the land where Dharma's Garden has operated for the last seven years, narrowly saving this farm from being lost forever!
One of our supporters, Sarah Beasley, wrote a nice article about it here:
Cultivating Wild: The Miracle of Dharma’s Garden!
...But our work is not over yet...
Part of the funds that we raised is in the form of low-interest loans from a few individuals and families who really wanted to help us succeed. In order to pay back these loans so that the nonprofit can own the land free and clear, we still have nearly $2 million to raise. In addition to the land acquisition, there are substantial costs associated with the ongoing operation of the nonprofit and its signature farm project.
In short, we still need your help!
