Huge, huge thanks to everyone who gave so generously to our Patronicity campaign! We're so grateful for the amazing outpouring of support that took us not just to our goal of $65,000 but beyond to $86,600! This first phase of our year-long campaign to raise the funding needed to open the Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace couldn't have gone better, and we appreciate everyone who gave, supported us, and helped spread the word.
Thanks to your support, as part of our Patronicity campaign we'll be receiving an additional $65,000 from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. We're well on the way to reaching our goal of $400,000 which will get the MarketPlace open and provide Growing Hope with crucial working capital.
Growing Hope is very grateful to Barnes & Barnes for their invaluable contribution to this vision. Their support of this project, and the purchase of the necessary properties is making this all possible!
