Hello once again, friends and supporters of Camino Verde.
Once again I am pleased to report that we are nearing the $20k fundraising landmark for our project "Planting 1000 trees, Saving 100 acres." As you may remember, the project's immediate goals have been completed: we planted 1000 trees as part of our Living Seed Bank by March, and just last month in May we completed the legal paperwork in acquiring 100 more acres of rainforest to be preserved in perpetuity. Thank you (!!) for helping us to make this possible.
You may also remember that we expanded the project – and its fundraising goals – to include the creation of an on-site plant nursery. We are very happy to announce that we are also being supported by the Marjorie Grant Whiting Center towards the completion of this goal by mid 2012.
And now, with our sights set on fully funding this project, we have expanded once again. The project's budget now stands at $30,000 and the duration for the project has been expanded to 2 years. And our goals of course have expanded to keep pace: funding we receive from here on out will go to our next thousand trees, which we will start planting when the rains return in November. Some of these trees will be planted in a deforested area of the land we were able to purchase through your support!
Thank you once again for your help. We are very excited to be growing along with our trees.
