48 Hours To Go For Hamilton Crop Circle Pledge Drive
Support Hamilton Crop Circle. Click on the Kickstarter link to the left and make your pledge. This project will only be funded if at least $15,000 is pledged by Thursday Jul 29, 11:59am EDT. Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires or no money changes hands.
Here’s what Hamilton Crop Circle in Baltimore does:
Local Composting Program
Hamilton Crop Circle works with area restaurants to collect compostable materials at no charge, reducing waste, while creating natural fertilizer.
Roof Top Gardening
HCC is developing a system of rooftop gardening projects in the industrial and mercantile sectors throughout Baltimore City to produce locally grown food.
Feeding The Hungry
Recognizing the need to provide fresh food to Baltimore’s needy HCC has forged a partnership between Our Daily Bread and the Baltimore Farmers Market to donate fresh foods weekly.
By developing microfarms at area schools, HCC is educating young people about where food comes from, and how to grow it. The gardens are ideally watered by the school’s rooftop cistern. The vegetables find their way to the cafeteria and the science room.
POST UPDATE: When this call for pledges was posted at 12:00 pm on 7/27 the Hamilton Crop Circle had $300 to go. They have since surpassed their goal -way to go Hamilton Crop Circle!
