I'm happy to announce that we have reached over $1000 in pledges in just 5 days! Thanks to all of you for your support and for sharing our campaign with your friends and family. It's inspiring to realise how much generosity there is out there for project such as this. It's still early days and we've still got $6000 to raise over the next 55 days, but it's a promising start.
We will keep you updated about the progress of the campaign and building of the gazebo and have started a new update page on facebook you can join and follow
Latest news: This Friday we're meeting with the University Buildings and Property project manager and the straw bale builder representing the project (Lance from House of Bales, that's been involved in the project for 8 years!) to nut out how the engineers design for the gazebo relate to the cost of the build. The designs have a large amount of concrete in the footings and foundations which make the project a lot more expensive than we first anticipated. But there is goodwill from all sides so we're confident of a compromise.
Please share our crowd-funder campaign page with your friends and family help us reach the required $7000 we need to build a strawbale gazebo for our community garden.

Peace and mud, Kegan
