My name is Amber, and I live on a small farm in South Carolina.
My family's main source of food is my small garden in which I grow many vegetables and my small flock of chickens and rabbits on which we rely for fresh eggs and meat.
My gardening area is confined to roughly 2 acres of my property at the moment. I am hoping to expand this to cover most of the 17 acres on which I live.
My dream is to be able to provide fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and honey for my family and to also have enough to donate to the homeless shelters in my area. There are also several elderly families in my area who enjoy what vegetables I give them. It helps them to stretch their money just a little further to be able to buy their medications and other things they need to survive.
I have several years of beekeeping experience and many more years of gardening and farming experience.
All of the knowledge in the world can't help me if I can't afford an expansion. I am seeking help to purchase fruit trees, plants, supplies, bees, supers, more chicken coops and rabbit hutches, possibly a milking cow, and other supplies necessary for farming.
Not only will your donation be helping me, but it will also be helping all of the needy families who consume goods from my farm.
I make my own cheese, sour cream, yogurt and other dairy products and am hoping to be able to purchase my own dairy cow with some of my donation.
In appreciation for all donations sent, I will plant a 'Gratitude Garden' after the money is recieved. A flower will be planted for each backer of this endeavor.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and God bless all of you.
