It’s an exciting day for us at Old World Garden Farms!

chikenIn just 4 hours, our 30-day Kickstarter Campaign Book Project will come to a close – and thanks to all of you – our Growing Simple Book and Tour will be funded!  (Kickstarter officially closes the campaign today at 12:30 EST, March 22nd).

In fact – with the additional money raised above the original $8500 goal ( the total now stands at $9447), we have been able to add 2 more cities to the tour, with the 13th city of Denver still in reach to be added as well!  (with every additional $500, we are able to add a city.)

Book and Book Tour Details…

The book will be completed this year over the summer and early fall months and then published and available around the first of December. The book tour will take place over the course of the Spring and Summer months of 2016.
