So I bit the bullet and started a go fund me page to help raise funds for this growing year. I have already raised a few hundred dollars to cover the costs of helping the families in Anaktuvuk Pass with greenhouses get their plants going and for fertilizer and seedlings and such but I have realized that I have extra costs this year.

This year we absolutely need to buy a new plastic top for the high tunnel. It was looking extremely thin and battered with several holes last year already and I don’t think duct tape will get it through the season again. I have already contacted the company that sells the high tunnel and got a quote for cost and shipping and it is the majority of the costs.
I also want to purchase the equipment to start learning gravity drip irrigation. I should have started this a while ago but got really intimidated. I’m diving head first this year and I KNOW it will make a huge difference. I have included the cost of five beds worth of supplies.
I also have to pay property taxes and usually I make enough money to cover this small fee through sale, but last year was a complete wash and I ended up in a hole. LESSON LEARNED. Who would have thought this little Inupiaq in the middle of no where would have to learn agriculture accounting?!
Anyways I hope this post finds you all healthy and happy and enjoying your spring! Stay warm and I promise that I will try and post more on this awesome blog.
