Great news! Growing Home’s Kickstarter project – Harvesting Hope – has been selected to Seed Chicago, the city’s new curated Kickstarter page for projects specifically focusing on job creation and growth in Chicago’s neighborhoods. A major benefit to being selected to Seed Chicago is our project will receive increased exposure, increasing our ability to meet our funding goal and build a new hoophouse in Englewood. Seed Chicago is a direct result of Chicago’s Plan for Economic Growth and Jobs strategy to nurture neighborhoods and foster continuous development of talent, business and real-estate assets. The Plan was developed by World Business Chicago at the request of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel last year in order to accelerate Chicago’s economic growth. We are excited to be one of eleven projects featured on Seed Chicago.
The initiative was featured on the front page of the Chicago Tribune business section as well as in Crain’s Chicago Business online. If you don’t have access to the Tribune online, check out the article here.
