Our fund raising for the headquarters rainwater collection and demonstration project is now complete, as Whole Earth co-owner/founder Jack Jones and Chaco rep Rob Morales hand us a check! Receiving the check for the Friends is Eleanor, our youngest Friend, Melissa Mial (Past President), and Robert Deming (President). We had earlier received a gift of $5,000 from Patagonia, and a total of about $13,000 from Whole Earth Provision Company and Chaco.
Of course, YOU made the gifts possible by being supporters of these fine retailers. We have a contractor lined up and will be making the installation soon. The rainwater collection project will provide water for the headquarters building and the interpretative landscaping beside the building.
