Preparing for the next funding round!

It was fantastic to have over 26 people, with their exciting ideas, attend our workshop last week! It is exciting to think how these people will play a role in shaping our city. The next workshop titled, 'How to run a great crowdfunding campaign', will be taking place on March 14 at the Voluntary Sector Council. #CrowdfundWolves 

Wolverhampton's "Box Crops" Urban Farm
Wolverhampton's "Box Crops" Urban Farm joined Crowdfund Wolves1 week ago

We want to turn a plot of unused land in Wolverhampton into a fully functioning urban hydroponics farm, by converting a reclaimed shipping container into an uber-sustainable windowless greenhouse. Producing fresh & organic vegetables, herbs and leafy greens in an environmentally friendly way, and selling the produce to local markets, businesses and people. Our aim is to reinvest a portion of profits into local initiatives so that wealth is retained within the city and directly benefits the local community. The project will also opperate as a platform of education to inform local people of the social and environmental consequences of food production and how thinking sustainably and creatively, can offer real solutions. Hopefully we can encourage a positive change. Your pledges and donations will allow us to obtain the shipping container and retro-fit it with the equipment required to turn this idea into a reality

Foods for thought
Foods for thought joined Crowdfund Wolves3 weeks ago

Foods for thought will provide 'happiness in a meal' which is the tagline behind the brand. It will concentrate on providing tasty food that people can eat/share allowing any profits post sales to be allocated towards supporting mental health. 4 of the 4 founders of this movement suffer with either chronic depression, suicidal thoughts or anxiety. Through their own personal journeys, loneliness and having someone to speak to has always been the biggest barrier. With isolation, loneliness and mental health all being prevelant in today's society, it is a goal of the founders to be able to tackle this, starting at home. By opening day centres, where people can meet regularly and support each other, to having days out where their worries or concerns can be understood by those in similar situations. The business aspect of this venture will support the community factor in really promoting a deeper awareness and understanding to tackle some of the most tragic illnesses in society today.
