Community Investment Campaign Recap
Now that our June Investment Campaign has ended, we want to thank all the investors and volunteers who helped make this campaign such a succcess! With support from over 80 investors, we raised $338,500 in community investments in just 2 months! That means that we've raised over half the quity needed to make sure Urban Greens not only opens, but thrives as a community owned and oeprated business. The success of this campaign is a testament both to the impact of community capital and to growing excitement around the Co-op.
Without so many committed and excited individuals, we would never have made it this far. Thank you!
