Have you checked out our Kickstarter curated page? For the uninitiated: Kickstarter is an easy way for creative projects to get funding through small donations from a large number of people -- and each donation comes with fantastic rewards set by the project's owners. We have two fantastic projects for you today -- consider supporting them!
The first is Birds, bars & boxes...in artisan chocolate from Robyn Dochterman of St. Croix, Wisconsin. Her chocolate shop, the St. Croix Chocolate Company, is commissioning beautiful chocolate molds from artist Laura McCaul. The three-dimensional chocolate art, made with organic TCHO chocolate from San Francisco, will be packaged in gorgeous handmade boxes that can be reused to package gifts or store jewelry. The company's committment to fair trade, supporting local agriculture (their cream and milk come from a farm just 10 miles away from the shop!), and seasonal ingredients is inspiriing.
Next up we have This Must Be the Place, an art space in Brooklyn located above the restaurant Marlow and Sons. Run by the same crowd who run Diner Journal, the project aims to better equip their event space to host classes, art exhibits, performances, dancing, eating, drinking, artist residencies, and more.

This is the sixth in our biweekly series from Amy Pennington — urban farmer, founder of GoGo Green Garden, and author of Urban Pantry and Apartment Gardening — on how to start growing your own food, no matter how tiny your garden-to-be is.
It's not that easy to germinate a seed. We have to wait for the ground to dry up and the sun to start shining to really take full advantage of the garden here in the Pacific Northwest. The same goes for New Englanders, though they have to wait for the ground to thaw first. In stark comparison, gardeners in California can garden year-round. (And it's apparently summer according to recent weather in Washington, DC, so who knows!) But no matter the weather, starting seeds can accelerate the process of growing in any conditions.Read More »
Have you heard of Kickstarter? It's a crowdsourced funding website where anyone can pitch their innovative idea for an art project, film, computer program, company, or any other creative project to the internet and get small amounts of funding that add up to big bucks -- it takes a village to make a project! You get rewards, too, based on your level of donation.Read More »
