Contributing to Fitchburg Fields
Every movement for positive change, every wonderful new
creation of humans, starts with a vision, and is built over many years with
hard work and broad participation.
If you are inspired by our vision for the 250-acre parcel
(click here for our Vision) that is currently owned by a developer, and if you are impressed by what we've
already accomplished with our current educational and charitable programs (click
here for more info), done on a shoestring with volunteer
power, then please give as large a contribution as you are able.
The faster we can grow, the more likely we'll be able to
purchase some or all of this very special 250-acre parcel. Because it's within the Urban Growth Boundary
of Fitchburg, it is in danger of conventional development. You can be a part of the movement to save it
for a new kind of development (click here for our Vision) that is much
more appropriate for our rapidly-approaching future.
Just imagine some years from now, visiting Fitchburg Fields,
taking an organic gardening course or stopping by on a bicycle trip, and
saying, "They couldn't have done this without me!" And you'll be
right. But we can do it with your help.
Thank you for contributing.

Honor someone you love or admire!
Looking for a gift for someone who has everything, except a sustainable society? Make a
donation in their honor, and we will send them an attractive card acknowledging
Yes, we have a Plan B.
Although this 250-acre parcel is our
preferred location, if we are unable to purchase it, our Land Purchase Fund
will be used to buy approximately the same acreage in another location in
Fitchburg (because of its proximity to the UW-Madison and groups that would
participate in the project). We will then transfer the entire organic Learning
Center concept to the new site and adjust the plan to the physical layout.
No small potatoes!
A large percentage of
our operating funds come from individual donations. We can't do this without community support,
and there is no such thing as too small of a donation. Whether your community is Fitchburg, Dane
County, or the community of folks who care about creating local, organic food
systems, your contribution will make a difference.
Garden and office
supplies, equipment and other physical items are also needed. Please click here to see our Wish List.
