March 31st was the deadline for the Greenhouse for Living fundraising campaign to raise $891,000 in order to secure a grant from the Wyoming Business Council to provide infrastructure for the project. Barbara Walter, who serves on the campaign committee, tells us.
Barbara says the gifts ranged from $20 from an elderly woman all the way to 6-figure gifts from several Sheridan foundations. They are still accepting donations; you may mail a contribution to PO Box 444, Sheridan, WY 82801.
Now that the goal has been reached, they will be awaiting word from the USDA hopefully by June to hear if they will receive a loan.
