Donations Flow in to Help Navajo Youth Farm Get Clean Water

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown August 24th, 2015 Last Updated on: August 24th, 2015


It's amazing to see what can happen in just a few short days! The Northern Diné Youth Committee recently setup a crowdfunding page to help their youth farm transition to drip-irrigation, something desperately needed after the recent Animas-San Juan River mine spill which contaminated the regional water supply. Their Shiprock farm is a great educational tool for the children in the community and they did not want to lose this valuable resource. Folks around the world pitched in to help out and they were proud to announce that they already surpassed their original goal of $5,000!

Check out what they've already been able to do with the funds everyone has sent in!

If you'd like to help donate to the cause, just follow this link to their GoFundMe page: http://www.gofundme.com/ShiprockYouthFarm. Good luck guys and I hope you have a wonderful harvest!
