"Nature" Joe Duckett is a cool fella who is looking to start a nature school in our community. He already runs the community garden and farm at Redwood Acres. The next step is to remodel a building (they have to completely redo the electrical and more) so they can have classrooms.
Below you'll find the video they made for the kickstarter below. Donate to the cause here

Memphis Minnie, Queen of the Country Blues, Hoodoo Lady and influential guitarist who helped shape the roots of electric Chicago blues, as well as R&B and rock ‘n’ roll, long before she plugged in.
