Important message from Nicolas Cadilhac, PlantCatching's creator
Support PlantCatching to prevent its premature death!!
Dear gardeners and friends,
Plantcatching has been carried for four years by one person alone. To develop and maintain a complete website for sharing within the realm of horticulture and urban agriculture, often adding functionalities requested by yourselves, is an enormous amount of time. Seeing it progress is a passion of mine, and I would love to be able to support it financially myself. Unfortunately, I’m running out of resources and without your help, I won’t be able to keep it going. Plantcatching will come to a stop, a victim of its own success!
Launched as an experiment, Plantcatching now works very well and has the potential to grow into not only a strong network between gardeners, both locally and around the world, but into a huge commons of plant resources. It is the only citizen platform that is sufficiently whole to reach this potential, and you are among the thousands of people already using it.
Instead of running an online funding campaign like a Kickstarter, which is very demanding and temporary, I decided to invest my time into building interesting functions that are useful to you on a daily basis. On the side, I also created Bamboo Accounts with paying gardening professionals in mind and although close to twenty have registered so far, it is not nearly enough. Since many of you expressed interest in supporting Plantcatching last year, I created the Bamboo Shoot account to cater for home gardeners.
In exchange for helping keep Plantcatching going with a donation, you get the following benefits:
The money that will be collected thanks to your paying for an account will be used to:
Plantcatching is YOUR platform; the gardeners’ platform. Please support it by registering for a Bamboo Shoot account and by sharing this campaing throughout your social networks, online and offline!
