    Met with Jacob and am very impressed with all of your visions. How about a Kickstarter campaign? Starting an new business venture always requires a lot of money.

    I’ve gotten a glimpse of what you’re doing at the Greenhouse Cafe location through my brother, Steve. I have started delving into hydroponics and now aquaponics in my apartment in Fairport. If you ever do have hands on training of any sort, I woukd be very interested to learn more. Sustainable Organic is the way to go for health, taste, and conservation.

    Well done!

    I’ve just spent a few minutes talking with Amber. I’m giddy with excitement and feel a warm feeling in my heart because of what you folks are doing. I dont have to get bleak or down because the world is a mess. You folks are healing the world and I’m blessed to know some of you. Thank you so much for all the good work you do. You are the future for this country and things are looking pretty good because of people like you. Keep on keepin’ on. To quote Stephen Stills

    I am interested in knowing more about your efforts. I work for NeighborWorks Rochester ( a non-profif) and we have energy improvement resources, including energy improvement grants to low-moderate income renters and homeowners. I don’t know if there might be a way for us to work together in some way, but would be open to talking to you about it.
