When you become a Friend of the AASD, it means…

* you support community-led, participatory development and not monetary handouts.

* you believe that providing knowledge and education is the key to sustainable change because it gives people the skills they need to build a healthy and happy future.

* you consider using collective intelligence and the power of community to be instrumental in creating lasting change.


What is it?  Becoming a Friend of the AASD is our new donation campaign that allows you, the donor, to select from a modest monthly giving of $10, $25, $50, or $100. It is easy to set up and deducts from your account each month so you don’t have to hassle with it. The benefits of a steady income for the AASD are immense. A small donation from you can make a big difference in someone’s life. A contribution of…
* $10 a month can support one year of greenhouse workshops for one family.
* $25 a month can support our year-long school greenhouse program for a team of five students.

* $50 a month can fund a bee-keeping or biointensive agriculture workshop at our demonstration farm.

* $100 a month can provide an agriculture internship for a local greenhouse technician or school caretaker.
