Putting Down Roots
Now, for the first time, The Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions has a place to demonstrate what it means to develop local self-sufficiency and resilience; a place to showcase soil and ecosystem regeneration; a place to encourage local food production and spur re-localization of our economy; a place to regenerate our communities and our relationship with the land! We hope that you will consider giving generously to our Putting Down Roots campaign. We have several ways to give and several naming opportunities to honor a loved one, including:
Named Sponsorship of 25 Feet of Bike Path - $2,500
Installing a bike and walking path between our barn and the Yellow Springs High School will open up Agraria to students and community members of all ages. The path will also connect through the village to the Little Miami Scenic Trail–a 78 mile trail between Cincinnati and Springfield. A plaque will be displayed next to the finished bike path.
Plaque on Barn Board - $1,500
Agraria's historic barn has already hosted several educational and recreational events. As the barn is renovated, named plaques will be hung on the barn boards.
We appreciate all the support we receive. Any amount you choose to give is perfect. We are also always in need of volunteers to do invasive plant removal and other important work!
These website buttons will take payment by credit card. If you wish to pay by check, feel free to just send a note to our mailing address with your payment, or contact a staff member and we will be glad to assist you.
Tree Naming and Plaque - $500
As The Nature Conservancy removes invasives along Jacoby Creek, native trees will be planted in their place. A plaque will be displayed next to a tree of your choice.
Friend of Agraria - $5,000
Being a Friend of Agraria enables our most important initiatives. Names will be displayed prominently, with input from Friends regarding location.
Founder of Agraria - $25,000
Founders of Agraria ensure our future, providing benefits to our entire community. Names will be displayed prominently, with input from Founders regarding location.
