A big thank you to all who came out for the inaugural Bonnamoo last Thursday night! Through your support, we raised $20,000 to support SPACE and our land conservation mission. This was a big undertaking for us and we were blown away by the support that we felt throughout the whole process. Bonnamoo was not only an important fundraiser for us and a chance to showcase our beautiful Cleveland Preserve Farm but also an incredible community building opportunity. We cannot thank our sponsors enough - we rely on their financial and in-kind support and could not put on events like this without them. We’re grateful to the talented musicians who played - local favorite the Shane Pruitt Band as the oppenner, and Southern Culture on the Skids as the main act - what an impressive inaugural line-up! We had an arsenal of volunteers who showed up ready for any task - especially the Compost Crew who helped sort through all of the waste from the event and make sure all of the compostables ended up in the proper bins. Thanks to Atlas Organics who coached us throughout that process - we diverted 353 pounds of compostable waste away from the landfill! Finally, we must thank our guests who came ready to embrace a new experience and support us during this event which is definitely helping to keep Spartanburg WILD.
