Short Summary

Clements Agricultural Research Institute (CARI) is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to operating a sustainable Organic Farm and Garden. The farm is called Iroquois Organic Farm, and it is located on the Mighty St. Lawrence River, which is the boundary between Canada and the USA in this area. The farm is a research and training farm and we focus on training Returning Veterans and others how to operate a sustainable organic farm. CARI also has the Tilden Stage Inn B&B, and the Kitchen at Iroquois Farm, a farm to table restaurant at the Farm. At Iroquois Farm we grow vegetables and field crops, and plan on expanding into other types of farming. At present we are doing research on year around growing, as our local farmers cannot compete if they cannot grow year around. At present the cost of heating oil eats up all the profit. We have designed a system to use River Water and Passive Solar to heat the greenhouses. On Saturday November 16 a wind wrecked our green house. We need funds to rebuild the greenhouse, and to help finish the design and engineering on the geothermal heating system. We also need a pellet stove for the restaurant that will help heat it, as the oil furnace is not doing the job, and we have a friend who will contribute the pellets.

What We Need 

We need $50,000, to rebuild the greenhouse, and to finish the engineering on the geothermal system to heat this and other greenhouses, and for the Pellet stove. We need this quickly, as the Restaurant needs greens from the Greenhouse.
