Why Should You Contribute To

Ultimately, it’s up to you.  Our content is 100% free, regardless of what you choose to do.

The truth is this…

We didn’t start this site to make money!

We saw the need to fill a gap for public, freely accessible extreme northern climate growing information.  Expense, thus far, has always been a secondary factor.

However, things have been trending to a point where eventually, we’ll need some sort of revenue stream to make things work.

Our operating costs to run are now between $430 to $500 dollars per year.  That’s about $36 to $42 per month.  We largely bear those costs personally.  We gladly do it, believing what’s good for the goose is ultimately good for the gander!

Frankly, we did not foresee our “little hobby website” becoming a fixture on the internet, requiring expensive professional grade web hosting services.

We’d prefer if we can continue to do this whole thing voluntarily, by the graciousness of our most dedicated and supportive readers.

Honestly, we don’t need or want much from you!

But, if we’ve helped you become a better gardener, surely that might be worth something to you?

Beyond our costs, we put hundreds of hours of work into every single year.  That doesn’t even include our gardening efforts!  From research, to technical “back end” stuff, to developing interesting stuff to write about and then actually writing about it – that takes a LOT of time!

We have also begun investing into our YouTube channel.  This has required camera gear and other tools to create high quality content.  We want to be a quality, multi-faceted resource that meets you how you want to be met!

Your contributions help us remain ad-free and entirely absent of any affiliate linking programs!  We want to be a site you can trust, one that you don’t have to worry about clicking on links or wondering if we’re secretly selling your information.

Plus, your contributions encourage us to further develop high quality content for you!

We can’t thank you enough for your interest in helping us to become an even better resource for every northern gardener!

You are a high quality human and we are grateful for your patronage!
