Author Anne Lamott says these are the three essential prayers: Asking for Help, expressing Thanks, and exclaiming “Wow” about something inspiring.

Here at On Pasture, we’ve had a “Help, Thanks, Wow” kind of Fall and you are the reason why.

First we asked for help. We needed $15,000 from readers as our grant match for the Conservation Innovation Grant from the NRCS that helps fund On Pasture. Without it On Pasture can’t happen.

And you did it!

Readers responded to our call for help and on November 20 we were able to report that you’d made the match! We said “Thank You!” then, but we’re so grateful that we’re not sure we said it big enough. So thank you to everyone who pitched in. You Rock!

In fact – this is also one of our WOW moments. Support has continued to come in! You don’t know how much it means to us to have your support and backing. THANK YOU!

And Here’s To The On Pasture Community!

We also want to say Thanks and WOW to all the authors and readers that have made On Pasture not just a place to get great information, but a community where we can learn and grow together. We’ve got 156 authors (so far), and thanks to your comments and emails, we’ve been able to figure out what kind of information will be most helpful along the way. (And if you’d like to help us with a little more directions, here are some questions we’ve got about our future direction.)

WOW!

It turns out we have other people to thank as well, so next week we’ll be telling you more about the people who make On Pasture happen.

Until then, we hope that you have a “Help, Thanks, Wow” week.

Thank you for reading!

Kathy and Rachel
