Annie provided us with the following good news update:
WE DID IT!!!!!!!!! We got the 8000 Euros to save his spot in the program! Thank you so much for encouraging us!!! A very insane donor at the last minute gave us enough a big chunk of it and we were left speechless. At that point we were already coming up with Plan B. Anyway….so now we figure he is meant to do this. And somehow it will all work out.
East Sooke resident has an opportunity of a lifetime, and he’s seeking the funds that will enable him to take advantage of it.[sam id=”5″ codes=”true”]Jeremy Smith has been accepted into an M. Sc. Program with the University of Copenhagen, into their SUTROFOR (Sustainable Tropical Forestry) program.
Fund him here.
Smith is passionate about subsistence farming, and is a part of Sooke’s Food CHI and the Sunriver Community Gardens.
Jeremy is most passionate about the small scale subsistence farmers around the world struggling to feed their families and communities and wants to change his career to reflect that. He is someone who loves being connected to the land and who loves to get his hands in the dirt. In Guyana and Tchad, he often wished he had more knowledge to offer the farmers or that he learned what he learned earlier when it could be more effective. After researching long and hard, SUTROFOR was one of the two masters programs that were the best fit for his plans and that he applied for.
