Sweetwater Collaborative Launches IndieGogo End-of-Year Fundraising Campaign

Sweetwater Collaborative has launched an end-of-year fundraising campaign, “Getting the most out of our water, together,” via the crowdfunding website IndieGogo.

Sweetwater Collaborative seeks to raise capital needed to further its goals of ensuring water security and resilience for everyone in Santa Barbara, during times of drought or plentiful rain.

A goal of $10,000 has been set, with the campaign ending on Dec. 31.

“We are excited about our year-end campaign, and we hope that the local community recognizes and supports our work,” said Sweetwater Collaborative coordinator Barbara Wishingrad said. “We thank those who have already contributed.

"Although the recent rains are gratefully welcomed and do help to ease the drought crisis we are currently in, most of this rain just picks up pollution and runs off into the sea. Fortunately, simple solutions exist to capture and retain most of this rain in our yards, and it is one of Sweetwater’s goals to help the community implement these solutions.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
