About Libre Unschool

Welcome to Libre Unschool's Patreon! Libre Unschool, directed by Carbondale local Jessica Lynn,W
LIBRE UNSCHOOL'S PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS
Programs include Y'ALL ROCK CARBONDALE which hosts a week-long summer camp for girls, trans, and nonbinary youth in 4th - 12th grade where youth are immersed in social justice and arts workshops, learn to play an instrument, join a band, and perform live! Winter programming includes Rock Roulette, an adult rock camp for women, trans, and nonbinary folks to learn and play in a band for six-weeks. *YRC is developing online curriculum and structure to meet the demands of safely responding to COVID-19 while still continuing its important programming.

The Neighborhood Planting Project gives away free native fruit and nut trees every Spring to the southern Illinois region in effort to educate about food security, food autonomy, bioregional food systems, and address climate change through reforestation. 

The Washington Street Garden is in its 5th year operating on a reclaimed a vacant, backfilled downtown lot into a vibrant, overflowing garden with food and medicinals. Anyone can garden or harvest anytime, and those interested in doing more can join the dedicated members who maintain and plan the garden.

The Birch Street Food Forest is a project to reclaim another vacant, backfilled lot in the heart of Carbondale's northeast neighborhood. With the first plantings done in 2018, plus several dozen more trees and bushes in 2019, and more work slated before summer 2021 the food forest will produce fruit, nuts, berries, flowers, herbs, and with each species coming into production between the upcoming season and the next three years. 

Finally, Libre Unschool is offering fiscal sponsorship to the Carbondale Spring Food Autonomy Project which aims to create "a healthy, local system for growing and distributing food, made available to all — with preference for the most vulnerable to food insecurity — outside of the barriers posed by both the market and government food assistance programs." While the Carbondale Spring's reach goes far beyond the Food Autonomy project, Libre Unschool's mission to empower communities and develop right relationship with the land we're a part of makes the Food Autonomy Project a perfect program partner.

WAYS TO SUPPORT
While each of these programs runs on the steam of community donations and grants, Patrons support helps keep Libre Unschool's virtual doors open so we can continue to sponsor and support such a wide breadth of community-engaged projects and programs.

By contributing monthly (or annually) you are ensuring the continuation of all of these much needed radical, community-building programs for Carbondale, and southern Illinois at a time when authentic community is needed most. Check out our tiers of support to see how we look forward to thanking you and welcoming you into our community building efforts.

Goals
$4.30 of $250 per month
If we reach and keep $250 per month (which means we're pledged at our annual goal!), we'll throw a very large and very awesome thank you party/feast in the fall of 2020 inviting all our patrons to celebrate our first year of streamlined fundraising success!
