WHAT IS CROPSWAP?

We made an app called Cropswap that allows people to trade fruits and vegetables with their neighbors.  You can download it RIGHT NOW in the apple app store.  Check out this sweet video to be caught up to speed.  


Our mission is a world where yards aren't WASTED and EVERYONE grows food.  Our app makes this easy but there is still a huge KNOWLEDGE gap!  People simply don't know how to grow food or are intimidated to do so.

WHAT IS CROPSWAP AMERICA?
We realized the best way to remedy this was traveling across the US, profiling the COOLEST gardeners and farmers and making a show about it.  We want you to feel empowered and inspired to grow food with the BEST, most CUTTING EDGE information on the planet. 

WHAT IS THIS WEBSITE "PATREON" HERE?
Patreon is one of the coolest and most honorable platforms on the internet right now.  Patreon gets it's name from the word "Patron" ("a person who gives financial or other support to a person, organization, cause, or activity.").  Patreon allows you to VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLAR and support causes you believe in the same way you might with your favorite local business.  We strive to be worthy of your patronage.  :)

And it's REALLY awesome because YOU get stuff out of it too.  For each "level" of contribution, there are different incentives you will get.  You can get a rad T-shirt, exclusive Google hangouts and best of all, FULL access to our behind the scenes video feed.  We will be posting rad tutorials ONLY available to Patrons as well as travel stuff.  We want to entertain AND educate.

WHAT WILL WE USE THE FUNDS FOR?
We are some of the most FRUGAL dudes EVER.  Though we handle most of the production stuff ourselves (writing, shooting, editing, graphic design), we STILL have expenses that most companies don't have.  We are running an international app....with 2 people!  We have to pay for crazy expensive servers and development costs.  Show wise, though we do everything, we have to pay for gas and hard drives and lots of other TV stuff.  As you will see, we don't skimp on quality.  This aint no bedroom vlog.  This is a FULL production show.

Oh and one more thing....

We have been listening to people all over the world and BY FAR, the #1 thing we get asked is "WHEN IS THE ANDROID VERSION COMING OUT!?"  We can't tell you HOW BADLY we want this too but building on a whole other system is COSTLY to say the least.  By supporting us on Patreon, your funds go DIRECTLY towards our Android build.  If you want cropswap on Android, THIS is how you make it happen.

HOW MUCH WILL I BE CHARGED?
This is COMPLETELY up to you.  You will dictate exactly HOW MUCH you want to pledge to the production of our show.  We will be creating 4 full episodes a month (1 a week).  So if for example, you sign up to contribute $3 per video, you would be charged $12 a month.  We will release other tiny little videos but won't count those as "episodes" and won't charge ya for them. :)  If you only want to pay for 2 videos a month, you can TOTALLY do that!  It's really clear and easy with Patreon we promise.
