Deep Ellum Community Association Needs Some Seed Money to Plant an Urban Garden

What they don't have is the money -- $25,000, to be precise, for everything from benches to sinks, lockers to lights. Which is why they've launched a group-funding effort via CrowdTilt, which is more or less like Kickstarter (complete with items offered at various levels of giving -- as in, $100 gets you a Deep Ellum Urban Gardens logo long sleeve shirt or hoodie, while $150 also snags an invite to a VIP dinner). Fund-raising efforts kicked off a few days ago, and already they're up to $1,190 with October 31 set as the deadline.
