You know how it goes. Sometimes, you start a project, and the project starts small. The snack bar operated out of a bread truck. The internet start-up masterminded from a dorm room bean bag chair. The nonprofit born from a diving trip and an unexpected gift.
Ambitious ideas paired with strong leadership have a tendency to grow. The snack bar moves into an honest to goodness building. That website start-up garners few hundred million users and moves into cutting edge offices in Silicon Valley. And the nonprofit, too, expands; attracting more donors (hello you!), planting more gardens and farms (hurray planet!), and working with more families (hello impact!).
Along the way, there’s bound to be some updating, and it’s not all trees and seeds here at Sustainable Harvest International. There’s some precise planning and implementation behind the success of our programs. That’s why this is a story about accounting.
