Toby,

Thank you so much for being at Permies this week answering our questions.

I find that few Permaculture books or DVDs are set in American climates, which was why I was thrilled to find your book in my library.

Have you ever thought about filming DVDs on Permaculture in action here in America? This could possibly be either a companion DVD to Gaia's Garden or something else entirely.

Also, I'd love to see a Kindle version of Gaia's Garden.

Thanks again!

David Galloway

A Kindle version of GG is available. I've been told that in some versions the photos are small or missing, but Amazon will get you another version if that's the case. I've thought about making DVDs but unless I want to do Youtube quality, to do a decent job would cost $25,000-50,000 for 90 minutes of film and take me months, so I probably won't be doing that. Chelsea Green Publishing and I have talked about a follow-up book that looks at a dozen or so Pc sites, with maps and photos and plant lists of each. Might do that someday; it would be fun, so maybe a film version could come along with that.

Thanks for responding, Toby! I see I was looking at the first edition of GG on Amazon and not the second.

The new book idea sounds fun. If you end up doing that, you could always shoot video and put it up as a private YouTube video with a link in the book if you don't want to go to the expense of an actual filming crew.

Thanks again!
 
Why does your bag say "bombs"? The reason I ask is that my bag says "tiny ads" and it has stuff like this:
Groundnuts, Chestnuts, Elderberry, Comfrey+ from Interwoven Nursery
