Paul, I hope I am putting this in the right place. I remember you or someone mentioning getting money with http://kickstarter.com and because if you don't make your goal that NO money comes to you, I thought I would mention a couple other ways.

http://indiegogo.com
http://gofundme.com

I am sure there is more!

I think there are a couple of threads on "tinkering with this site" that might be better for sharing those links.

Oh! Try clicking on the "feed the empire" link that is showing up on every page--it's right over the hugelkultur video on my screen.

I am posting here because this thread seems more specific; I don't want to break the rhythm of Paul's feed the empire thread!

I saw an article recently on Kickstarter and similar sites, and one that was mentioned for science research was www.petridish.org.
Seems like a number of the projects we do through Permies could be considered as applied ecology or conservation research.

-edited to correct the spelling of petri. -EKW
- edited to add note: I don't see any ecology or conservation projects being funded although the categories exist. Looks like a couple of mainstream geeks trying to duplicate Kickstarter's model - they don't fund unless the goal is met, just like Kickstarter.
 
You didn't tell me he was so big. Unlike this tiny ad:
