The big success of the wood burning stoves kickstarter got me thinking about whether there might be some other "easy home runs" that Paul could do in that vein to get the rest of the way to $100k (if the stoves project doesn't quite make it). I've listened to almost all of the podcasts, and there were a number of things in there that stuck out for me that I would be willing to pay to learn more about. I thought we could brainstorm a thread of things that lots of people would be interested in, and maybe one of them would be something that would be easy enough to tackle that it could be the final $30k for him. Here are my main ideas:

* Polyculture gardening how-to: I'd love to see a couple of hours on the ins and outs of polyculture gardening - mainly, how to do it efficiently (plan,plant,maintain,harvest,replant), and also how to do it for maximum benefit to the plants' health.

* Wofati construction - the idea of the wofati is very interesting to me, I'd love to see one built and documented from start to finish. My impression is that with an excavator and a few helpers, this could be a quick project.

* HUSP research center - I've seen kickstarters launched for other kinds of communities, maybe we could just go straight for the goal (raise $40k to get the HUSP project launched)

* hugelkultur deep dive - as much as I've read about and experimented with hugelkulture, I still don't feel that I've got it 100% "right" and I'd gladly buy a detailed video course on the ins and outs of it in different soils, climates, etc

Those are what's bumping around in my head, any other ideas that might help for the final push?

I think the information in the podcasts would make a pretty good book. Just need someone who is a really fast keyboarder !
