Hi everybody,

I'm running a kickstarter campaign for my new book, which is about the climate change-fighting potential of perennial crops and regenerative farming systems. I'm looking at all the world's climates and a huge range of perennial staple crops, including major crops and new things under development but not yet ready for prime time.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1115575313/writing-toolkit-for-climate-stabilization-with-tre

Love to have your support in the form of pre-buying a book or just passing the info along.

Thanks!
Eric

Hi Eric - I made a pledge and I am a member of permies.com but I don't think I went through this site to make the pledge. Would permies get credit for that?

Ah... bummer! I really wanted a copy of the book but the backer level that I could actually afford is all gone already. ($22 level). But I will share the link on my facebook page anyway so maybe some of my friends will get it and I can barrow it from them some time.

Hi everyone,

Way to go permies, in just a few days you pledged over $1,500. That's not counting at least a few of you who had already pledged. You've made your way into the dedication of the book.

I thought you might enjoy the latest excerpt I've posted, on the current status of perennial grain breeding (http://www.perennialsolutions.org/perennial-cereal-grains-a-promise-requiring-patience-and-prioritization).

Here's a photo of an ear of a perennial corn hybrid. We're clearly not there yet, but with enough funding the Land Institute could have perennial corn ready for field testing in a decade. This one was bred by my friend Craig Hepworth.
 
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
