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.
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.
P.P.O.Y.T. (Playfully pouncing on your toes.)

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.
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.
