Here is some stuff about playback issues:

I tried it and it made things "less bad" for me. But still not as smooth as youtube.

Doug, I've just finished setting up everyone who selected this reward with streaming access to the film.

Best,

Hi! Just checked to see if I have access to the streaming after getting an email that they are now for sale. Not sure what's up. I think I missed an email. The last one I received was the second one with podcast links. Did I miss one? Thanks!

I don't know if this is the right place to discuss content, but I've got a question about a portion of the Hugelkultur video.

In the segment that was filmed in Montana, Paul is discussing strategies for keeping a lemon tree from freezing, and one idea he mentions is to surround the tree with several wells.

Are these wells part of the same hydrological system and connected at the surface, or are they independent from one another?

In other words, if, hypothetically, all the water were to freeze, would the ice formation be several individual columns, or would it rather resemble a desk or table where each column was a leg of the table?

I hope my question makes sense.

Great videos by the way, thanks for making them.

The key is that we will be doing a lot of experiments.

Once of the experiments is to drill a well maybe 30 feet deep. It will be dry. Then we put the casing in the well and cap the well. I predict that the well cap will exude above freezing temperatures when it is well below freezing outside.

On Jack Spirko's show today he talks about having watched the first two DVDs and says:

They're awesome. Probably the best thing Paul has ever done.

As I'm new in this forum, first of all I'd like to say "hello" to everybody, and especially also "thanks!" for the great insights. Special thanks also to the one that made it possible: Paul Danke schön! (I'm french speaking by the way, in case you wonder about "odd" sentences

Ok, here is my question (with a bit of background included): I've taken 3 PDC's with 3 very different teachers: Rhamis Kent (Geoff-earthworks-and-swale's line), Darren Doherty (cows-save-the-world's line) and Rowe Morrow (Zones-1-and-5-are-central's line). All 3 were great, and actually I've been able to learn quite different philosphies. After Rhamis' PDC, my first one, I was totally motivated to do earthworks everywhere! Then I took Darren's PDC and he mentionned swales no more than 3 or 4 times, of course, Darren's stuff is keyline! When I asked him about doing a lot swales to rehydrate the landscape, he told me something I'll never forget: "Mother Earth doesn't need plastic surgery!" wow! I've been quite impressed and started to look more into cell grazing, holistic management and keyline.

Now I'm in Nicaragua, in a very dry region, and farmers are loosing their crops and animals because of the drought. Applying Darren's way here is tricky: in order to do keyline, you need a special plough, and people here don't even have a tractor. To do cell grazing or HM you may need quite a lot of animals, farmers are rich here if they have more than 3 cows... Probably Darren could figure out something to do, and in Octobre I may take a course about Keyline in Honduras with a good friend of him, Eugenio Grass, I'm looking forward to learn how to apply keyline in the poor Central American context. But by then, I'm convinced the most promising way is to do some "plastic surgery"... I've looked at Sepp Holzer's awesome videos, and he DID quite a lot of surgery with his terraces... well, look at the result: extremely diverse and productive landscape, waterproof, resilient. That's what needs to be done here!

Ok, slowly I'm getting to the point. In order to know more about earthworks, I have two options: Paul's great DVD set or Geoff's online course (a friend of mine took it and I might be able to get access the earthworks online course). I don't know if someone saw both (Paul, you probably did), and I'd like to know which one you'd recommend for my particular context: Nicaragua, hot dry climate, heavy clay soils,... If I were still in Europe, I'd know that Paul's DVD would be perfect, but here? I know Geoff may have more experience in this kind of climate, but I don't know if this is reflected in his online course on earthworks.

Ok folks, muchas gracias! The Domination is growing

Greg,


I've watched the entire Geoff course, though not the earthworks bonus part yet. I've also watched Paul's hugel DVD, but not the swale/pond ones yet.

In your situation I would probably try to borrow Geoff's course DVDs... The bonus earthworks course probably applies but the rest of the course is also important. There are chapters on water, earthworks, soils, climatic design, trees. I think you'll find them all relevant to your climate.

Even if you've taken other PDC's before, I think you'll learn a lot from his teachings.

Sam,

thanks for your reply. Good to know that you've both sets of information on earthworks, maybe you can give us a review when you've looked at them.

I've seen some of Geoff's DVD during the first PDC, I can remember of food forest, one where he was building a pond in a property, soil. Very good stuff indeed, totally valuable, along with Geoff's free videos. The thing is I'd like to "master" earthworks, particularly ponds, because here in the mountains of Nicaragua, they REALLY need to store water. The government promised to build some, but I fear where they're gonna put them. So if I have the skills to build a pond (or at least to explain the machine driver how to do it), I could combine my permaculture knowledge and add lots of value to the wonderful feature.

Probably pond making is not rocket science, but I'd like to know the tricks to avoid any damage.

All the best

Well, Geoff has a whole chapter on water where he mostly talks about building ponds and then he talks about it more in his earthworks bonus. For someone like me who is not planning to build a pond any time soon the water chapter was a bit "pond overload".

Geoff is mostly in front of the whiteboard though (he draws really well btw). But it's good to understand the theory of how to build a pond.


I've only watched the hugelkultur part of Paul's DVDs, but I imagine the pond one is similar. There's a bit of theory, but a good part of it is seeing a group of people doing it. So in a way it would be a bit complementary to Geoff's videos. Less theory, more action, more visuals. And some golden nuggets of info and food for thought from Paul.

I would start with Geoff's course and consider complementing with Paul's DVDs. I'm pretty sure Geoff is ok with lending DVD's/showing videos to friends as long as you're not making copies or putting them online.

Rick,

At the $60 streaming option, you get the streaming version of the WDG 3-DVD set, but you don't get permaculture orchard.

They have all been sent out. If you don't have yours, then, yes, you should be concerned.

Send email to minion at richsoil.com. That will go to sam. He has kept careful track of everybody's package. We even sprung for tracking on all packages.

About four days ago my long dormant ulcer decided to stop by and say hello. And you mention adding a book?



Take one to two tbsp's of Apple Cider Vinegar with a water chaser after meals to help rid the indigestion. For me it's instant relief and I'm down to maybe needing this maybe once per year. Antacids do not help. Vinegar is a home remedy that actually works.

You can currently buy them here.

I need to get them out to amazon so folks can do the affiliate thing.

I'm also thinking about getting a version set up at scubbly.

20 dollars cheaper on Scubbly!? well, I'm willing to buy this stuff, but also I want the Duke to get his fair amount of money, so in this case, you recommend Scubbly or Vimeo?

I also see that it says "low res" on Scubbly, what does that mean?

Finally: it looks like the files on Scubbly are downloadable, are those on Vimeo also downloadable?

The files on scubbly are 640x360. The idea is that you can download them, play them on your computer or your phone or tablet or whatever. They are a little smaller, so they take up less space on your stuff. And, of course, how you play them is up to you and your apps.

The vimeo stuff is for streaming only. A higher resolution than the actual DVDs. But you can only see them when you have a good connection to the internet.

Not sure if this is the best place to post this but I recently bought the World Domination Gardening downloads (I like to watch stuff on a tablet on the train) and have to say I really love them. Small money for an amazing amount of information. I guess the format is not for everyone but personally, I loved seeing Paul in action and actually seeing the theories put into practise. his stream of consciousness is a joy to behold and I also enjoy that he embraces the full beauty of the English language. I found these videos to be much more useful than a pure, theoretical instructional. For the small amount of money paid I feel like there is a great deal of value. Where else can you get over 6 hours of content for $45 (about £20 for us England folks).

I am on the latest Rocket Mass heater kickstarter and will doubtless be a contented sucker for any future kickstarters Paul puts out.

Paul, keep fighting the good fight in comfy overalls and the snug reassurance that you are doing fine work.

Looks like I lost access to the WDG, its not showing in my vimeo anymore. Can I get set up again? I also lost all the podcast a while ago and would like to get those again if possible.

I contributed at the $60 level for WDG and the $60 level for the Rocket Mass Heater

Thanks!

Jace,

You were sent an email with links to the WDG vids. Click on the one for hugelkultur.

I am looking at the hugelkultur vid right now. It looks like it is still set up to show you the vid.

Awesome, I was able to track it down. Somehow I got stuck before looking at the page to buy the videos.

Paul, is there a particular reason the videos aren't available for download on vimeo? It would be nice to save them away for a plane ride with no wifi.

Still looking for someone who can hook me up with all the podcast as well, I lost those awhile ago and am itching to listen!

The podcast stuff is provided super freaky cheap as part of the kickstarters as "bonus candy" because we can make it available en masse on a time limited basis.

It is a bit like you went to the store and bought a gumball for nickel. Only the gumball was awesome and ended up giving you 20 gumballs, three sandwiches, some bacon and a plastic decoder ring. You ate a bit of it and tucked the rest away. Six months later you cannot find the bit that you tucked away and tracked down the gumball vendor to say that you want to repeat the transaction, only this time you don't want to put in the nickel.

For me, I thought I worded it pretty clearly: we offer this stuff as bonus candy for the kickstarter, and we do so much for so freaky cheap because it is an en masse electronic one time thing. So if you are feeling like we should provide support for the bonus candy, then I feel like we did a poor job of explaining that in the kickstarter and need to improve that message.

On the other hand, for the primary product, I do feel we need to provide excellent support to get that product to you.

Okay, all that said: for the streaming version of WDG, we will gladly make sure all that stuff is still working for you. Bonus candy for WDG: that was a couple of years ago - I think it is fair that the bonus candy stuff for that needed to get all resolved a long time ago. BUT! You also supported our latest kickstarter (THANKYOUVERYMUCH!) which came with even MORE candy and we have not yet wrapped up that project. Make sure that cassie has your info and what you are missing. I think she is figuring that she will do one more shot of en masse processing in a few months.

I like the idea that we provide super duper awesome customer service especially to our kickstarter supporters. At the same time, when we give this stuff out, we are trying to find ways to give people more candy without botching the whole project into huge expenses. So at the beginning of the project I suggest giving oodles of stuff away and many other people say "you will be killed by support costs." and I say "noooooo - we will tell people, in advance, that this is an en masse thing only. They will understand! It will all work out! Trust me! "

So this thread is about WDG. I hope you agree that we are all set here and everything is right as rain. Yes? And, through the RMH kickstarter, you can work with cassie to verify that you are on the magic list to get the last round of en masse candy. So that is right-as-rain also. Yes? All good?
