Paul's recent comments about funding new projects hit home to me. I think many of us realize that Paul has given up his prior job and devoted himself to spreading the word and helping advance permaculture technology. By doing so, he's given up a guaranteed income stream that probably took much less time than he devotes now.
Being able to use this forum, and viewing the various videos, etc, is of great value to me and many others. I probably would even pay a yearly membership fee to continue using this service.
