There are any number of crowdfunding sites out there, but the two that seem to have the most permaculture related projects are Kickstarter and Indigogo. I have noticed a strong preference towards Kickstarter here and was wondering if something about them is proving more appealing or if it is just the site that happened to be picked without one being better than the other. I only ask because it seems that Kickstarter has less permaculture on it and has less categories where permaculture projects might fall under.

Either one are viable platforms for permaculture projects. The big difference between the two is that with Kickstarter you have to reach your financial goal to be able to get your funding. With Indiegogo you can get whatever is pledged even if you don't reach your goal. Kickstarter is more famous than Indiegogo so that's helpful as far as picking up random funders/backers that you don't directly promote to.
