I have been so busy with "permaculture world" here at  my home, I haven't been too active on the permaculture forums (bad me! need to make more time!) That being said, I stumbled upon something today, and I made a point to post this-since I wholeheartedly support Permies.com-

I wanted to let the empire know that your awesome article about LAWNS- has quite a few of the affiliate links- not working. (I know because I was clicking through to buy items-and hit on "unavailable" or an error page from Amazon) I know that affiliate links help in terms of commissions (albeit small I know) but since I was looking up lawn related advice (trying to fall sow here in new mexico) and came across the article- loved how it was written, and I got lots of great info- I wanted to bring it to the attention, as even though I am a permies "person"- I click on the "lawn care for lazy people" during a google search for "fall sow lawn, organic lawn tips"- so perhaps there are others out there like me who have this on the autumnal permaculture brain.

** a lot of the items listed weren't totally unavailable, they just had links that were broken- an example would be Yarrow seeds- It came up defunct, but then I searched "organic yarrow seeds" and another supplier came up. I figure that by clicking on that new link, I would effectively severe the affiliate link commission for Paul- (so I haven't ordered yet! because I'd love for Paul to get a commission on those seeds, and that lawn mower!)

My Best, and to spongey comfy feeling under the feet lawns!

Hey Jen, thanks for bringing this to our attention! I've gone through those links and updated them.

That's the trouble with Amazon of course - suppliers run out all the time and leave the Amazon biz, so we just have to constantly double check that products are still there. I appreciate you working so hard to make sure Permies gets a little kickback from your shopping!
