Shawn spent the most formative years of his life working at a summer camp where he quickly gained a passion for nature and for building a better world. Struggling to see how his future career in computer engineering was going to solve these big problems, he decided to leave it behind and dedicate himself to finding practical solutions that people can implement in their backyards. Shawn looks forward to starting his own homestead in southern Manitoba in the next few years, where he plans to implement many of the techniques laid out in his upcoming book and come up with a few more solutions along the way.

Hi Rua, can you please post in the private support forum? There will be a few others with the same question. I'll be happy to answer your question there.

Hi Franklin,

Since this thread got to be so big, we are moving all support to a private forum devoted specifically to supporting this kickstarter. If you are logged in, you can start a new thread with your questions here:

Robert, I see that you have posted in the better world book private support forum. Thanks!

For anyone else who stumbles past this post, just a reminder that we are trying to move all support-related questions to this private forum:

https://permies.com/f/370/bwb-kickstarter

That way it is much easier to organize and much easier for you to see if we have already addressed an issue.

So. I upgraded a few posts ago to the 100$ level on this thread.  Got confirmation... Thank You!

Received an email about 48Hour thingy on Monday.   So I went to look for some goodies to make sure I am in at the right level... Saw the link for the link for in the Book thread "Clean your home with edible cleaners "  Thought I  would make sure I got access to it.

When I got to that page, it said I had to pay.   A comment in that page said to go here:  "This book was offered as a stretch goal for the Better Would Book kickstarter.  Paul and Shawn are handling everything and they have a a thread for all the questions about the kickstarter and rewards"

looked thru all the posts for it.   Looked in my ledger. nothing I could figure out to retrieve it and not listed in ledger...  

No hurry.   just want to make sure I can access my candy even though Upgraded late...

If I need to do something else, let me know.

Thanks!

Hi Rick,

Since we fixed you all up after we had sent out some of the rewards, we'll have to come back once we're done processing everyone else en masse. I have you on the list to receive rewards as we hand them out moving forward and I have you on the list of people who will need a few things handed out manually later.

I'd still like a couple digital copies, so do you need to know the split to determine the added shipping cost?



US shipping for the $100 level is $15, regardless of the number of physical books. You can pay here:
