Different book.

The Permaculture experience book is about content from the PEP/PEX forum here:

https://permies.com/f/178/



Also is the 'Secret inner circle forum' the same as the kickstarter private forum, as if it is I am having trouble accessing it, it keeps telling me that I don't have "sufficient privileges to access the forum".



Two different forums.   You have access to the support forum.   We have not yet added people to the secret inner circle forum.


Also so far I have received gift codes for Cooking with a Rocket Oven and the Hugelkultur microdoc, have I missed anything yet? As Im still getting a handle of all the emails and permie forum etc.



That sounds spot on to me!

megan

All kickstarter support needs to happen in this thread.  

1 - there is a good chance that somebody can reply much faster here
2 - you can look to see if your problem has already been solved
3 - getting your problem sorted out can help others
4 - since most of the stuff from the kickstarter will be managed through this site, we can look up your account to figure out problems (much faster!)
5 - there is a lot of work to be done and we are dividing it up amongst several people, your post here helps to coordinate between everybody.
6 - if you have a problem we are struggling to understand, we can rope in others to help
7 - this list is just the beginning of a long, long list.  Please keep all your support needs to this thread.


This is the support thread for this kickstarter.

Once the kickstarter finishes, it will be a few weeks before kickstarter tells us "these are the people who have officially backed your project!" Once that happens we will send out a backer survey through kickstarter. The survey will have questions that will help us sort out the details on handing out all of the candy.

Once we have tabulated all of the survey results, we will start to hand out some of the candy. We'll put a checklist of sorts in this thread to keep everyone updated with what we have sent out and what is still on the list of things to send out.

When you are logged in you will see a link called "my stuff" at the top of every page.  If you click on that, it will give you a list of all the things you have so far.  This link should do the same thing (maybe bookmark it?)

If you have any trouble getting any of the kickstarter candy, there might be some helpful clues in this thread. Please read to see if your question has already been answered before you post.

Thanks again for being a part of this kickstarter!

Hi I am a US$5 backer on kickstarter, I wanted to confirm that the 'Permaculture Exeperience eBook' is the same as the kickstarter 'Building a better world in your backyard book'. Also is the 'Secret inner circle forum' the same as the kickstarter private forum, as if it is I am having trouble accessing it, it keeps telling me that I don't have "sufficient privileges to access the forum". Also so far I have received gift codes for Cooking with a Rocket Oven and the Hugelkultur microdoc, have I missed anything yet? As Im still getting a handle of all the emails and permie forum etc.

Thanks!, Megan

My thought was having wood in contact with the ground, and when wet, is optimal for termites, unless it is a hardwood.

I might be wrong, that's why I would love all your feedback.



Do you have a problem with termites? If you have a nearby structure that's termite susceptible my guess is the termites move into the hugel mound and natural predators keep them in check.
I personally don't mind termites (if I have them in my mound) because they help decompose the logs.  Good luck, Huxley.☺



Thanks for your reply Huxley, we have had old termite damage to some fencing prior to moving in (we have been here since Jan 2018), and a tree had current termite activity which has since been sorted. We do get annual termite inspections, and I guess I am a little paranoid given the damage they can do Im going to do more reading on Hugelkultur Beds method. Thanks, Megan

Hi Paul thanks for your reply.

I am confused however, where else am I supposed to login too if this site isn't it?

Thanks,

Megan

Hi I had received a link for the kickstarter private forum however am having trouble accessing.

When i was registering it said my email address was already registered, however there was nothing there.

Now it is asking me to add the secondary email address in which the email was sent to, however its all the same email address.

I had sent an email to helper@permies.com however received a reply to put it up in the forum instead.

Thanks,

Megan
