All these goodies (over 50 if you count the ones that aren't early bird) keep make me thinking of Paul as Santa, with his sleigh of goodies!

You will!

So glad you created this kickstarter!  I'm in for $50.

What a wild and wacky wofati greenhouse grey water recycling system!

I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

Will there not be a physical dvd buying option, like in previous kickstarter campaigns?

According to the Kickstarter FAQ, there will be physical DVDs offered at a later time.

I didn't see about this until now. I was really interested in the early bird stuff. Shucks.

Possible to add that in for support at any higher tiers, perhaps?

Please help me to understand how we can do better at letting you know next time.

question -  when will be granted access to the earlybird goodies ? I'm almost as excited for them as for the finished movie!

The kickstarter ends on july 24.  14 days after that we get the funds and a list of who all put funds in.  So ...  August 7?   My guess is that some of the first earlybird stuff will be going out to folks around the 7th to the 10th ... or so?

I actually found out about it on Facebook, I think. I pop in here mostly for specific info and insights on plants. I'm sure there's no problem in how well it was promoted here, I just wasn't here at the time, is all.

Facebook's a real booger about showing people our posts. We'd posted at least three times about the kickstarter and Early Bird Goodies, but facebook only showed the posts to maybe 2,000 people total--and we have 6,000 followers! I find it really frustrating that facebook does stuff like that, because I follow pages so I can know what's going on--and facebook doesn't even show me their posts (but, you know, it likes to show me the exact same post I've seen three times, for no real reason. Maddening!) And, to make matters worse, I'm pretty sure facebook shows our posts to probably the same core people, so if we post the same thing multiple times, those people will think we're spammy. And, we don't want to be spammy--we just want people to know about things they might be interested in. Sigh.

Nicole, Facebook censors many other things too... guns, controversial topics and opinions, etc.
I was never a twitter user, but Parler doesn’t censor, and neither does MeWe. Maybe having some sort of presence on those apps/sites, and letting everyone know that permies/Paul are on there at least for important announcements could be a better/an alternative option that is more reliable?

We haven't set up a Paul Wheaton page on MeWe. I'm pretty sure I can do that. I don't know ANYTHING about Parler. But, even if we made those accounts, the hard thing is keeping them maintained. Paul has a twitter account that went unused for years because no one was managing it. I think there's even a permies instagram account somewhere, but we don't even know how to access it. People who are on permies really just like being on permies (I don't blame them, it really is awesome here!). I have a MeWe account, but I always forget to go on there. I did share the kickstarter in a MeWe group, but I haven't spent anytime getting acquainted with how MeWe works or how to get a MeWe page known and liked---are there even pages on MeWe???

These social media sites all take time to get used to and to get a feel for the vibe. I don't understand Reddit, or Twitter, or Instagram or Pinterest, or whatever-that-new-social-media is that all the younger people are on. You almost need a full-time person managing all these sites, and who wants to do that?! Most of us just want to grow food and raise chickens

Parler most certainly does censor, just not for political speech.  They will actively censor accounts that they have reason to believe are not who they claim to be, as misrepresenting the positions of another person (by pretending to be that person) is a violation of their terms of service.

But I can't imagine Paul being censored there.

Unfortunately, all opinions are political these days; so I left all the standard social media sites years ago, and I nuked my accounts as I left.  I quit them before quitting was cool!
