Next, if we add three things to further the experiments, we find no change in the amount of people signing up. Nor do we find existing backers raising their pledges. But if we add things to the $100 level, we not only find existing backers raising their pledges, but we also find an increase in the number of people backing the kickstarter.
So, we are making the best out of what we have learned.
If I remember correctly, the previous kickstarter made more than $1000 a day? This time it seems to be going much slower after $45,000. Around $200 per day?
the greenhouse kickstarter hit $50,000!
We did it! We hit our first stretch goal! Now everybody supporting the kickstarter at $100 or higher is getting the eBook version of Mike Oehler's "Earth Sheltered Solar Greenhouse Book"!
More information about the book here:
And you can get both books plus the 6 hours of workshop video here:
The next stretch goal, at $55,000, is the movie "Living the Change" by Happen Films. A full movie about people living a permaculture life. Many flavors of Gert! Gardening, zero waste, food forest gardening, permaculture gardening, kids gardening, regenerative agriculture, gardening, carbon sequestration, reversing desertification, creating a more beautiful world, and gardening! See the trailer and more here:
If we get to $60,000 people will get David The Good's magnificent book "Compost Everything". A beautiful writing style makes it easy to get your head wrapped around all of the things that are compostable and a very long list of benefits to broadening your composting horizons! More about this lovely book here:
Drum roll goes here!
Davin Hoyt has offered his rocket oven plans as a stretch goal! Davin was here for the build and he did all the drawings for the Rocket Ovens movie. His plans turned out great! You can see a magnificent 3-D model and some samples of the plans here:
and the movie here:
The race continues! Now with spiffy prizes!
Jennifer and I are doing brainstorming for this kickstarter every day! And yesterday we came up with this idea of giving something awesome to the kickback champions:
- 42 seeds of Sepp Holzer grain (we got it established here
at Wheaton Labs with only 42 grains!) (you must be located
in the US)
- $50 in bitcoin
- A huckleberry pie (you must be located in the US)
- A gift code for the PDC & ATC footage
- A "message in a bottle" with lots of podcasts and videos (you must be located in the US)
You can see the full details here:
and the current champions here (Yury is now in first place!).
Taller? Wider? How hot is it?
There is a lot of discussion about the overall design, and there was so much discussion about the temperature monitoring equipment we started a new thread for that. See here and here for more info.

$70,000: The High Art and Sublt Scienc of Scrounging by James Juczak
$75,000: Sepp Holzer's 3-in-1 Permaculture documentaries (Farming, Terraces, and Aquaculture)
