The kickstarter is live!

"Low Tech Laboratory Movie 2"











The Permaculture Technology Jamboree 2023 was a resounding success! The Wheaton Labs community, in collaboration with expert instructors and enthusiastic attendees, created innovative artifacts that are redefining the potential of what a permaculture perspective can offer humanity—surpassing the expectations set by past events.

The team present at the event captured an extensive amount of footage, far exceeding our initial estimates. This comprehensive collection provides a detailed look at all the processes, from design to implementation, of these sustainable solutions. After reviewing the raw material, I am confident that we can craft an exceptional movie, sharing with the world the groundbreaking experiments conducted at Wheaton Labs.







and much more!

What do you say—Will you help us create a film?

Thanks Christopher!

Did everyone get a notification from Kickstarter about it going live, or just an email from Permies?
I got nothing from Kickstarter, even though I signed up for the notification.

OK, that's good, thanks Paul. Must be something with my email. I clicked through the link in the permies email, if you're tracking that as well, although it is a different email than the one I use for kickstarter.
