Getting ready for the failure of this campaign


first of all - thank you for being here, and a happy new 2017!

This has been a great experience for me, and a wonderful lesson to learn:

"don't do crowdfunding without a large enough crowd that needs it" :D

With three days left it's unlikely that this will reach its target, but I'm playing to the very end.

There are two more podcast releases coming - one will be a write up from the Oxford Real Farming Conference last week, and the other, a short chat with the former leader of the UK Green Party - Natalie Bennett, which I recorded yesterday.

Both I will push out before the end of the crowdfunder, both will have a call to action.

we also have help from the Geoff Lawton team, who posted an article on soil foodweb I wrote on permaculture news They even included advertising banners across the site pointing to the crowdfunder - all for free to help (I have been helping with other stuff, and continue as much as I can).

All this may still be too late too little, but after it's done, I will be busy building other means to raise the funds, and will start learning as soon as I can buy the first module.

Not saying quits yet :D

best wishes!
