Yes, we have been discussing all those options, and it looks like a kickstarter is in the works to get started this week. Believe me that we are so excited for all this to happen, and to share with everyone, but it just requires some planning to ensure success & safety for all, which is our priority. That being said, as soon as I get a link for the kickstarter, I will make sure to update everyone, probably in a different thread regarding that topic.

Then all the rest of it would fill a dozen more DVDs.
Mass produced DVDs sell for $20 a pop. And limited production DVDs sell for $30 a pop. How many of you are willing to shell out $400 for the full DVD set of this workshop, when you can attend the real thing for much less and be able to actually ask questions?
I don’t like what I am seeing here.... I thought "this site" was to share information... not sell it?
I have the money, time & want to go to one of these seminars... But something feels amiss...
"share the love not the information" seems really wrong to me...
I am very disappointed in your direction you have chosen here....
"to Tinker or not to tinker, that is the question!"
If you build it better than the one profiting from it, don’t tell them, they'll get pissed! "I challenge anyone to challenge me" ... Murf! "I am responsible for the comment in this comment section"
I encourage you to travel the world and teach these classes for free.
I whole heartedly support those that charge something too. If you think the price is too high, don't go.
Finally, if you don't like me, or my site, then you can leave. This site is about the angles of permaculture that I like, including the aspects of profit. Frankly I don't like folks attempting to shame those that are operating within my comfort zone. If I see this sort of thing from you again, I will lock your account.
When you say "hot water", do you mean, for domestic hot water (eg. showers, dishwashing, etc), or sufficient volume for an in-floor hydronic heating system?
Fred, Sorry somehow I missed this earlier
domestic water is something that everyone uses and I think is a key component to adress
I have a background in radiant and hydronic heat, and in my opinion it is one of the most efficient ways to move energy(heat), and it also allows the "mass" in rocket mass heater to be increased and transported throughout the entire home/shop.
We are just over a week away from the workshop, and we are excited.
For all of those who have registered thankyou. We just sent out an email to all of you, if you could let us know that you recieved it that would be great.
Thanks to everyone who has shown interest, we look forward to hosting/teaching more workshops in the future including RMH, timber framing, small scale sawmilling, solar/alternative energy/offgrid/electrical, and other eco building techniques as well.
