    Keeping aside his Java skills, Paul Wheaton these days is busy on his farm, spreading the word about permaculture. A few months back he had his kickstarter for a DVD set of "Wood Burning Stoves 2.0" successfully funded and now those DVDs are available. He recently came up with yet another idea for spreading the word about permaculture, in the form of permaculture playing cards and had the kickstarter for that successfully funded, backed by over a 1000 backers! Those wonderful cards are expected to be available right before the holiday season to gift them out to your loved ones! For more about permaculture visit Paul's website and for latest news from Paul's farm, visit
