Many of you already know what Paul Wheaton, the trailboss, is up to these days. That's right; he's busy with his work in permaculture. After the success of his very popular Permaculture Playing Cards kickstarter, which are now available on Amazon, Paul continues spreading the word about Permaculture. He recently spoke at a TEDx event where he briefly explained some of his experiments. The recording of that event is available here (Paul's talk starts at 02:45:00 in that video). Other than that, Paul has just started a new kickstarter where he's proposing a 3-DVD set of a workshop on Permaculture Earthworks and Hugelkultur Garden. The kickstarter is currently in the funding phase and already has seen around 200 odd people pledging their support. If you are interested in Paul's work, you should definitely take a look at Paul's site and the forums it hosts (since Paul owns that site, folks there follow the same "Be Nice" rule, like we do at coderanch, so feel free to participate!).
