Have a question?
For all those many people who've asked me how to do Kickstarter in Canada. See my comment below for the answer to that question...
And i've also just heard of a site called indiegogo.com (that looks a whole lot like kickstarter) that's available for international projects.
Mail-order a copy of the book here:
Also... i'm way behind on setting up the on-line order form for this book so that you can mail order more copies. For the moment it's available through Urban Harvest in Toronto and will soon be up on the webstore of the Beehive Design Collective. i will be sure to post the link here once it's ready!
For all those who've asked me about how to run a kickstarter project from Canada... yes, you need a U.S.-based bank account and a U.S. credit card to set up the kickstarter account and amazon account to make this happen. Sorry to say I've not found any special way around this, but rather found a collaborator in the States who was able to help me with these missing pieces, as it's tricky to set up a U.S. bank account without being a resident. Hope this information helps!
My copies just arrived in Australia
Have just received the books.
I requested for the books to be shipped to Singapore and have not received them yet. Is anyone else experiencing delays?
Woo! took a while (a long while really...) but finally they got here(Netherlands)! absolutely great book :)
Hooray for mail being delivered again! I arrived home tonight to find my books. They look great!
Got my book, and it looks great. Thanks!
Just received my books and I LOVE THEM! You did such a great job, Lara! I just started planting 2 windowsill gardens - one at home and one at work. This helps a lot, thanks!!
Thanks for the Update Lara! My good wishes and support are being broadcast full tilt!!! S!
Hi, Congratulations on reaching your goal. Is it too late to request a copy of your book, I was one of your backers,
Thanks and good luck,
Woops! Sorry about that, just saw your message about when you'd be shipping and whatnot. Please disregard the comment below! Thanks again :)
Hi Lara, Congratulations on your great success!! I'm really looking forward to reading your book! Any idea when I might be able to expect it? (I live in Toronto) Thanks! Hazel
Iara, as the project is now closed to pledge, how can I be part of it and receive a copy in Brazil?
Hope you have a lot of success!
Hi Bruno, yes we'll ship to you in Brasil, thanks for asking!
Iara, is it possible to ship to Brazil? We have no taxes for books.
you certainly can grow plants on less sunny balconies - it's just a matter of choosing the right plants! Leafy greens and herbs are best in partial shade. More details in the book!
Looks good. But not all balconies face south. Can you grow plants on north-facing balconies? Or east or west facing?
Shipping books to Europe... yes, I can make it happen! Already got sponsors from around the world. Depending on the number of books, i *may* have to add a small amount for shipping costs but i'm hoping i won't have to do that. Thanks for asking.
Planning shipping to europe?
I've passed this link around. Hopefully with 50 days to go you'll cover the other $1070, I don't see why not!
I'm preparing to launch my own project and can't afford to donate at this time but this is a great concept. Best of luck!
wishing there was a ebook (digital delivery / pdf) pledge for like 5-8$
Have mentioned your project on my blog and will write something else in a month or so: http://www.cubitsorganics.com/2011/02/seedy-sunday-toronto-recap.html
Hey Lara! I posted that I backed your project on twitter and it was then featured in The #Veg Daily newsletter online! Yay! http://paper.li/tag/Veg
