I just saw this shared on Facebook. I know absolutely nothing about the book or the author but I thought I’d share it here. It could be a good’un but it is up to you whether you take note or not. In other words,buyer beware… 🙂
The Facebook event address is https://www.facebook.com/events/344493922320506
Robin Clayfield’s invaluable and much loved book is now 17 years old and has been out of print for over 12 years, though it’s still been available as a poorer quality photocopied version.
Support Robin’s ‘Community Sourcing’ of $12,000 to Reprint without having to mortgage her home or be part of a Crowd Funding campaign, which may or may not reach the target amount (you don’t get the money if you don’t reach your target).
Robin’s set herself a time-frame of printing in early August ready to launch at ‘The Real Food Fest’ in Maleny, Q’ld on the first weekend of September. Time is of the essence. She has 6 weeks to raise the finds and is offering a great deal to pre-purchase rather than just asking for money. Receive 2 of these books that are in the process of having a full layout and typographic edit plus a new cover. Keep one yourself and have one as a gift to give someone or if you already have Robin’s book and love it, purchase these 2 as gifts for family and friends.
Ways you can support :-
** Pre-purchase 2 copies of the book, posted anywhere in Australia for $70 AUD (Retail price will be $40 each)
** Pre-purchase 2 copies of the book, posted anywhere in the world for $100 AUD (Retail price will be $40 each plus postage usually $40 approx)
(She needs 250 people to take up this offer to print the books and post 250 parcels)
** Tithe, gift, donate any amount to support her reach her goal and offer this resource to the world again in a professional and quality way.
** Loan her any amount of money which will be repaid as the books sell and before any profit is made for the books.
** Share this on FaceBook, on your wall, through your networks, pages and groups, by email, by word of mouth. Help and support Robin as a way to say thank you to her for the decades of support she’s given to Permaculture, Edible Gardening, Environmental Change, Community Building, Creative Education and Teacher Training of Permaculture, Environment and Social Change Activists.
** ‘Like’ posts you see about the reprint, comment, share on FaceBook 🙂
** Send Robin a testimonial about the book if you have a copy of the original. (Someone said one sold for over $100 on Ebay recently, WOW!)
** Offer to come to Crystal Waters in early September to help package 250 parcels with Robin and Friends. Lunch and Yummy food will be provided and great music to pack by.

Hi Vanessa, I asked my Facebook friend who posted about it and this is her reply…
I read it once long ago, in a friend’s library. It looks at permaculture from the kitchen out. A really good intro to the subject.
THese guys say it better than me
