Project aim:

Please help us raise enough money to keep our new low-cost crowdfunding site free for anyone desiring to live gently and cleverly on our Earth.


We recognise that there are many people out there with practical ideas for caring for people and our planet, but they often lack the funding to get their projects off the ground. Through Earth Ways' Crowdfunding Platform, lots of people – each giving a small amount – can make these wonderful things happen.


What makes us different?

Earth Ways' Crowdfunding Platform only host projects which have their roots in the ethical principles of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. These may include: permaculture design courses, environmental education, native tree planting, community building, local food and artistic projects, help for refugees, ...


Earth Ways welcomes any and all initiatives whose ultimate aim is to make the Earth and our society a better place. If you want to learn more about these criteria, have a look here:


All transfers of money go directly to the projects. It does not pass through our hands or accounts.


Most crowdfunding sites charge substantial fees, with as much as 5-10% of funds raised, taken by the site. At Earth Ways we want as much money as possible to go towards the projects themselves and that’s why we will keep costs to an absolute minimum and will not take any profit. No % !!! All users have to pay for is paypal transfer costs. We want to try to get the other costs like hosting, software, registration, business costs, software subscriptions and wages all paid for by donations. So that you will get to keep more of the funds you raise. To make sure it works like as good as any other professional site, we have purchased software, with a team of professionals ready to manage problems.


Project goal

Our fundraising goal is £1000 ($1650). £600 will pay for all the software costs for the first year. If we have more, we will pay our staff a little for their time. Any potential left overs will be invested to improve the site and support your projects on our site.


Who are we?

Earth Ways' Crowdfunding Platform is created by a team led by Permaculture Teacher Ludwig Appeltans and Danielle Quist who are based in Forres in Scotland. We are incredibly lucky to have found a team willing to provide us services with the risk that if we don't make it noone will be paid.


Please support this goal.


If you prefer to avoid the paypal fees when making a larger donation, a bank transfer or cheque is possible too.

Please use the contact form on top if you want to do so.
