An open source model for our future.
For a solution to be truly sustainable and good it must have a positive return to the environment and society. At the heart of any design problem is a question: Are we trying to make something less bad or are we really trying to make things better? It’s not about solving for the negative. It is about creating a positive.
Healthy food is the center of our community. Our food forest starts at the fresh water spring nearest the community center. The types of forest gardens change along the way from enchanted to functional for erosion conversion. There are terrace gardens and swales to catch water and send it into the ground. We believe the forest is the best garden. It is its own ecosystem; never needing outside fertilizer, watering, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc. We promote a healthy living soil. Our soil is an ecosystem in itself. We produce over 5,000 kilos of mangos each year and tons of holistically carried for beef. There are hundreds of mature fruit producing trees and over a hundred varieties.
