Hello Everyone,
Over the last few years I've been developing a beyond sustainable project on a large residential property in Riverside, which I'm now getting ready to move forward with expanding into the Temecula/Hemet area. Looking at a minimum of 20 acres and hopefully much larger.

Along with this, I've access to 25 acres in South Carolina as part of the project. Beautiful property with a stream, well and cooperation of some of the local government.

My goal is a long-term, beyond sustainable ecovillages with a focus on helping the homeless get back on their feet.

I'm currently looking for others that are interested in moving onto the current property and the property I'll be acquiring.

In exchange for helping with the project and greatly reducer cost of living you'd receive access to both properties and all the resources and knowledge that will be made available. This ranges from an ever expanding food forest, private gardening spaces, sustainable living space and much more!

Over the last 3 years of this 5 year install, I've planted over 1K edible & medicinal plants and trees to create a food forest in what was 99.5% sand and aggregate. With a water bill for the entire property of only $40 per month, but produces thousands of pounds of food a year.

Biogas, Earth Bag, alternative energy, Permaculture design and much more is already happening here.

Tours are currently available for the Beta Test property in Riverside, California to start seeing what can be done in a short period of time by myself and the occasional volunteer.

This is not just someone's dream. This is a Ecovillage already in the works and it is getting ready to take the next step.

If you're interested in living and working on changing the future for yourself and those in need, feel free to drop me a message with your contact information to discuss how you're like to be involved.

Attached is a photo of what the current property looked like and 2 years later. Now working towards the 4th year, so it's grown A LOT since those photos were taken.

Carpe Diem,
2 Years Into The Project
