This video is more of a business plan / business model for using permaculture land development to create a healing center. He describes an interesting business model for having employees live on site, but not much at all about "community".

It amazes me how much potential there is for an agriculture-based business to wipe out expenses to create an awesome net income. The land should be able to support what you are doing, and not need vast amounts of imported Stuff to make it work. You just need Good Design. He makes it look so simple.
