How much do you need to raise? How much has been raised? How much does each investor need to bring to the table?

Hey Rick, We've got enough to pay cash for some of the three hundred acre pieces we've been looking at so far. Will always have lots of expenses to handle. Equipment and earthworks come first. Whats your background and area of Perm Passion? I'm an oil field drilling consultant, and I'm passionate about healthy Soil, Fruit and bees.

First we'd tour the land and you could see if there is a spot that you feel a connection with. You'd have to put together a proposal explaining your vision. We have no set Price in place. It's more about the people at this point.
