THE PERMACULTURE FARM SCHOOL VILLAGE PROJECT
First of all, I pray for your wellbeing and our common future in this world!
I am writing here to share with you about a project I am launching that I believe will change the world for the better!
You are seeing this because I know you are interested in these kinds of things, and I invite you to see what is in it for you! This project is a reframing of my life’s work, happening already, and it springs from my strong commitment to contribute to the creation of a healthy, abundant, peaceful and thriving future for all to enjoy.
You will soon see all of my channels of communication filled with presentations and shares about this multifaceted project: The Permaculture Farm School Village Framework, Network and Academy. The basic invitations will be to learn about and join the possibilities of transforming the world via a network of permaculture farm school villages created everywhere around the world. (we have a few going already!!!)
I will invite as many people as I can reach to imagine and help make happen: a network of permaculture farm school villages that meet human material and non-material needs, while being in service to all life, sustainably, regeneratively and indefinitely, everywhere around the world - villages that will enhance the well being of their local communities while also regenerating the health of the local ecosystems and ecology in which they exist!
You will be able to see and participate in shaping The Permaculture Farm School Village Framework (see picture of the 1st iteration below), and learn how to apply it all, or parts of it, to your own projects, via The Permaculture Farm School Village Academy.
This is a hefty and ambitious project! My entire life and career has been a continuous preparation exactly for this work. I have been shaping this vision with everything I have been doing for the past 2 decades, and everything I have lived through for the past 4. Coming from an earth and people centered village culture has a lot to do with why I believe this project’s vision is possible. Experiencing the positive outcomes of my work in inspiring, empowering and transforming the lives of thousands of people through regenerative education, training and community building is what backs that strong belief. I know a better world can be made possible! Even more than anything, what inspires and empowers me the most to move forward, believe in and commit my life to this project, is experiencing the support of dedicated benefactors and mentors, the help of a growing community of partners and supporters, and of course the collaboration with my visionary partner Anna Maria. And yet, I need way more support to make this vision a reality!
At this point we are working to consolidate and demonstrate the framework at our 65 acres permaculture farm school educational facility in the Ozarks of Missouri (see the picture of our market garden and programs we offered this year as part of the framework below). We made lots of strides forward! In the same time, we are reaching out for support and partnerships to a group of insiders and change makers (that is you), and taking the idea public via presentations in different communities of people. We are also building our social, experiential, intellectual, cultural and financial capital via the Academy and an upcoming crowdfunding campaign. We need a lot of help with that and you are invited to join us in all of it!
IF ANY OF THIS EXCITES YOU AT ALL, I AM INVITING YOU TO JOIN THIS JOURNEY WITH US!
1. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT:
If you’d like to learn more about The Permaculture Farm School Village Framework, Network and Academy, join me in a free LIVE Presentation of the project THURSDAY, September 29th at 7 pm CST / 5 PM PST, for one hour and a half on Zoom. You will be able to learn what we got accomplished so far and how you can join our mastermind team or support teams for this project. This would be a great time to provide feedback if you’d like to also! Register for the link to the Zoom meeting below - the link will be provided in the page after you click Submit, so make sure you copy and paste it in your browser and bookmark it!
2. JOIN THE ACADEMY
If you already want to actively participate in making this vision happen, take one of the courses in our Academy (see infographic below). Every single course reveals an important part of The Permaculture Farm School Village Network vision and gets it closer to being a reality. The Academy is a training platform for the designers, developers, leaders and all people that are co-creating the framework, network and the academy.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING the “Sustainability Literacy for a Regenerative World”! This is a powerful 12 modules course that starts October 3rd 2022 and it is valued at $7,200! We are now offering it for a sliding scale donation starting at $20 with no limit on how much one wants to give. We want as many people as possible to have access to this course that offers a certification equivalent with credit at many colleges and universities that offer sustainability programs. I also have a great feeling that many of the people in this course will be big part of this wholistic project. Learn more about the course and register with the link below. You can also register for our upcoming in person permaculture design certification courses and get on the waiting lists for our other Academy courses.
3. SUPPORT US FINANCIALLY
If you already know that you’d love to support us financially in this project, so we can grow the project team, build the framework and network further, run the academy and build this project to change the world for the better, you can contribute directly with the button below. We are not yet a non-profit and we are working on it! Financial support is and will be crucial in the next few months before some of the grants we are working on will kick in. Any support will inspire, empower and support us infinitely. IN ADDITION, WE CAN MATCH YOUR GIVING WITH ONE OF THE GIFTS IN OUR UPCOMING FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN IF YOU'D LIKE THAT AT THAT POINT! Thank you for believing in us!
THANK YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE!
We inspire, empower and support sustainability together!
