Families will be encouraged to grow their own fruit trees, vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs. All seeds will be organic and from non-GMO plants and seeds from each harvest will be used subsequently for growing. We will create community gardens around the edges of the community to purify the air within the community and maximize oxygen.
We will recommend having bee hives on the properties to maximize pollenization of fruit trees, vegetables and flowers, for gathering and selling of super food bee products – another great idea for entrepreneurs. There will also be an organic vineyard, as the region is famous for wine production.
Renowned experts will conduct research in biodynamic farming, permaculture and organic agriculture. International colleges and universities will be invited to send students, interns and professors to study and participate in the community. We believe in hands-on education for individuals, families and groups.
Each resident and guest will be given an ECO EDEN Garden Kit to encourage organic farming in their own home environment. All landscaping will be done with plants native to the land and conducive to the preservation of water resources. ECO EDEN will be WWOOF certified for travelers and students wanting to study agriculture, permaculture and bio-dynamic farming.
Residents may raise animals organically according to strict standards of humane handling and housing, emphasizing free range with minimal confinement. Only products that may be obtained from living animals, such as raw milk and cheese, eggs and wool, may be produced on site.
” Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bands.” – Thomas Jefferson
