WHAT IS The problem?

Each time farmers chop trees, burn or poison the weeds and plow the earth, it reduces the soil’s microbes and therefore its capacity to absorb carbon and water.
From then on, instead of a cooling moist breeze, a wall of heat will bounce off the ground. The rain pounds and compacts the soil further. Consequence is erosion of fertile top soil and water run off.

The normal water cycle has become disturbed.

Humans are causing bare and potentially arid surfaces on an enormous scale

This pushes the weather to extremes, as we all are experiencing on the globe right now. . 

Using less fossil fuel is just part of the solution and is taking too long to implement and take effect.

Especially since the oceans have absorbed – and will release – a CO2 reserve for the coming 4 centuries!
(Walter Jehne 2015)

Faster remedy: grow a green skin on the Earth

To obtain a buffer against extreme weather we should cover our habitable land mass permanently in dynamically growing green again.

If we plant a great variety of food trees and crops, it will increase fauna biodiversity and create abundance for every human being and for wildlife (see Ernst Götsch, 2016).

who will fund this re-greening?

Many people are tired of waiting for politicians to sort things out. Governments have had their chance. Big companies mostly only put on a green mask…

The time is ripe for a new way to team up.

To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete”

Our new model:

Combine ecological farming with private ownership on a mega scale

how? buy farmland publicly through the issuance of small affordable shares

If someone just wants to buy LOT to make money, that’s ok with us. We’ll put his money to work just for the good cause:

For the thriving of life on this planet!

KORPOS is a private grassroots project. It regenerates formerly degraded land by ecological methods of agriculture, like Food Forests. 

It aims to produce top-quality food for humans AND wildlife. With the eventual net profits of the harvests more degraded land will be purchased.

Individuals can become shareholders of this company, thus of the land KORPOS holds in possession. The share-value rise:

A. with the re-fertilization of the land.
B. When more land is acquired.

The growing value forms an extra incentive for consumers to join and farmers to make the transition.

The shares are called:

Land Ownership Tokens – LOT

 You will be able to buy and sell LOT
on crypto-currency exchanges

In this way the project can gain global momentum, powered by the blockchain 

the world of Bitcoin …

On a public ledger that hardly consumes energy

Now backed by land and her produce

We are using a specific agro-forestry method that went viral in Brazil:

Many ways to join and enjoy

Become a Food Forest Farmer

No land of your own? Trained in permaculture? Want to commit to excellence? Exploding with energy? Let’s talk!

 

Entrust your unused land

Do you own degraded land but have no use for it? We’d love to re-fertilize it into a productive food forest. Let’s devise a win-win-win plan.

 

Participation is possible in any climate

Invest with your thoughts

Comment on this project, be our think-tank, get in touch and keep in touch. Developers are very welcome to put LOT hack-proof on a blockchain.

Invest a dollar or two

At the end of next year the Land Ownership Token sale launches. Subscribe for updates about when + how you can buy/sell LOT.

 

Spend some time with us, plant a tree

Enlist as an active holiday-volunteer, back to basics, immerse in the lifestyle.

 

Plant more trees in your neighborhood

They are our lungs, they clean the air, bring joy, calmness, more birds and even fruits and nuts. Learn how to plant trees in our future workshops.

Did we mention it? Plant Trees!
