WHAT IS The problem?

‘Modern’ farming disturbs micro-climates.
this has impact on our weather systems

Plowing the earth and leaving her bare, planting mono-cultures, using chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, burning weeds …
These outdated methods reduce the soil’s microbes and therefore its sponge capacity to absorb carbon and water.

The local water cycle gets disturbed. Rain will pound the soil and will run off, causing erosion of fertile top soil.  Instead of the normal cooling moist breeze from lush green, a wall of heat will bounce off the bare and barren ground.

Micro-climates changed in this way, do not offer a buffer against the effects of extreme weather anymore. Indeed, many such micro-climates combined can even cause violent weather, as it seems we are increasingly experiencing on the globe .

If you are concerned about the greenhouse-effect, then take into account that conventional agriculture is causing bare and hot surfaces on an enormous scale.

Using less fossil fuels is not the whole story. And it is taking too long to implement and take effect.

Of course, against pollution and oil-wars we all should still diminish the use of fossil fuels.

But the oceans have absorbed – and will release – a CO2 reserve for the coming 4 centuries.

We are fighting a running battle. (Walter Jehne, see a summary in a lecture of 2015)

Yet there is another way, by which we could improve climates in only a few years:

Fast remedy: permaculture!
grow a permanent productive varied ‘green skin’ on the Earth again

Scientists have calculated that with permaculture methods on just 1/5th of our arable land the balance will be back: the plants, especially trees, would absorb all CO2 we release! (Walter Jehne 2015)
At the same time it gives room for growing biodiversity.

Toxin-free bonus:

You can produce 6x as much food, of high quality, with half of the costs, compared to conventional agriculture. A variety of crops and food trees, combined with rotational grazing, grows much faster and richer. (Research: Marcela P. Costa, Jan Schoeneboom, ea, University of Sao Paulo 2018)

who will fund this re-greening?

Our idea: we all, together? Voting through our wallets? How else can we help farmers to make the transition?

Many people are tired of waiting for politicians to sort things out. Governments have had their chance.
We neither can expect a radical change from big companies. Most only put on a green mask…

We think the time is ripe for a new way to team up.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
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.

N

Strategy:

Make these stocks also lucrative, so that they have appeal to investors who do not share our ideal of saving the planet.

The shares are called:

Land Ownership Tokens – L.O.T.

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

Powered by the Blockchain, our project can gain global momentum

the world of Bitcoin …

backed by land and her produce

We are using a specific agro-forestry method that went viral in Brazil,
but can be applied everywhere:

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

Plant an ‘ARK’ in your neighborhood

Trees and wild green patches are our lungs, they clean the air, absorb CO2, bring joy, calmness, more wildlife and even fruits and nuts. Learn how to (organize to) plant every bare meter around you.

Spend some time with us, plant a tree

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