The project is being manifested by Sound of Light which is handling the land deal, infrastructure and organizing the communal structure and planning process. We are currently surveying the land and finding the right place for everything. A large portion of the land will be dedicated to reforestation and wildlife preservation. We will include 4-5 areas designated to building houses that will include green spaces along-side the building structures. All lots will have open area next to them and will be supplied with a road, water and electricity. The development will include a central area for the use of the residents with a communal kitchen, storage, meeting place and office as well as other necessary amenities. The communal areas in the ‘neighborhoods’ will be planted with gardens for the cultivation of food and could also host resident projects. In this way each of us will have a private space and a communal space to create in.
If you have any questions about how these projects will unfold or their limitations, or thoughts thoughts and suggestions about projects you might want to create, please feel free to ask or start a discussion!
Here are some of the ideas that we came up with :
Village center- a place for meetings, cooking together, offering services and goods (market place) and other functionality that will be needed and suitable.
In the beginning we will build the first structure to help the new comers to the land with a kitchen, storage space and a living space to support them while their homes are under construction. Later it will be developed as needed to be our fully featured village center.
SpiriTia- An area dedicated to spirituality, medicine plants and the experience of nature. Imagine mazes made of vine, humming birds around and huge crystals in galactic formations. Huge mandalas made of plants and dozens of temples will be built to honor our spirit helpers and recreate ancient knowledge.
Creative hub- We will make an area available for creation and presentation of all kinds of arts crafts and skills.
These new projects will join the Florestral hub and become an extension of the existing infrastructure such as the Hosting center, VISphere and the Studio project.
We hope and aspire to dream & create together and that as many of the community members will be involved . This is a good place to begin. What do you think is essential for our community ?
It sounds great ! Where do you plan / envision building the Village center, the Spiri Tia and the Creative hub?
How is the new food garden developing? I feel it is an essential positive aspect to have in a sustainable community, especially nowadays! I also know it is a huge amount of work. Gardeners often told me that a 20 minutes walk after gardening was very good to free them from any physical pains sometimes occuring after gardening.
