The Model

The first step towards personal empowerment is to free us from overwhelming debt and bondage. The terraculture built agri-city offers an attractive lifestyle alternative built with low-cost, abundant Earth’s resources.

Community members will implement terraculture building solutions creating homes and agriculture production structures to support 250 sustainable households using  A household consists of a terraculture home and greenhouse situated on a two-acre parcel in the agri-city model. The homestead is situated within a multilayered community complete with business, social gathering places, art and education centers, healthcare and wellness centers, animal care, and much more.  Web connectivity and business development portals allow connectivity to family and friends globally.  Individual sovereignty will be respected and taught, while collaboration and good governance are practiced. We continually refine our models to be as easy to replicate as possible. Economic outcomes include commercial sale of agriculture products, ecotourism and internet based cottage industries.

The growing model as the primary economic engine will feature crops creating the most edible biomass per unit of growing space in our year-round terraculture greenhouses. Leafy vegetables such as lettuce, chard and spinach, which are a mainstay for a healthy diet, are some examples of the primary cash crops in terraculture model growing model.

Plants requiring large open acreages, such as grains and cover crops are grown outside the terraculture units to support bee habitat and the production of honey, another primary economic mainstay for the community. 


Each Terraculture Project Develops In Four Stages

Building practices training and brick clay production

Campfire socials and membership building

Site location assessment and negotiations with local government and community

Water acquisition as needed

Stage 2 – Property Acquisition and Launch

Build first temporary housing unit supporting up to forty people for a work weekend retreats

Personal two-acre member homesteads underway

Temporary housing units become eco-tourism housing, visitor centers and wellness centers with addition of permanent homes

First commercial growing structures built

Sustainable power and water delivery developed


Stage 3 – Agri-city Infrastructure Development

Additional terraculture growing structures

Host festivals and other fund-raising activities

Broaden economic cottage industries

Broaden public outreach


Stage 4 – Full Economic Production and Sustainable Housing

Commercial food and distribution model in place

Community member homesteads are fully producing

Two-acre yield at 300,000 lbs/year @ avg. $1/lb = sustainable economic community and personal revenue
