What does it mean to be successful?
With what means do you measure your wealth?
In today's modern world, your success, and even your identity are based on your individual wealth- measured by money, assets, popularity, etc. Society has programmed us from an early age to believe that bigger is better. This idea that having "more" means the same thing as security, leads people to pursue things in extreme excess. They are consumed with how much "wealth" they can procure in order to live a "comfortable" life. The people who don't have as much are envious and disheartened. Many disconnect from society feeling financially left behind and insecure.
Like that last swing that finally cracks open the pinata, flinging its prizes near and far, life elicits a scrambled race to take as much as one can with no regard for anyone else. This behavior is encouraged in the education systems, political messaging, social media, mainstream media, movies, books, and many more veins of content that bombard our daily lives.
Our intention, with this novel community, is to shift the focus from material security toward a “shared” wealth model within a Co-operative and Sustainable Community. We found a way to live free of monetary pressure, to practice individual responsibility, while participating in free creativity, and living an authentically sustainable life.
The Four Pillars - WATER, FOOD, ENERGY, and SHELTER (COMMUNITY) - are the four basic necessities of life that enable us to flourish. Our community is designed to produce and supply all of these basic needs to all of its members, hoping to instill a new, different sense of security. Having our pillar needs met, we can fully participate in learning and living the Essential Values and Vital Principals that GreenLand upholds:
Organized as a non-profit and a Co-operative, each member will have an important role to play in community operations. There will be no need for any member to have an outside source of income or employment but we do not discourage it either. The 4 Pillars which make this community 100% sustainable- food, water, energy, and shelter- will need the attention, maintenance, and care of all community members. The responsibilities will be divided up and designated to all GreenLand members by GreenLand members. There are numerous tasks to be considered, like the maintenance of vehicles, detailed cleaning, organization projects, gardening, cooking, planning events, etc. Each member will find their niche; maybe they are better suited for one task more than another. Training and education relating to each task will be available to each member as well.
The Co-Operative is set up with each and every member having equal stock or an equal investment. This investment is in the form of a stock certificate and gives each member a right to live in a private housing unit as well as to participate and benefit fully in the activities, production, and governing of the community. The right to a private living space for each member is one of the most important aspects of the community structure. Just like an HOA or Condo organization, all exterior property is maintained by the Co-Operative and the interior of each private residence is the occupant’s area to customize as they please. All living quarters will be built on solid foundations and will be permanent structures. Tiny Homes on trailers will be permitted to take temporary residency on the land on specific occasions.
We will offer rental vacation units that will be built within the community to allow non-members to stay for a specific duration of time and participate in the activities just as a member would. Depending on location, there will be an area for RV visitors and/or campers.
One of the most significant benefits of living in GreenLand is that there will be no utility costs. Water and energy will be 100% recycled and furnished through a community effort. Waste will also be recycled in one or more ways- through composting, energy production, and greywater irrigation. These innovative tools and ideas will also generate power for the private living quarters.
Members and residents will be encouraged to engage and socialize with each other and the surrounding communities through the individual development of creative pursuits which will include but are not limited to art, music, science, inventions, environmentally responsible agriculture practices, outdoor activities, etc.
Our Welcome Center will be the central community gathering place big enough for all members to assemble for shared meals and activities, including art displays, readings, lectures, concerts, and other forms of entertainment. The idea is to have a central "sharing and learning center" for our community and our surrounding neighbors.
GreenLand's intention is to maintain a 100% sustainable living community for its members and to be as inclusive and knowledgeable to those who live outside our community as well as those who live here.
