This site is up to help get the word out. Perhaps you heard about us through a crowd-funding site. Maybe a tree has been planted in your name. While more funding would help it happen sooner, finding the right people with motivation and talent would ensure money is used most efficiently. Whatever we can do ourselvesusing materials at hand would be the priority. When professional expertise is required, we will work with them as much as possible to learn by doing and enhance our talent pool to better handle future projects.
We are temporary, land is eternal. With among the greatest biodiversity on the planet, imagine the palette of garden concept possibilities that would continue to flourish long past your mortal existence.Those yet unborn could find bliss and inspiration within the space you helped embellish years earlier. Countless happy thoughts would endure in your memory. Come and explore, find a spot that calls toyou, then outline your vision. Once approved, even when you are not there, others will tend the gardenfollowing your guidelines. Periodic images will be compiled for online viewing. It needn’t cost you a cent,just your time, toil and sweat. An expression of beauty in conjunction with nature, while earning credit.
We are told that “money makes the world go ‘round”, yet wouldn’t this be to the extent we allow ourselves to become enslaved by it? Aren’t we most productive when work is a labour of love? What you share with your hands, mind and heart is who you are. We need volunteers with construction, horticulture, translationand technical expertise. Aren’t most of the best things in life, by definition, priceless?
To enhance optimal access and diversity, credit will be given in exchange for translation of this siteplus a bonus commission for the first few share purchases from non English speaking countries.
Rather than spend even more time setting up a database now, it would be more practical to delegatethis and other tasks to specialists who can provide better results with less effort. With a membershipportal in place, additional beneficial talent could be discovered and utilized, compensated with credit.
The first offering will be limited to 100 Founder shares at $5,000 each, worth 50 days all inclusive accommodation. This should allow ample time to feel things out as we go, evolve the best design and method, not feel pressured,rushed or crowded. The next 200, Charter Member shares, will have a sliding scale value based on purchase order. Regular shares will be worth 32 days. All shares will have dividend days, one day credit added each year until all are used up. You pay once, no extra fees.Terms of future share sales might change depending on membership decision, yet whatever terms in effect when purchased will be honoured indefinitely. Although I will be investing thebulk of my savings to get this going, I seek no material gain. Even if no shares are ever sold, the plan is in place. Things will work out proportionate to how much help comes along. Regardless of how big this becomes or not,it should still retain the feel of a collaboration between friends. Money is a detail, people are fundamental.
This will be set up as a trust, so the dream can continue beyond our existence. My primary responsibility to you would beto set things up to minimise the impact in the event of my untimely demise by having the right people in place to keep it allgoing. In addition to crowd funding, any contribution would be truly appreciated. To make ends meet, I can work more hours.Perhaps this cooperative ideal won’t cooperate, fair enough, it will come together sooner or later even if I must go it alone.
For a limited time, a mini-share option of four nights for $500 will be available, extendable at $125 per night. Eventually, it will be three nights at the same price, $159 per extra night. Anything already spent would be credited towards a full share purchase. As more full shares are sold, mini-shares will be offered less.
