Our experimental community of South Florida will be a pioneer in establishing the foundation for a new economic model. According to the cost of living in the area, we will create jobs for a household income of at least $ 50,000 annually. The income will be maximized by controlling the entire process from farming to point of sale. The maximum income level for households with the highest income is estimated at $275,000, however, the final and exact amount will be determined by the net income of the community. The more efficient the production of the community, the higher the maximum individual revenue. Regardless of income level, all citizens have access to the same education, including extracurricular activities, and the same health resources, with exactly the same quality. This allows equal opportunities for all, and sets the differences in efficiency and/or effort.
The homes will have solar power, and are designed to achieve maximum efficiency in all aspects of daily life. Entertainment is a very important part of the project, as it is usually the main reason that prevents people from living in rural areas. The special design of the community has a focus on high-technology and organic and healthy food. It has no motor traffic, lush gardens and water channels fresh markets and restaurants with healthy food. This will awaken curiosity and open a tourist market which in turn will generate a hospitality business, targeted to an alternative public: concerts of "New age" music, organic food, tech gadgets, biofeedback technology sessions, metaphysical conferences and many other unique attractions.
Agriculture is based on crops that provide high nutritional value, causing low soil exhaustion and yield high production. There are a few crops we have already selected, that allow us to turn them into final product, pack them, distribute them and selling them at relatively low cost and high profits.
