Evolvefest has become a Global Movement and it is time to use our numbers and collective power to do the unthinkable- Crowd-Source our own Eco-Village and live free from outside control as Free and Sovereign Beings on the Land~!

Take your money out of the banks and begin to save for the buy-in. We will not ask anyone for money until the land is ready for purchase or donation. Launch is projected by Spring 2015 with initial homes built and available by late Fall 2015. This is subject to change based on many variables as you might foresee.
We will be using the model of the Village at Bourtange, Netherlands (as seen in the picture above) as an inspiration to create Sacred Geometric Art from the Land and we will be using the Thailand Dream Dome Home as an inspiration for individual dwellings. See the Thai dream Dome here:(http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2582344/Home-sweet-dome-Man-quits-job-builds-dream-mini-home-just-six-weeks-9-000.html)
They buy-in will be equivalent to $10,000 per adult (not household) which will cover the price of your home and secure you a patch of Land to farm.
The purpose of a buy-in is that it is an investment for the total immersion and experience.
The 10k per person covers much more than the domicile, it will go towards the purchase of land, the creation of infrastructure, the maintenance and upkeep and all costs related to legal titleship/collective ownership.
It's designed not to keep people out but to keep them in. If a person does not work hard and make the sacrifice to be a part of this by bringing their unique contribution at the buy-in, it does not bode well for the community.
What people don't have to sacrifice for, they tend to either treat lightly or neglect, because they "are not personally invested".
Outside jobs will be welcomed but for the most part, we will be moving towards a Contributionism Model such as the one described in Michael Tellinger's Book, "UBUNTU", which we encourage all to read ASAP. Here's the link:
I imagine we will cap things at around 500 Households- depends on where we are and the size of the land - maybe a little more?
My immediate thoughts for locating the project are areas where there are huge tracts of farmable land and ample water supply like Sod Farms, such as those in Pine Island, NY and Great Meadows, NJ~ but were are open to the guidance of the Great Spirit.
This is a brand new initiative, so keep your eyes open for updates and modifications as new and better information becomes available. For now we just wish to get the word out, Call those who feel the Vision burning in their hearts and build up numbers.
If you do not intend to begin saving $10,000, please do not select "Going" but feel free to select "Maybe Going" on the Event Page.
Where The Venus Project and The New Earth Nation have failed, we will succeed because this movement will NEVER be co-opted by outside forces- all of our transactions and dealings will be open-book and transparent for all who choose to become invested in this magnificent co=creation.
As far as the spiritual basis of the Community Vision, it is primarily rooted in the teachings of Jesus from the New Testament and the wisdom of the Bhagavad-Gita. People who don't resonate with Jesus Christ or the Gita will probably not feel comfortable in this community.
We mention this only because the #1 cause of divorce and the breakdown of relationships is DIFFERING VALUES.
So to be specific, I would fairly describe the community as Neo-Christian, but having NOTHING to do with the corrupted form of Institutionalized religion whatsoever.
People of all faiths are welcomed in the spirit of Agape Love that Jesus taught: "In my Father's House there are many Mansions"
"After long study and experience, I have come to the conclusion that:
1] all religions are true;
2] all religions have some error in them;
3] all religions are almost as dear to me as my own Hinduism, in as much as all human beings should be as dear to one as one's own close relatives.
My own veneration for other faiths in the same as that for my own faith; therefore no thought of conversion is possible."- Mahatma Gandhi
"“We have inherited a big house, a great “world house” in which we have to live together – black and white, Easterners and Westerners, Gentiles and Jews, Catholics and Protestants, Moslem and Hindu, a family unduly separated in ideas, culture, and interests who, because we can never again live without each other, must learn, somehow, in this one big world, to live with each other.
This means that more and more our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. We must now give an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole in order to preserve the best in our individual societies.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
More to Come~ Namaste _/I\_
Addendum: As far as the buy-in, where there is will, intention, visioning and prayer~ there is ALWAYS a way, and people who don't feel that is absolutely true would probably not be happy in an environment of those who do.
All I can recommend is break out of mental habits, be enterprising and start saving.
From here on in, I will be deleted any posts that complain about the buy-in pricing. We are doing something real here- not imaginary, and if you don't think 10k is worth a home without mortgage payments and the absolute joy and freedom of living in conscious community with luminous other beings, than I don't think anything more I could say could convince you otherwise.
Please refrain from the temptation to bring anything less than helpful and uplifting energy to this page and project. Constructive Criticism is more than welcome IF it is communicated in a respectful and genuinely helpful manner.
Thank you _/I\_
Community Visioning From your Future Neighbor, Darryl Singleton:
"Personally, I am looking for a quality of energy that can ebb and flow, modulate effortlessly between the intensity of the radiant sun to whisper quiet subtlety, calm yet powerful.
Where the quality of the day is not measured in the money we generate. For done well, creating wealth will be incidental. The real commodity being the energy you create, share, contribute. Where knowledge will be the high. Epiphanies of space, time, the universe, down to cellular to the sub-atomic level and the space in between.
Where everyone is supported in their uniqueness and happiness can be a jubilant face or quiet demeanor.
Where people can slip in and out of each cycle without question or interference. So if one was to serendipitously happenstance into samadhi, the space is held.
And children, yes children, so sweet. We host. Cry, laugh, argue, question. By all means.
Animals, yes animals...
Verdant gardens and orchards to endless delight and the highest nutritional content.
And guests, wayfarers.
Okay, depression, anger, sadness. Symptoms of stuck energy, easily remedied, with the right intention or cycle to learn from some deep meaning.
Everything in this life informs who we are, yet distracts us from who we can be.
I think its fair to say, most have not yet even begun to live.
This can be the beginning of what life can be. Indescribable. Elegant. Memorable. Without regret.
This and so much more..."
