Mission Statement:

Self-sovereign permaculture

Community Description:

Liberty, Love and Honour eternal.

We are natural lifestyle Pagan spirits with strong sustainable permaculture ethics.

We are nature loving progressive naturalists/nudists in tune with Gaia and cosmic consciousness. We consider ourselves “space-tribe” – of the greater family of souls throughout the cosmos. As important as our physical “3D” reality is, for us, spirit comes first – lifestyle second.

Akakor is our home as much as it is our business, and our plans are as realistic today as they are forward-thinking towards the future.

Ethanol fuel production from Hemp greens and cleans the planet instantly, both locally and globally. We have spent years planning this business and community and have all the facts available regarding zero carbon emissions and transition fuels for the population during this age as we travel through 2012 and beyond into smaller sustainable self-reliant communities of the future (rather than large over-consuming cities choking on industrial pollution).

We can produce our own power from our own green fuel as well! This is a huge bonus for us as a sustainable independent permaculture community.

Organic farming is viable for both local food production and self-sustainability and is equally important for our community farm although not the focus of our initial business plans. We wish to help the world heal around us as much as gain land for our future survival together in peace while utilizing a realistic common-sense business model to build from.

The founder of this community started many years ago as a freelance investigative journalist which partly led to some of the knowledge added to this project.

Our primary household is Pagan, vegetarian, polyamorous, omnisexual, progressive nudist, exopolitically involved, etc… an independent, self-sovereign “nation” of growing people… a home where animals “are people too” who deserve as much love as we share amongst ourselves.

We are open to applications from new members at this time. Screening will be thorough, and security and future-minded. This is a massively important vision which will not stray from its course.

The future farm is located in the British Columbia interior.

Gathering like minds while testing honour and strength of vision while assuring security of all members requires eternal vigilance.

Reformed to screen out less serious, less active members.

We happily link to the following organizations, all of whom share our strong commitment to promoting community and a more cooperative world:
