Mission Statement:

Sustainable Ecovillage

Community Description:

Biospharms are best described as ARCs. Agricultural Retreat Communities or Ecovillages. For many reasons known to the awake Christians in the US we have chosen a tropical location in Central America. Belize, to be precise, due to it’s Christian constitution and basis in English law, not to mention English speaking. The area of Belize we were lead to is particularly Christian and has an established barter economy. This will be necessary to avoid the coming mark of the beast. Our community is off the grid and under the radar. We are all totally self sustaining as far as food staple items. We focus on permaculture and sustainable ag along with simple living homes and small scale animal husbandry to supply our needs. We are securely fenced and gated and strategically defendable in case the need arises. The community is simple and understated to avoid attention, however, designed to be fun, safe and carefree for the most part. If you are looking for a safe, secure, affordable, and sustainable retreat away from big government and secularism then we may have a place for you. Our Biospharm packages include your farm fenced off, the standard cabin, a composting outhouse, a water cistern, permiculture fruit and nut tree groves, edible landscaping, a raised kitchen garden, solar lights, LP cook top, and more for less that an average new truck. We are not just dreaming, we are already building and planting and ready for the global crisis to hit, come what may. Recent laws like HR2751 and S510 along with several new Executive Orders make us happier than ever to have a place away from the US in these coming troubling times. The time is soon approaching where no man will buy or sell without the mark. What have you done to prepare your family? Look to Biospharms for all the information you need to not just survive but to thrive. BIOSPHARMS
