Having land, soil, restored by individuals, without having to pay for it or to exploit the free labour of 'volunteers',+ more effectively.
Does anyone have land that they wish restored (ecosystem, soils, food sources for humans...) without having to pay for it? (no institution or government wants to pay for that).
My Experimental Foraging Station is a way of doing that. If you are interested, read my profile and the file describing the project:
This project is primarily about reducing the drift in human health, which medicine cannot stop. It is also about this planet and societal exclusion. Sharing land with those who cannot 'keep up' (e.g. women with syndromes who need a gentle but constant physical activity, or older men who wish to be in nature), to give them an opportunity to be "useful" to both planet and humanity, with dignity, in peace and health, even if they cannot 'make money', instead of being made dependent or pushed to the bottom of society's ladder, and into their grave.
Why propose this here? Because 'science' only wants what is 'advancing', 'complexifying', and will not give access to grants for such a project.
Closing Statement from marika bouchon
Kickstarter... no, I haven't tried. Just looked at the site.
I did work for a while with a well-known site (can't remember name just now) for crowd funding and science outreach, and even read their course. The result was:
making a video felt like an insurmountable obstacle
the whole process of making and marketing the appeal was far too complicated for my poor old brain,, plus I do not have 'a social network' or a professional network, so what I put on internet remains invisible.
Kickstarter is organised along the new trend, 'functional' rather than structural (menus etc.) - I cannot handle this, don't understand these sites, can't find anything, feel that it's a mess, like on facebook. I'm not of the young generation for whom it appears to be 'intuitive'. It's extreme complication to me, and anti-intuitive. I have very real limitations when it comes to functioning in the 'normal' ways, although I can do things others cannot, doing the 'natural' things in society are extreme effort to me, and often fail.
So may be Keith's offer can offset that for me, with a video.
