Support sustainability as I teach by my experience

In light of most recent events, as well of years of personal frustration. I have decided to make a drastic change in life.

The goal is to become as close to 100% sustainable as possible. Obviously it will take time and hard work to get there but it is an achievable goal. I plan to document my journey to show people what it takes for someone without experience growing food, to get to this goal. I plan to be as close to fully sustainable by 2025

With the pandemic, we have all been given time to think about what really matters. Some of us have learnt very hard lessons and continue to struggle for the most basic needs. 

Social unrest is everywhere and It very well should be. To name a FEW disgraceful  issues;

1.) Institutional Racism worldwide
2.)The destruction of our Environment (the home of your kids)
3.)The failed economy that serves the rich. 
4.)The privatized prison system and  in America that is slavery
5.) The lack of basic healthcare for all.
6.) The fact that millions in the world are hungry
7.) Our inability to put human lives before money.
8.) Smaller countries are systematically put in a position of weakness and and taken advantage of by the so called world powers

Many of us make our voice heard and work to affect change. We need this! stay strong I love you

It is important we also realize that those in power are funded by us.

What if they stopped hearing our voices.

What if we didn't spend on things we didn't need?
What if we all didn't keep our money in traditional banks?
What if we slowly moved towards cultivating land and growing and raising our food responsibly?
What if we looked to our neighbors and cared for our immediate communities more?
What do you think would happen to the corporations would do?
What do you think the effect on the Government as it is would be?

Those in power have proven time and time again that they don't care much about us. That we are merely tools for the money machine.

It wont be easy but my journey hopes to educate everyone on the ways to be sustainable, and help move us in the right direction.

Here is my plan;

I plan to buy a lot of land with my wife, near enough to the city where she can commute to her job at Barnard College as a 1st year Writing/Creative Writing Professor, to continue to be a powerful voice of change and to educate.
In the beginning I will have to interact with the economy to upkeep the property and make the steps to sustainable living.
(We lost our apartment which was a result of racism dating back to the 1960s, where my Wife's relatives were systematically denied the ability to purchase property. Cue gentrification and get your family our of OUR Neighborhood).

I plan to grow produce and raise chickens to feed my family and to give to those in my community.

I plan to grow Micro-greens (a super-food full of nutrient) to sell to markets and restaurants, to fund the upkeep of the property and to reinvest in the sustainability movement.

I plan to virtually interact with the world and lend resources, and help to those that I consider part of my personal community.

Once June 16th 2025 comes. I will exit the virtual world and stay still and work towards the enlightenment of my mind.

If you believe that this cause is important and we can reach the goal. I will continually update you on how the progress goes and share what I learn. As this will be a learning journey for me. I appreciate if you can share this, and if it is within your power to help out.  I know that these times are hard so again a share is more to me than a donation. All contributors will receive at the very least Micro greens, an invitation to find solace at the farm, and will be considered part of my immediate community, that I will be committed to helping however I can. Donations go towards materials to start the micro green farm and to setup my agricultural and livestock aspect of my future.

When we take control and become less dependent, the power will be transferred back to the people.

THIS REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED!
