Help Ransom Ranch Go Solar!

Welcome to Ransom Ranch
In the video and the photos below you will see how my life long dream has manifested thus far. It has been a fun and wild ride and now, here I am asking for your support to share that dream. -Marcia Gibbons

After 8 years of powering Ransom Ranch with a hardy (but loud) generator and subsequent gasoline bondage, we are going solar in 2016 with your help! Ransom Ranch has seen an outpouring of love and interest from local to international supporters.

Thus far, I have been able to grow a considerable amount of food - drought tolerant, open pollinated crops - just using the generator to pump water. In order to expand to the newly-cleared and terraced land, actual running water is necessary.

Any additional funds raised would be committed to rainwater collection systems on the ranch.

Everybody has something they can contribute to the greater good; this is something that I can do.
Visitors to RR are often surprised at how productive this land can be. I believe that food security in our future depends on people once again knowing how food is grown.

Visitors are often also surprised at how comfortable one can live in very small spaces that they can build themselves.

A sustainable future must include regenerative agriculture and rational building concepts.
