:: Only ONE Week to close ~  Spring is HERE let's do this! ::

YOU are cordially invited to INVENT the FUTURE! Your contribution will assure you are part of making this the best year yet in this exciting cultural experiment. For the first time ever, WE THE PEOPLE can collectively steward and borrow this land from future generations. We now have until next Wednesday, March 21 to close on the property and complete the primary purchase.

We believe that :: permanent magical culture :: is the antidote to a society sick with hate, fear, greed and other impulsive behavior, lacking mindfulness, committing geocide in the form of runaway climate change. Meanwhile, we can learn again to be good to one another, and to our planet, as an Autonomous Resilient Community. WE ARE MOTHER EARTH!

Contributions made in this next week are recognized  toward our events, meals, products and services of our commonwealth, sharing our resources as a community. Guarantees are available on any loans, as the time draws near, please reach out to us!

We now stand to finally be caretakers together of 188 acres of beautiful natural land just two hours from Manhattan, habitat to many species and a research collective with a wide range of skills and interests.

Our site is now poised to work with cutting edge technology and methods which have only been applied in Norway or Costa Rica but which now seek to take root in North America, with our exquisite site and the extended community of changemakers and free thinkers committed already to working this year to cocreate the workzones, forestry, farming, bicycling and building.

Once upon a time (about a decade ago) a fiercely gentle old man named Bill Henry (you may know him as the Whale Rider; he stood up on nuclear submarines in 1960 saying "don't shoot!”) later found a parcel of peaceful paradise, directly off the train from New York City. With a turtle sanctuary wetland, lush fields for farming, a vast mountain forest, a bunch of barns and an 8 bedroom farmhouse... He thought: What a perfect place for folks to come spend time in nature!

He bought the land - and secured it as best he could - “For The Movement.” With his charge, he set forth a legacy for future generations to fulfill.

In the wake of Occupy Wall Street, Mr. Henry entrusted a young ancient mystic, Eco Lake, with a mission: bring together excellent people to create an off-grid wonder-world that reinvents the script, improves our imprint on the planet, and brings joy to everyone involved. And so, ARC 38 was born, and has served as a base for hundreds of activists and artists ever since, making ripples within the fabric of the Possible.

Since 2012 we declared the Paradigm to’ve already shifted, implicating all of us as parts of Creation to do our best to upgrade the Systems we use while we still can: pioneering a demonstration site of best practices for community— repurposing and fulfilling the prophecy of an awakened culture reclaiming our planet for future generations.

A little earlier in time on the seemingly "distant" land of Prince Edward Island, gathered two budding pioneers and inventors dedicated to ecological design and engineering. John Todd and Richard Nelson were committed to the notion of planetary healing and eco-tech innovation and converged to form a group of “New Alchemists" and to test and reveal the "Eco-Machine" at a site called the ARC.

Now, this New Paradigm operates strictly on synchronicity, so it’s no surprise that — fast forward to 2017 — Arc 38 would become the choice incubator site for the latest version of said Eco-Machine, which in one of its modern forms is the AgriPOD, a hydroponic and aquaponic vertical growing + energy-creating system so robust that it allows communities to go completely off grid with the guidance of local teachers like Evan Pritchard & Andrew Faust .

Calling all New Alchemists! Calling all Green Energy Pioneers, Radical Peacemakers, Imagineers, Mystical Creatures, Ancestors of the Future. The allure of an off-grid, community-values lifestyle is potent…. But now more than ever, having a lifestyle alternative in your back pocket is almost necessary. We will continue to provide immersive educational opportunities for people to sample what it takes to live outside of the grind and addicted to the grid.

This is a manifestation of many collective dreams, soul-missions and utopian visions, and only right now in history are we - as a human family - charged up, connected enough, and evolved enough, to make this shift in real life.

This campaign is designed in such a way that, if successful, it will enact a self-fulfilling legacy in the spirit of nonviolent resistance to outdated thinking by demonstrating that we together can live in alignment with nature, with our own inner truth and with the global community— starting with everyone around us. This is the power that will spark a global network of ARCs!  Who wants to shepherd Arc 39!?  Arc 17?  Arc 4? — with Arc 38 as one key incubator and hub of operations up here in the New Fertile Crescent. Permanent :: magical :: culture in our laboratory.
