SOME ECOLOGICAL IDEAS
you imagine what our world would be like, if even 30% of the people on our
planet lived a Garden of Eden type of lifestyle? A life where all the food
that people ate was the most delicious, organic and healthy food that
Mother Earth can provide? All the food that you ate was growing all around
you in a landscaped forest of fruit and nut trees? Have you ever stopped to
think what the positive implications of that would be? Well I have, and so
have many others. You would be surprised at how many benefits there would
be to not only yourself, but to other people, animals and the rest of
Nature, as well. Checking out this website, you will find out some of the
ways that living a Garden of Eden lifestyle will greatly improve all life
When I envision a Garden of Eden lifestyle, I do not think think of humans living like monkeys! In my vision, we
would live in an environment of organic fruit and nut trees with our state
of the art soft technology domes or whatever (as you will see in the
drawings). We would have computers, Internet, televsion
and other media and we would not be isolated from the rest of the world.
This website was created to show you some mathematically, biologically, and
ecologically feasible samples of designs that could give you or your
community a starting plan to build realistic communities that honor the
most sacred laws of Nature, and to help you create a Garden of Eden
lifestyle, for yourself and a small community.
The Edenic way of living would allow people to
completely feed themselves from the land that they live on, while eating
the freshest organic food on Earth, all at a cost that would be far less
expensive than buying it in a store. This food would supply the human body
with biologically correct nutrition, thus helping to reduce or eliminate
many common illnesses present in today's world.
One of the main problems we have in the world today is topsoil loss. The
demise of all the great civilizations of the world has been due to topsoil
loss. This Garden of Eden Project suggests a plan to deal with our own
human excrement in a way that totally converts excrement back into
mineral-rich, organic topsoil to be put back into the LAND, not into the
sewer systems and not out into our waterways! While we may well be eating
healthy, mineral-rich foods, most of the mineral content from these good
foods that we eat ends up in our excrement. We need our human excrement to
be put back into the land in a healthy organic way where our plants can
eventually get all the nutrients back from the foods that we once ate. Of
course all this has to be done in a manner that allows plenty of time for
all the bacteria to do it's
job of breaking down our excrement back into organic soil. Click HERE to see a sample of the plan we have.
The Edenic way would also enable more people to
spend less time working at full-time jobs. More people would only need
part-time jobs. People would grow their own food here, but it would
require, on the average, less than 2 hours per day of labor, at the most, to produce these foods. (Click HERE for more info.) This would allow
more time for more personal human activities.
All in all, the Garden of Eden way of life would be: more ecological; more
economical; use less space but give more personal space and allow more
leisure time than the way the average human being on Earth today is
currently living. Read on!
These communities are designed for vegan vegetarians. There would be no
livestock raising-for-food here. Being a vegan vegetarian alone, honors and respects the animal kingdom.
If you are not a vegan vegetarian, but would like to become one, please

In doing the research to design these communities, I discovered that
currently one quarter of an acre of land is enough land to grow an average
of about 7 pounds of vegetarian food per day for one person. (Click HERE for more info.)
People living in these Garden of Eden communities, with ½ acre each, would
have more land than current city-dwellers have: more personal space as well
as more recreational space.
The mathematical & biological fact is that if every single man woman
and child on Earth was given 1/4 acre of land for food and 1/4 acre of land
for recreation and shelter (1/4 acre + 1/4 acre = ½ acre), we in fact would
only require about 10% of all the land on Earth! Even though this may SEEM
to be really "crowding us together", the truth is that we would
all have FAR MORE SPACE THAN WE CURRENTLY HAVE LIVING IN CITIES! However,
that is even LESS LAND than is currently being used by agriculture alone,
because the vast majority of agricultural land on Earth is being used for
livestock raising. That is the truth! Do the
You may have heard in the media that we humans are
"overpopulated". I think this is the wrong term to use to
describe the ecological problem on Earth. Perhaps the phrase
"overcrowded in cities" would be more accurate. I believe the
ecological problem on Earth is NOT too many people, but rather, too many
people NOT LIVING IN HARMONY WITH NATURE! If there is an overpopulation
problem on Earth, perhaps we should first look at reducing the number of
livestock animals raised for food in the world, and especially in the
United States. The fact is that cattle, all by themselves take up over 25%
of the landmass of the planet! (1) By simply
reducing or eliminating meat altogether from our diets we could
automatically reduce the OVERPOPULATION OF LIVESTOCK, thus reducing the
impact of these huge numbers of domesticated animals on the ecology. A
United Nations report shows that cattle raising
alone is the single greatest threat to global warming. (click

If you are
inspired by this website then I've done my job. I have no resources to
speak of to build this but you are welcome to use any of this info to start
your own community. I would like to create a version of this myself, but am
also realistic enough to know that it ain't gonna happen without someone with big bucks stepping
forward to get the ball rolling!

I get hundreds of "junk" e-mails daily, so if you do e-mail me,
PLEASE type "GOEP" (Garden Of Eden Project) somewhere in the
subject line, otherwise it will be mistaken for "junk" and I will
delete it. Thanks.
