Irresistible Community Builders, LLC presents: Why Not Put Yourself and Your Money Where Your Mission Is in the New Year?

By Tom Braford

How about making a New Year’s resolution to join and actively support the mission based Irresistible Ecovillage Solutions communities movement?

If not now, when? If not here, where? If not you, who? If not causing a socially, environmentally and economically just and sustainable culture and world, what is your compatible mission that you see would be furthered by your participation in a solid mission based, grounded community of proximity?

The time for comprehensive community of proximity has come at last and you have a role in causing and shaping it and will be able to reserve your home or co-op business space soon. You could even move in this year, if enough of us get our assets in gear.
Our starting point is that we are out to create a physical community model that is scalable, affordable initially and into the future, self-sufficient in healthy food production, renewably generated power and water, where it is possible to live a post-carbon lifestyle now.

We are also out to create a total motivation culture that is fun, purposeful and has the potential to transform St Louis, civilization and the planet once taken to the regional network scale.

We are starting by combining movements that have proven to work by building fully integrated, contiguous cohousing neighborhoods that include a variety of housing types and extensive common facilities with ecovillage features like integrated renewable energy micro systems, water capture use and reuse, on site recycling and waste treatment, resilient innovative permaculture environments, cooperative businesses, early and continuing on-site education, a shared fleet of renewably powered electric vehicles and a whole lot more.

Speaking of electric vehicles, we will be applying for a piece of the Missouri VW settlement for our community. So, you are invited to join in the envisioning process, research and application to assist with the purchase of our electric vehicle fleet. What would the optimum mix of vehicles for a community of 90 households, a dozen co-op businesses and 150 members be?
