Beautiful Minds Community Network - New Vision for 2035
The BMCN’s mission is to create 5,000 affordable, net zero, environmental-restoration communities (population 30-250) which will connect to the rural energy power grid network growing across the nation by 2035.
Focus: Adapt the growing Contingent Workforce to alternative lifestyles which create new small business enterprises, new jobs, and revitalize isolated rural communities:
- produce renewable energy surpluses [utility scale portable storage batteries (Megawatt Hour capacity)]
- create access to affordable, locally grown fresh foods, goods and services
- connect rural public to services using low carbon emission vanpools to transport people and goods to distant townships and metro areas
- reduce overcrowding in metro areas
- raise public awareness of the stewardship maintenance needs of our biosphere, and how all things support all life
Improve education quality and accessibility to usable skills and technologies to enable the growing population to meet the changing demands of world economy:
Programs which support all areas of:
- renewable energy system technology
- permaculture community development and farming techniques
- alternative greenhouse food production
- community governance and management
- web-based education program development
- eco/agro/geotourism and voluntourism management.
Environmental Restoration Focus:
Create community collaborative restoration projects to address natural disaster damage [erosion, pollution, desertification] to forests, farm/ranch lands, and waterways/groundwater resources.
- plant ground cover crops along rivers, reservoir tanks, ponds and creeks
- construct layered water collection troughs to slow flash flooding flow to rivers and streams, and create reserve tanks for access during prolonged drought periods
- revitalize water-resistant soils on farm and grasslands planting regenerative vegetation crops
- remove fire-torn forest debris, donate waste for biofuel production
- turn soils and replant area-specific saplings [old growth trees are in danger of extinction, as are the wildlife species they support]
- plant fruit and nut trees for public harvest (public land tourism attraction)
