Howdy fellow humans!
How are you doing?
Below are the MAIN BENEFITS
of the Garden of Eden Project:
It would only require 12% of the landmass of the Earth for EVERYONE on Earth to live this way!
Compare this to the 38% now used for agriculture alone, worldwide, not even counting all the other
space currently in use for housing, recreation, etcetera! And people would have more personal space than NOW!
(Click on the INTRODUCTION link to the left
of the picture above for more information on this!)
The pollution on Earth would be far less!
We would have a smaller carbon footprint!
WE would be better off ecologically!
We would have less greenhouse gases
We would have the biggest selection of fresh, organic plant foods anywhere!
All excrement would be buried, eliminating topsoil loss!
Food waste would all be composted!
There would be far less air pollution!
There would be more wildlife habitat available!
There would be far less Livestock animals suffering!
There would be less crowding in big cities!
There would be way less semi truck traffic hauling millions of tons of farm food to the cities!
There would be way less pollution from all those tractors and farm equipment plowing fields, harvesting etcetera!
And finally, people would be happier and healthier!
All of the facts above are explained in further detail throuout this website!
So how would you like to live in total harmony with Nature while eating the freshest,
organic healthy foods on Earth in full abundance growing all around you?
How would you actually like to be in a Garden of Eden where you lived in nice little dome houses surrounded
by concentric circles of different types of fruit and nut trees? Sounds cool doesn’t it? Sound impossible? Too difficult to build it?
Today we have better technology than ever before on Earth, in some cases. So why don’t we do it?
So what would a REAL Garden of Eden look like? Something like the picture above, right? There are 4 LINKS to the left
of the picture above named: 5 ACRE DESIGN, 10 ACRE DESIGN, 20 ACRE DESIGN and 40 ACRE DESIGN. If you click on each one of these it will
show a different PICTORIAL of what a Garden of Eden could look like. These 4 designs, unlike the picture above, are
actually precision designed. That is, the size of the houses are drawn proportionally to the size of the main building,
etc.. So that when you look at the many circles of dots (trees) in the PICTORIALs, you are actually lookiing at the
correct DISTANCE between each dot drawn to scale.
All the rest of the items in these PICTORIALs are also drawn in a proportional scale. So these Pictorials actually give
you a drawing which is useful in planning a real piece of land for your Garden of Eden. The only thing NOT to scale is
the SIZE of each dot representing a tree. My spreadsheet program couldn’t make the size of the dot to scale, but the
DISTANCE BETWEEN each dot IS to scale.
So you may want to create your own spreadsheet to customize your own Garden of Eden using your own trees. This will depend
on what your local climate is like and which trees your local nursery sells which would grow properly in the place where
you will grow your own Garden of Eden.
Each tree has a different planting distance. So, for example, if you want each circle of trees to be a different type
of tree (as I have done there) you may need to use some mathematics, geometry and spreadsheets to firgure it all out.

MORE ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFIT DETAILS
There is actually room enough for every single man, woman and child on Earth to do this, while
taking up only 12% of the land on Earth and everyone gets 1/2 acre per person to feed themselves
adequately and plenty of room for living and recreation. Sound impossible? Read on, it's all mathematically
Can 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 as I have shown here? 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 (NOT an orchard with straight
even rows) but trees arranged in concentric circles, with each type of tree spaced the
proper distance apart to allow for the maximum size of each tree? (Look at the Pictorials in the
links to the left of the picture above -- the 5 ACRE DESIGN, the 10 ACRE DESIGN, the 20 ACRE DESIGN,
the 40 ACRE DESIGN for more specifics). So you would have these trees along with every other type
of plant food that you can imagine. How cool is that?
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, television
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.
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
check out these links. If you would like to
read a very positive, inspiring vision for America click here.
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.)
Also 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! If you don't have good soil, you don't have healthy crops!
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, much 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 its job of breaking down our excrement back into organic
soil. Click HERE to see a sample of the plan we have.
People living in these Garden of Eden communities, with ˝ 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 = ˝ acre), we in fact would
only require about 12% 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 math!!!
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
to see the article. Also for more information on this topic click here.)
Another wonderful thing about this Garden of Eden Project is that because it would
only require about 12% of the land area of the Earth for EVERYONE on the planet
to live like this (and I get that of course everyone is not going to want to live like this)
But if say 80% of everyone did live like this, that would leave about 88% of the land left over.
So what do we do with this 88%? How about maybe 15% for cities and high tech centers
and the other 73% to be restored back to natural habitat and original eological habitats for wild
animals and Native lifestyle people who want to return to a Native lifestyle as
their ancestors lived hundreds of years ago? If we all could live in peace like this
Everybody wins, right?

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!
