BUILDING THE FUTURE: LORD NEIL BENJAMIN GIBSON’S ECOVILLAGE DREAM
Here’s the beauty of the modern eco village: it helps us reconnect with nature, a rhythm we lose as we go about living our lives in industrial society.
In a world of dwindling natural resources and mounting environmental concerns, who is thinking of ways of living that will be sustainable for future generations to live on our planet?
To answer these fundamental questions, Lord Neil Gibson embarked upon a journey to many of the world’s ecovillages – communities at the cutting-edge of sustainable living. Here, he discovered a global movement that could be the answer to sustainable ways of living for generations to come. Envisioning a world of empowered citizens and communities for a sustainable future, and building bridges of hope and international solidarity is Lord Neil B. Gibson’s Seed Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation.
Working across countries and continents, Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson’s foundation utilises green energy technology, ecological building techniques and human-scale design to reduce dependency on natural resources, facilitate self-reliance and improve the quality of life. In Lord Neil Gibson’s words, “Eco villages do not simply address the build-up of carbon and dwindling of resources, but also how we can live together joyously on this planet called earth.”
The concept of an eco-village is becoming increasingly popular, and the villages themselves are quite diverse, varied and span the globe. From yoga exercises overlooking the mountains to waking up in a Tree House in the jungle, each eco village has created something beautiful that we can learn from.
Ecovillages are almost like micro-laboratories for building a low carbon, post-growth society. But how much of ecovillage life is scalable and replicable? Embarking on the mission of making ecovillage life sustainable, Lord Neil Gibson’s Seed Foundation is in the process of developing Inter-model Steel Building Units (ISBUs) for residential projects. Shipping containers are made from special steel in order to withstand rough conditions at seas and exposure to external elements while being able to protect the goods stored inside. They are made to a standard set of measurements in order to be stackable the world over. The availability of these containers globally reduces our need to manufacture from virgin materials.
The Seed Foundation’s pilot eco housing project will be located on a 40-acre piece of prime real estate donated by First Interstate Group Ltd. Director, Ralph Huang, and located very close to the capital city of Belmopan. The eco facility will be cleared for staging of materials and the setting of foundations for the first houses to be placed. The first phase of the project will encompass a Medical Clinic Community, Methane Digester, Geo Thermal heating/cooling, a power generation Centre and fresh and waste water processing. Currently, soil samples are being collected as are eco samples to ensure that the base ecosystem is viable for the site’s needs.
Have you ever dreamed of living in an eco-village or creating the ideal village that fits in with what you believe is the right living environment for you? Lord Neil Gibson’s SFBBL and Seed Foundation will provide a complete package of all that is needed to build your model village, including a list of donors and special tax forms for US and EU donors. SFBBL and Seed Foundation are currently seeking mature, cooperative people and investors to join them in making their ecovillage dream come true.
