Over 10 years, we made an abandoned village into an attractive residence for those who want to create their Family Homesteads. We organized interaction between people in our collective, and the entrepreneurs who are creating their Family Homesteads in the settlement organized means of financing the projects.
Family Homestead and “eco-settlement” are two totally different images which are not comparable with one another. Maybe we should treat more carefully this energy which has raised us to such a height and continues to raise us?
This report introduces the concept of the family homestead, a one hectare allotment consisting of a dwelling, water source, mixed garden and forested area. Homesteads are small enough to tend by hand, large enough to feed a family, and are arranged together in settlements of 200 or more. The possibilities and limitations of family homesteads are discussed within the Australian context.
“Such a powerful unity was demonstrated by the Family Party!” Kopenkina wrote in a post after the results were published. “For each who embodied these elections together with me – a deep bow and a kiss for everyone, I felt such powerful support and only that inspired me. The Family Party has loudly announced itself! We are strength! We will only move forward! We will bring your projects to life! We will be listened to!”
The main thing is that the alternative social environment created within family homesteads and their settlements can be built into the structure of modern society, interact with it, and enrich it with its practice. Family homesteads are one of the possible channels for the gradual, voluntary, non-violent transformation of existing social relations and the existing mode of production, opening up the prospect of a more attractive life for many members of society. And this is achieved not at the expense of renouncing the achievements of civilization, but, on the contrary, by using them to effectively address our pressing problems.
Amendments to the law on the “Far Eastern hectare” opened new territories for citizens and practically excluded the possibility of refusal of authorized bodies to provide land. 185 million hectares are now available for citizens to choose from, and the number of refusals in granting land does not exceed 3 percent.
The “family homestead” idea aims to significantly improve the way of life of individual families and create favorable conditions for the existence of their future generations.
At the same time, it creates a beautiful image of the future of Russia, intensive development in all directions, and stimulates the population to a higher level of morality.
Why make so much hot air discussing the theoretical solutions to underemployment, climate change and the housing crisis when a possible solution is right here in front of us?
Let the land employ our people! Put carbon back into the soil! Grow plants to support ourselves, and sell their fruits to fund future development.
