This site is about Family Homesteads – plots of land, at least 1ha in size, that families inhabit and takes care of, with love, for the generations. The family homestead idea is the foundation of the “Ringing Cedars” movement, a phenomenon launched by the publication of Vladimir Megre’s “Ringing Cedars of Russia” series of books.
The Family Homestead is the national idea of Earth, capable of bringing beauty and love to our human civilization. In the future, people will realize the futility of the technocratic path of development, and return towards the primary sources.
A Family Homestead is a fully self-sufficient plot, no less than one hectare in size. It is the family’s own dimension of love, surrounded by a living fence. It cannot be bought or sold, but can be passed on through inheritance. There is no taxation on the Family Homestead or its produce.
A Family Homestead is a self-supporting unit that provides the needs of its family. Water, food, medicine and essential materials are all available, right at your doorstep, without the need of costly infrastructure.
Let’s show our spiritual worth not by theories and dogma, but with practical, material actions. Each Family Homestead is a living testament to the quality of its creators’ thoughts and aspirations.
At the beginning of the new millennium, the first sign of the Earth’s beautiful, happy future was any living shoot in each homestead.
People who had laid the permanent foundations of the first homesteads still did not completely sense the significance of what they had done. They had simply started to look on the world around them more joyfully.Vladimir Megre (2000), Who Are We?, Chapter 7 “Anastasia’s Russia”
