A new currency by the name of "Nordoffs" has been created in Ojai, California! The currency only works in the area, and therefore can only be used in the area, keeping the wealth in, and the corporations out! The reason for this is Ojai is too expensive for many of it's citizens. At the same time, though, it get's a lot of tourists. One Nordoff is the equivalent of $1.50 dollars. Therefore, when tourists trade in at the bank, it does not seem like much of a financial gain for Ojai, but all… Continue

Doing this keeps the "economy" (a.k.a. interaction) between us constant.…

I go to the Oak Grove School in Ojai, California. I stay at the one dormitory, or "house," that the school has. Before I got to Besant House, although Oak Grove is green, the students were pretty wasteful about their resources. I worked with the dormparents to create the following rules:

2.) Make sure all faucets are fully off.
3.) Do not take showers longer than… Continue

And I am almost 18!! Once one has a bank account, bank's should have employees called "Guides," people who will work with each individual to plan their spending and make sure they obide the future laws of,… Continue

Welcome to 2020, earthlings!! Due to the educational resources available in my community, including the required cla**** at school, I have learned how to grow my own garden, so abundant and varied in nutrients that I am able to live off of it!!! Of course this can be labor intensive, so my wh*** family is in on it, and my neighbor and I have an agreement to share foods if something fails, which is unlikely since the vegetables we have nowadays are specially formulated hybrids meant to stay… Continue

Although the United States is known for obesity and a relatively low amount of malnourished peoples, LOW still means a million people are malnourished. Ojai, the town in California where I live and go to school, is known for it's lack of chain resturaunts and it's abundance of organic food. Ojai helps to fight hunger by makig it easy for every citizen to have their own garden or participate in community gardens.
