So our mission: To improve quality of life and opportunity through a customized curriculum that emphasizes community, sustainable agriculture and social justice
around the globe.


1) To write a curriculum for specific area that focuses on natural resources, community involvement and cultural understanding

2) To teach others how to implement, understand and teach the message of sustainable agriculture and its benefits within a community, guiding by
hands-on knowledge and methods.

(Edrian: You didn't mention the specific ways of proper implementation of ?the message of sustainable agriculture?

Where are the hands-on knowledge and methods? They were never mentioned!)

3) To send a team of trained individuals to go out to specified locations and to provide knowledge for communities to change their quality of

(TRained Individuals? Where are you suppose to get those individuals? Is $1000 enough to finance the transpo allowance of those individuals? Their accommodations? Their Talent Fees? Do you have enough materials to impart the knowledge? What if the beneficiaries are indigenous people who were not able to go after the modern civilizations? How are you going to approach them about the recent adverisities?)

4)To be able to teach in such a way that change is sustainable by the community without outside involvement after a period of 1 to 2 years.

(What is that way?)

5) To provide the ability for communities to teach their next generation, to continue patterns of sustainability.

6)To provide the ability to share and help implement solutions to social problems and strategies for further improvement after the field team
has left.

After some discussion and research, Sierra Leone has been chosen for the first project. The reason this is, is about 10 years after the Civil War has ended, Sierra Leone has tons of
possibilities for growth and positive change. Their government is
interested in funding agricultural initiatives, and it is relatively
progressive. There are developed cities but also extreme poverty, and
it is extremely rich in natural resources that can be utilized. Because
of the Civil War there is not a lot of long standing agricultural
efforts in the country, but more are forming. The government also has
been pushing the issue sense 2007 to increase food security.
We believe
that going here can make a very positive difference for individuals,
while having some governmental backing, and there are a lot of
possibilities considering the land
, climate and natural resources
present in the country. As the first curriculum, it provides a higher
chance for success while teaching us the ways into which to improve the
program to bring it to more difficult political climates and
land-resource-poor countries.

(Read the Underlined sentences:)

(Question1: if the government is interested in funding agricultural initiatives and it is relatively progressive, why do you need to interfere to the project of the local government? Was it like saying that "hey, your project is ineffective and useless, try to use ours."

(Question2: if the government has been pushing the issue, why do you need to interfere if everything is working our properly from the local government?

This operation is called: Operation gbamgbaode (subject to change- looking for the krio word for plant/seed. gbamgbaode means in the open)

Area of Focus: This needs to be a 1-3 page description of Sierra Leone and what is there and what we think we can do there. Like, an condensed overview of the
initiative. (I guess there's nothing you can do if the government is already taking an initiatives:

Let me ask you, if you think you're doing great, are you going to let other people interrupt you?)

Then The PLAN

The plan puts the information together in a way the meets our goals. It also puts some of the logistical information together, resources to
contact, and makes the mission possible. It gives us the direction to
teach others HOW and guidelines for implementing the work we want to
do. We want to be able to help a community grow: socially,
agriculturally, economically.

(You should have mention that the plans must be SPECIFIC addressing SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS! Again , SPECIFIC! Don't be too general!)

Well, i hope i made a contriburion Agent Crystall Bellar. I've been implementing projects before. And my mentor told me once that Never ever forget to be specific always to your solutions; and never interfere if everything is working our properly because you might destroy the good flow of the project)

THanks teamSEED! for this....

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
