"Where Common Sense Comes Alive"

 

Coming from cities with no experience in construction or agriculture, we designed and built Ionia. This income-sharing sustainable village (population 40-60) has successfully supported a family-oriented way of life for the last 32 years. By exploring basic income, shared resources, plant-based diet and sustainable governing, we thrived. Navigating the world of non-profit grant writing, we successfully partnered with private foundations, USDA and the State of Alaska on countless projects. On 200 acres of wild spruce forest in Alaska we built, by hand, 10 log homes, a bustling 12,000 sq. ft. log community center, extensive organic gardens and our barn/activities center - the largest natural building (clay/straw, post and beam) structure in North America. Depending on the hurdle, we gather to bring an extensive variety of resources and find solutions. We are well-versed in taking on projects outside of what is safe or familiar and go wherever practical passion leads.

Equilibria is a for-profit/non-profit hybrid website that focuses in on media and cuisine. In an ad-free, visually intuitive and inviting layout, the site merges, refines and personalizes our relationships to existing social networks, resource providers and content providers like Wikipedia, Facebook, ITunes, Netflix, NPR, etc. By encompassing a food side (restaurants, "cooking circles", menus, pantries, and recipes) and a media side (news, books, film, games and music), the site gains potential for wide appeal and meaningful impact.

(The "news" category on the "media side" has special importance given the current relevance/need for improvements in how current events are consumed.)

 

On the web, you can search and find anything, but there is no reliable way to know if it is something you can trust or believe. Knowing what everyone thinks is not actually that useful. The Internet has become too big and lacks context. People now often feel manipulated and distrustful of algorithms, commercially driven search results and “all people who liked this, also liked” methods of leading us to the next thing. It makes us feel like lonely, manipulated consumers. In contrast, this site introduces a human element ... sorting out things that matter to you in relation to the people that matter to you in a clean, ad-free format. People will flock to the site who want to connect to each other but suffer from information overload.

Sharing a love of food is a primary way to gather with friends, and the site will ensure that the foodie in all of us will find a home here. What we read, watch, and listen to nourishes our thoughts and defines our outlook. What we choose to share and learn sustains our relationship to our chosen village...our friends. Enriching that process enriches our world. For 32 years, the relevance of connecting food and point of view is the cornerstone of our many successes at Ionia. This why we chose this idea to evolve our current 2.4 million endowment to its humble completion and transition from grant receiving to grant giving. The intention of The Equilibria Project is to attract large sustained numbers of micro donations for meaningful non-profit causes, while subtly improving society's relationships to the foundations of nourishment...food and thought.
