What is an Eco-Ark?[edit | edit source]

Similar to an Ecovillage, except the focus is concentrated on preservation and propagation of botanical life forms rather than sustenance farming. Focus is on propagation and redistribution of plant species, with food, fiber, and medicine as by-products.

Characteristics of an Eco-Ark[edit | edit source]

  • Self-Sustaining Hydration: Location should provide sufficient water to maintain plant life with little or no human intervention.
  • Permaculture Design: Planting of proper species suited to a specific climate that can self propagate in a particular region.
  • Accessibility: The Eco-Ark should be located where it can be beneficial to those who wish to make use of it.
