Omnitribe & Soulective Present Earthday at Agave Farms 4/22/17

About EarthDay

DID YOU KNOW?
The first ever Earth Day took place on April 20, 1970, after Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson became concerned with an oil spill in Santa Barbara. With the help of 85 staff members, 20 million people throughout the country gathered in public spaces and universities to protest and discuss ways to protect the environment and defend the planet.
FAST FORWARD!
Present day, environmental awareness is blooming and people are getting more involved. Inspired by the No DAPL movement and the peaceful protest of the pipeline by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota, thousands and thousands of people from all over have gathered and taken a stand, protesting and discussing ways to protect sacred land and this beautiful planet. See the similarities?
WHAT IF?
Imagine 20 million people decided to mindfully make small actions toward helping make this Earth a better place and then just kept doing it. It could be as simple as everyone picking up a piece of trash in their hometown once every single day or planting a tree somewhere new once a week.
Earth Day is not just one day out of the year, but every day! Together we can clean up this planet and move towards a more sustainable and peaceful way of living.
“It takes a lot of people doing little things to make a big difference.”
The possibilities are endless.

“My art is that of holding sacred space. The degree to which I can hold space musically or in silence, on a stage or with a client on the massage table, determines if magic will happen. Whether we are dealing with the space between notes or the space between breaths, the healing power of my work happens when I get out of the way and allow Spirit to move through me.”
– Poranguí
As a live musician, world soul artist and one-man orchestra Poranguí weaves ancestral songs and indigenous rhythms from around the globe. Creating his performances from scratch using looping technology, Poranguí’s live grooves range from meditative to dance party, moving the body, lifting the spirit, and transcending the divide between performer and audience. An evening with Poranguí might take you on a journey from deep, earthy didgeridoo grooves to high-vibe ecstatic Brazilian beats to blissful African kalimba lullabies. Serenades and storytelling to beat boxing and booty shaking: Together, these make an unforgettable experience.
As a DJ, Poranguí performs funky tribal world house sets that integrate live instrumentation, a hybrid of his organic indigenous sound with a potent electronic bed that moves large dance floors. And in sound design and media production roles – including film soundtrack contributions – Poranguí’s work is informed by experience with photography and filmmaking.
For Poranguí, this rich practice of music, healing, teaching, performance, and creative collaboration represents the intersection of journeys both personal and professional.

About Omnitribe and PHX Tribal Nights

“Telling the PHX Tribal Nights story is no simple task. The extent of reach into the community and dedicated involvement of all contributors has been deep.

Members of the community have donated time, talent, money and resources to ensure a safe and sober healing and celebration space is available in Phoenix on a recurring basis.

The organizers and producers of the PHX Tribal Nights event have assembled into a core group and formed a leadership council to direct our mission into manifestation, to: Create intentional, safe and sacred spaces for sustainable and transformational community experiences.

This intention based focus has generated an umbrella organization for all future PHXTribal Nights events and community involvement, titled OMNITRIBE. It is under this new cause based organization that all future decisions will be made.

This objective was achieved organically and without controls or constraints originally. The cause and affect on other people’s lives has been significant. The Veterans of Arizona have been especially grateful and have called us to ever grater purpose.

The native community in Arizona has engaged in dialogue as well and many new partnerships have been formed with many more on the immediate and long-term horizon.

While PHX Tribal Nights has been the catalyst to these causes stepping forward, it is the OMNITRIBE intuition that the nature of this interest is due to a demand for a more unified, conscious culture in Arizona and the world at large.

Additionally, the council has begun a 5 year plan for a permaculture village and is beginning conceptual ideation and acreage visits for future festivals and growth opportunities.

The Phoenix Arizona OMNITRIBE 2017 council is:

Andrew Young
David Avatara
Nathaniel Jack Greene
Justin Winters
Aaron Hill
Daniel Hirz

Members are voted into the council and terms are being defined for a future collaborator nomination process.

In the meantime, we are operating weekly under this new model and are here to share the abundance provided to our community and ask for your support. We are currently seeking lead collaborators for various different roles that are required for each event and business operations as applicable. Lead Collaborators are our first sponsors and promotional opportunities are available.

Please attend PHX Tribal Nights Collaborators meetings for details on how you can be a part of this exciting new community in development.”

L-PHX Tribal Nights: Gathering to Celebrate-

Our mission is to create an experience that fosters a feeling of acceptance and encourages people to step outside their comfort zones. In this environment one can learn, grow, and connect deeply with themselves and others.

Decompression Tank (Firehouse)
This will be a space to relax and be replenished with various classes, herbs, elixirs and sounds. Here we will have sound healing and many other healing modalities. We envision floor couches, bodywork tables provided by SWIHA students to fulfill their internship hours, a teahouse in the corner, and an oxygen bar.

Movement Playground (Downtown on Central)
This space will be used to ground and release daily stress through moving meditation and inward expression. Music selection in this room will mainly be provided by DJs. Different Movement classes will be facilitated to allow full integration into the experience.

Drum Circles
Will happen sporadically throughout the night on the outside / inside patio off central.

Vendors
Only artists who create handmade goods and are based locally will be chosen to offer: Jewelry, Crystals, Essential Oils, Herbs. Art, Sculptures, Clothing, Flow Toys, and Face Painting. These vendors will be set up in the raised VIP area and directly behind the adjacent wall in the street facing room/patio.

Cafe
Items to keep stocked in the cafe during this event include different kinds of Kombucha, Cocoa, Kava, Tea, Natural Drinks (Lemonade, etc) and Smoothies. Also anything else considered to be Vegetarian, Vegan or Raw Gourmet. We are currently reaching out to other food vendors who can offer packaged food / drink options through the Cafe.

Alcohol:
Intoxication would be counterintuitive to authentic experience we want to create. Depending how this goes we may eventually for larger events, keep one room to wristbands and allow the sale of alcohol to draw in a wider audience needing transformation.

Throughout / Outside venue:
There will also be various art installations, For example, live and interactive / co-created art, Flow arts (Poi, Contact Staff, Hoop, Fans, Silks, Slackline, Acrobatics, Stilt Walking), Flow Art workshops, Poetry or Open Mic, Tarot / Oracle / Palm readings, 3D video mapping / Projections

Local DJ’s
We plan on starting organically with local DJ’s and eventually save up to invest in a Headliner. This is subject to change based on sponsorship funding.

Dance Performers
Just like the DJ’s we plan on starting organically. There are many dancers in the community that would perform for free, but our goal is to be successful enough to pay everyone their fair share.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

DIGITAL PERMACULTURE DOME STRUCTURES FEATURED IN MOVIE “THE SPACE BETWEEN US” 

 

Digital Permacultures custom dome structures have been featured in feature length film “The Space Between Us”

In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet – never revealing who the father is.

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing. While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins an online friendship with a street smart girl in Colorado named Tulsa.

When he finally gets a chance to go to Earth, he’s eager to experience all of the wonders he could only read about on Mars – from the most simple to the extraordinary. But once his explorations begin, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere.

Eager to find his father, Gardner escapes the team of scientists and joins with Tulsa on a race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be, and where he belongs in the universe.

About Digital Permaculture

“We are Digital Permaculture and we’ve invented a new style of digitally fabricated art. Based here in AZ USA, we use custom coded software we developed that enables us to build custom geodesic structures for rental or sale. “

“We are artists developing a brand new building style using upcycled or recycled steel and other materials. We make steel into hyper complex geodesic “spaceframes” bigger than buildings using the custom software we wrote. We see the geodesic art as a vehicle to help raise awareness around geodesic architecture and its potentially beneficial implementation into future city projects and arcology designs, as well as to bring awareness to the works of and ideas of the writer, scientist, and inventor, Buckminster Fuller.

“We can use drones to 3d scan an area, create models, choose materials, use custom fabrication facilities in phoenix, and assemble and build/dress on site with fabric or led lights (solar powered for standalone projects) we have many options for the area, and our business is creating custom structures to fit an area or project.”

MARCH 28TH 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Woven Light Bridge by Digital Permaculture to appear at The Market Street Prototyping Festival in Mesa AZ November 10th & 11th 2017

Digital Permaculture has been accepted into the The Main Street Prototyping Festival http://marketstreetprototyping.org 

The Main Street Prototyping Festival is led by a collaborative team made up of representatives from the City of Mesa, Downtown Mesa Association (DMA), Neighborhood Economic Development Corporation (NEDCO), LISC Phoenix and Mesa Arts Center (MAC) https://www.mesaartscenter.com/ http://bettermarketstreetsf.org/ 

Main Street Prototyping Festival applicants submit proposals to create temporary projects – from gathering places to pathways, from games to performances to interactive artwork – that activate public space and engage the community toward enhancing connectivity and vibrancy in Downtown Mesa. The temporary design installations (prototypes) will be showcased in a two-day festival in November 10th & 11th 2017 and residents will be invited to vote for their favorites.

[Prototyping: (noun) to create and test an experimental model of a new idea or object.]

Out of the submissions received, 20-25 proposals will be accepted. The prototypes will turn Downtown Mesa into a creative playground—a place for interacting, sharing ideas and engaging in new ways. Visitors will have opportunities to provide feedback and vote on their favorite ideas.

Installations will activate Main Street public spaces from Country Club Dr. to Sirrine, and between 1st Ave & 1st Street, in the heart of Mesa. The event will allow pedestrians to experience, explore, and interact with the prototype installations. It is hoped that the community’s favorite ideas can be moved forward for longer-term prototyping, and possible permanent installations of select projects, in the future.

The Main Street Prototyping Festival asks residents, artists, and urban planners to dream, design ideas and discover a more welcoming, diverse and connected downtown Mesa.

Installations will activate Main Street public spaces from Country Club Dr. to Sirrine, and between 1st Ave & 1st Street, in the heart of Mesa. The event will allow pedestrians to experience, explore, and interact with the prototype installations. It is hoped that the community’s favorite ideas can be moved forward for longer-term prototyping, and possible permanent installations of select projects, in the future.

Selected submissions will be displayed for public interaction during the 2-day Festival, Friday – Saturday, November 10-11, 2017. The festival will also include outdoor performances and food.

OUR GOALS

ENGAGING COMMUNITY

Actively engage the local community in planning and shaping the future of downtown.

Increase the number of people who have a sense of ownership in downtown.

BRIDGING DIVERSE RELATIONSHIPS

Build strong relationships within and between the South of Broadway communities and downtown.

Seek, communicate and welcome the involvement and participation of people from diverse

backgrounds, ages and cultures.

PLACEMAKING

Further develop Downtown Mesa as an arts-centered, friendly and innovative place with an increasingly exciting urban center.

Create an interactive festival with exciting prototypes and extraordinary experiences that inspire community participation and feedback.

Woven Light Bridge by Digital Permaculture

This is a thirty-two foot wide handmade geodesic archway constructed of recycled steel and wrapped in woven LED lights and fabric.  

Size = 32 foot across – 15 foot high – 6 feet deep

This is a 32 ft wide archway wrapped in woven LED lights and fabric.  

Mock up with model

We are going to do a new style of fabric which consists of diamond patches of spandex stretch fabric.  The LED style is similar to the picture in the middle.  The gaps in the LED’s will be filled with diamond shaped fabric patches.  The fabric is translucent and will light up from the LED’s as well as prevent any unsupervised pedestrians from climbing on the structure.

The structure provides a very pleasing, slowly fading, interwoven rainbow of light.  The LED’s are not covered with fabric and face straight out from the structure.  It will be amazing to see at night and will light up the whole area, providing a pleasant area to congregate at night and discuss new ideas.  It activates a space by freeing people’s minds through shapes and colors.

It will consist of 12, 36 watt LED strips.  432 watts maximum power.  This is about 1/4th the power of a blow dryer so we can easily plug it in anywhere there is a plug.  You can see the LED pattern below on the left.  This installation will not have the star.  In the gaps between the LED’s there will be diamond shaped spandex fabric patches.  The star illustrates what the diamond patches will look like.  The gaps between the fabric and structure create a whimsical design.  We don’t want to cover the LED’s.  We want them to be visible at their maximum brightness.  This will make the installation visible for blocks and draw people in.

This design is proven to be safe and easy to install at many events and locations.  We have done similar installations at Gem and Jam Music Festival in Tucson, Az in 2014 and 2015.  Euphoria Music Festival in Austin, Tx in 2015.  Caliroots Music Festival in Sacramento, Ca in 2015.  Tempe Farmers Market in 2015 and many other locations.  We know this is an easy to install design.  We are building a fresh archway which is larger than the one in the pictures, stronger and easier to assemble.  We are augmenting it with improved LED’s and fabric.

Digital Permaculture Ecovillage Starts Up in the Philippines

#DigitalPermaculture #Ecovillage #StartUp #Philippines #new #post #davidavatara @vii23 @digiperm

 

Digital Permaculture goes world wide !

We are selling cabins in the mountains overlooking the ocean on Cebu island in the Philippines. You get a cabin and a share in the growing eco-community we are building out here. The first one is on the market for $9000.

Contact David Avatara if interested vii23@digitalpermaculture.com

heres the 411

Digital Permaculture 1.0

Who is a good fit for this project:

This project is a good fit for you if you work online, can take long vacations or are worried about a collapse of America due to (insert favorite problem here). I used to design computer chips, but I have always wanted to build sustainable housing. So I decided to change careers and become a builder. I want to specialize in building affordable, beautiful, sustainable eco-villages. I prefer to work with conventional building systems and I engineer effective solutions for the local climate and resources. I do not believe in earthships, cob houses or most of the ancient building styles. They are no longer mainstream because they are not as good as more modern systems. I’m also an artist. I spent a few years building free form geodesic art for many festivals and I want to eventually mix in an art component to the project, but right now I am focused on more basic endeavors like food and sanitation.

If you plan on living here full time you need some form of income which will allow you to earn a little bit of money while living here. A good number is around $300 per month for a single and about $500 per month for a couple. There are things that you will need to buy, like dental care and health care. Right now we don’t have much food production operational. The project is just starting. So you will want to buy your own food. Most food is really cheap around here and usually organic. It’s more agrarian and low tech here. More healthy. They don’t dose their meat with antibiotics and hormones, then freeze it and ship it halfway around the earth. They make it the old fashion way. I feel a lot healthier living out here because there food supply is much simpler and not so processed and full of crap.

You have to be able to purchase into the project at full cash value. There will be no loans. I’m keeping the prices affordable but this project is for the people who have the discipline and determination to be able to come up with the cash. I cannot invite people into the project who have the potential to become liabilities in the future. If you don’t have the discipline, intelligence, work ethic, etc. to come up with the buy in price you could become a liability in the future.

This project is a good fit for you if you want a turnkey dwelling. Specialization and trades are a huge contributing factor to our shared prosperity. You probably don’t knit your own socks. You probably don’t etch your own computer chips. Let a professional build your house. You’ll get much better value. It takes a lot of effort to learn to navigate the business and political spheres out here. It takes a lot of effort to become a good builder. I can spread this cost over multiple cabins and offer you a much better product than you could build yourself. If we all try to build our own houses it’s going to result in a chaotic mess of half finished projects. I’m offering turnkey only. You focus on what you are good at. Work a few more hours at your job. Save up some money. You can’t compete with the local labor force anyway. A skilled filipino carpenter will work twice as hard as you for about $2 per hour or less. You can’t compete so don’t try.

The Philippines are amazing about 10 months out of the year. It does get hot during the summer. If you have a decent job in America which would allow you to take long vacations, this project would be a good fit for you. You get a free 30 day visa when you land in the Philippines. Visa extensions are not too expensive. You can buy a used motorbike for $500 and store it on our land. In general, everything is cheap here. All the locals love foreigners too. It’s like being a celebrity. Most people speak some or a lot of english. All the textbooks and schooling is done in English. So most educated people speak English. It’s very easy to get around.

This project isn’t for everyone. If you think it’s a good fit for you and you meet the criteria above, come try it out. I am willing to rent you a house for one month for 5% of the sales price. At the end of the month, you can apply your rent to the purchase of the share or if you are not happy with the project, we part ways. The rent is non-refundable. Only transferable to a purchase. I want to grow a vibrant community and it is in my interests that you are satisfied and happy with the purchase.

Land and Location:

The property is located on 3.5 hectares in the mountains above a small town on the western coast of Cebu island. 3.5 hectares is about 8 acres. I like living up in the mountains because it is cooler during the summer. The temperature here is almost very nice year around. Because it’s an island, it never gets too cold. It can get a bit hot sometimes. I would compare it to Southern California, except really humid. Maybe a bit hotter than Hawaii, but I’ve never been to Hawaii so I don’t know. It’s pretty nice here for 10 months out of the year. In the big cities or down by the coast, it can get a lot hotter so I like the mountains.

Another specific advantage of this location is bats, lots of bats. Mosquitos are a big pain in the butt. I got lucky because there seems to be a ton of bats where I live and not too many mosquitos. At night we light a coil of incense that keeps the rest of them away. If I go out of the house and work in the brush, there are lots of mosquitos, but I can just wear bug repellant. I’m hopping in a few years people will eradicate mosquitos using a gene drive or maybe we can get automated laser bug zappers (look up the photonic fence). Until then, we are just going to cultivate the local bat population. We are going to be building bat houses in fruit trees we are planting. The bats will fertilize the trees. It’s a win/win all around.

The land is hilly and rocky. The rock is a very soft limestone. I got a jackhammer today. I anticipate it will go through it like butter. I have a big piece of rebar that I can use now to chip away at the stone and it’s pretty easy to form. I think it would be awesome to carve paths and stairways in the stone using the jack hammer. I’m drooling over the possibilities of LED lit stairways made of chipped stone. There are all sorts of creative possibilities. Eventually, maybe we can get some heavy equipment and really have some fun, but for now I think a jack hammer will open up a lot of possibilities for carving our infrastructure into the mountain. Because the weather is nice all year out here, it’s possible to have a mixture of indoor and outdoor infrastructure. Things like building a shower onto a fruit tree sounds like an awesome idea. The possibilities are endless.

The land is located at 10.728978, 123.851511. Oddly enough, Google must have mapped my road this summer because you can see the entrance to my driveway on Google street view. Lol! Here is a link that shows the driveway. It’s the rough path up the hill. Those are mostly mahogany trees. My first house is mostly framed with all local mahogany that came right off the land. The driveway still needs a bit of work, but that’s what the jackhammers are for.

The Town and The Locals:

Filipinos are mostly warm and friendly. They all say hello as I drive by. They call out ‘Hey Joe!’ all the time. My name isn’t Joe, but it’s local slang for American or something. I think it comes from WWII when the GI Joe’s liberated the island. Or maybe a TV show. I’m not totally sure. Life is really relaxing here. There isn’t much to do. There is a local spring where everyone goes swimming. You can also snorkel along the coast. The sunsets are amazing.

If you are single, man or woman, the locals will all go crazy for you. Expect to have an unreasonable amount of attention. You won’t know what to do at first.

Water:

Currently there is not a good water source on the land. We are connected to city water, but it does not flow the entire year. We have water delivered to a 275 gallon tote next to our house. It is enough to last us over a month. It costs about $12 to have a local fill it. They strap a bunch of 5 gallon containers to their motorbike and ferry water from down in the city. We are talking to the local village about our options for getting a more secure water source. We also might drill a well. We anticipate we could drill a well for about $5000. This might be built into the future phases of this project. A portion of the money from each cabin goes to future expansions and improvements and water is very high on that list of thing we need. However, for the time being, it’s quite cheap and easy to just get my tank filled up.

Food Production:

Currently I am growing trees from seeds and cuttings. I am hoping this summer that a friend of mine will be joining the project. He’s is really amazing at growing things and gardening. He runs a tree maintenance business in Phoenix and is very active in urban farming and farmers markets. I’m going to start experimenting with aquaponics and chickens soon. It’s been slow setting things up. Things move slow out here. We are on filipino time.

Phases:

I’m taking it one step at a time. I’m going to build a cabin, then sell it, then build another, then sell it and so on. Improving the designs and improving the land as I go. Currently I have my current cabin up for offer. It’s a 384 sq ft cabin. It’s about 1 ½ stories. It’s 16 ft by 16 ft on the ground floor with an 8 ft by 16 ft loft. It’s mahogany framing. Most of the wood came from the actual land. It was pretty cool. Two guys came out with a huge chainsaw and chopped and rough cut the timber. Carpenters made the house with mostly hand tools and one electric planer. The local craftsman are really awesome. The loft is made of bamboo and mahogany. It’s a mahogany staircase. There are five glass windows and a solid mahogany door.

The roof is made of nipa. It’s a local plant. However, it leaked really bad. So we put galvanized steel sheets under it. It’s a good mix. The nipa keeps the house cool. The steel stops the leaks. You’ll have to replace the roof every four years or so, but it’s only about $100 for a new roof. There is a long screen window on the loft that looks out over the ocean. The sunsets are amazing.

The asking price is $9000. You get the cabin plus a share in the project and access to the rest of the land. You don’t get all the land, just a share. I plan on eventually having a large community up here, but I’m figuring out things as I go. Somewhere around 12 cabins is probable a good size. You can try before you buy and you can also resell your cabin and share in the project. You can add onto your cabin a bit, but you can’t start building extra cabins. You can’t quadruple the size of your cabin and invite your whole family to come live with you. Etc.Be reasonable. You can build whatever artwork and communal spaces you want. Outdoor pools. Pizza ovens. Whatever, as long as the community wants it and it isn’t too huge.
