Community Supported Seawater Greenhouse!

Dear Fellow Liberty Lovers,

Below is a copy of a fundraiser I just started; let me know what you guys think!

Seawater Greenhouse in United Arab Emirates

This fundraiser is for building a Community Supported Seawater Greenhouse in an arid coastal desert. Basically the idea is similar to a CSA or Community Supported Agriculture program, except the main difference being that instead of a traditional farm this will be formed around a Seawater Greenhouse. The idea is also unique in that its main purpose is charitable; it is intended to help impoverished people living in an arid coastal desert by enabling them to work in the greenhouse in exchange for a share of its produce, i.e. pure fresh water and organic food.

The Community Supported Seawater Greenhouse will be designed to be economically sustainable so that all operating costs are paid for by sales of the produce; any profits that are subsequently generated will be shared by the members and reinvested to maintain, expand, and ultimately build more Community Supported Seawater Greenhouses in a self replicating fashion.

When this fundraiser meets its goal it will be more than enough to build a Seawater Greenhouse roughly the size of the one in the picture above, or about 800 square meters or so, below is an image of the organic produce that is currently being grown there.
