We are currently in an age of disempowerment for a vast portion of the population. All around the world the promise of prosperity according to our concept of a 'free market' has not born fruit for most citizens. Folks representing all stripes find themselves feeling disempowered by a system that has cast them from their job while narrowing future opportunity in a number of strategic ways. We seem to consistently ignore the fact that the intent of industrialization, an important factor of current global markets is to replace human labor with technology. What to do with those lives 'freed' from the 'drudgery' of their own labor? We haven't answered that question.
In an age when one has no control over their career, no control over most social problems, no control over major systems or even their very own food supply a feeling of helplessness ensues. I am here to tell you WE ARE MORE THAN MERE CONSUMERS.
Our position as Organics to Energy Developers came about for a number of factors.
- A sincere interest in working towards a more diversified and democratic agriculture and general business community.
- To solve several environmental and social problems with one simple process.
- A desire to work with large and small investors, local banks and vendors with a business model that encourages local control over energy, finance and business.
- A complete focus on long-term goals. Our strategic planning and project development purposefully avoids short-term thinking. Long-term planning is community building by design.
A network of diversified communities with a vibrant business sector breeds a sense of community. A Sense of Empowerment. A sense of Creativity.
Organics to Energy projects, when coupled with the right long-term economic development policy can play a prime role in supporting entrepreneurship and local control.
