Land Projects

The intention of this section is to provide tools and resources for establishing land projects and advancing them from a state of ‘surviving’ to ‘thriving’.

In this section, we will review the following steps:

  • Manifesto
  • Vision
  • Whiteboard
  • Roadmap
  • Investment

The steps in this section may provide you with an understanding of one way you can turn your ideas into matter.


The manifesto is a living, breathing document. It represents the essence of your land project.

The founder is the channel that receives the messages which speak to what your project is calling. What’s important to the land? What does the land believe? Why are these ways of being and doing important?

This document will evolve as the core team joins and begins to sew themselves into the living document. The document is shaped by the team as your land project transitions from ‘I’ to ‘We’ – from founder to team. Practically speaking, the founder will share this evolving document with each new person invited into the team.


The intention is to organize the people who will be on/who already are on the core team. This can happen in two steps:

(1) Walk the Land: the founder invites potential team members to build their own relationship with the land. This can happen 1:1 or in groups.

The outcome of this facilitated experience is for each receptive person to connect with themselves while immersed in the nature of the land. In being with the land, it creates space for each person to become a channel alongside the founder.

(2) Dreamweaving: the founder makes a list of the people to invite into a 2-3 hour Dreamweaving Session.

The outcome of this facilitated experience is for each person to create a vision board. Families may create one, if they choose. The boards represent what the people see and feel when they imagine a future in your land project. Each person/family gets a turn to share their board as the people begin to stitch and weave their dreams into a collective tapestry of what’s possible.


Invite receptive people who consciously work to deepen their connection with themselves and with nature; they have an increasing capacity to act with less ego; and they take responsibility for creating their own reality.

The “right” people being involved at this early stage can be critical because these people represent the culture which will soon radiate out into all corners of your land project. This session is a “yes, and…” way of being – there are no bad ideas.


After Dreamweaving, the people have had space to express themselves, begin to feel seen, and may now be ready to start bringing their dreams down to the earth. We do this, practically, in a team whiteboard session.

The process is similar to the way rain falls to the earth. Distill the dreams into water so they can fall from the sky and nourish the eart.

The outcome of this facilitated session is a comprehensive list of all potential projects and components that may happen at your land project. This session is a “yes, and…” way of being. There are no bad ideas.


The intention of this step is to prioritize the contents from the whiteboard into an intentional sequence.

Each project is organized into teams and is planted into the earth as a seed which can grow and become itself. The outcome is a three year roadmap with high-level milestones and a detailed 3-6 month roadmap which shows the project manager what’s being worked on, what will be worked on, by who, by when, etc.

The roadmap(s) become the compass and backbone for direction. This is created with the project manager and is handed off to them to take responsibility for advancing the project(s) forward.


After items on this page are complete, create a 3D model of your land project as if it were ‘done’. Use the model + roadmap + vision + and manifesto to begin organizing early investors to raise the first round of capital.
