Echoing Green and Social Entrepreneurship

23 Feb

Echoing Green is a social funding fellowship competition, that gives grand prize winners a chance to make their business a reality. See the website, and info at: http://www.echoinggreen.org/.

I just turned in the second phase of this application, competing with over 300 second round entrepreneurs to reach the final phase. If selected, I would be eligible for $90,000 over two years starting this September. This comes with business consulting and a life work. For me, this would mean the farm starts while I finish college.

*a big* update that makes this possible: just met with a partner, 10 years experience establishing and maintaining an organic farm. With a mind for the possible it’s…
Julio Valverdez: <mailto=”pezotevalverde@hotmail.com”
*he has single-handedly created the ANDAR farm, the most beautiful human ecosystem and preservation center I have ever seen.
*over the past years, he has been researching and designing a finca modela integral, which will be the start for an advising and model business.

This agency for organic farming can be a model. A connection and lifeline to preserve the small farmer way of life and earn a premium with global community and good will. The location, the grant, and the manager just moved into place. Echoing green would mean that we can start construction of a dream this fall.
