Phase 1: Land Acquisition


There is a perfect piece of land just outside of Asheville, NC.

We need to raise $250,000 by Autumn 2015 to acquire this land

(which also happens to be when the Cicadas return to this region).

The land you fund will teach teens and adults how grow food and cultivate wisdom

in the most magical way possible (and yes, you can visit).


What you get for your support toward the cost of the land:


$5 - $20: Cicada Institute sticker

$21 - $50: Sticker and website shout-out

$51 - $100: A seed planted in your honor, choice of wildflower, medicinal herb or garden vegetable

$101 - $500: Overnight stay at hostel with locally sourced meals and a private tour

$501 - $1000: 4-day stay at the hostel with private forest and city tour

$1001 - $5000: Free semester of adult classes (per each thousand)

$5001 - $10,000: Tree of Graciousness

$10,001 - $50,000: 1 year tuition or Design Legacy

$50,001 - $100,000: 2-year tuition for family member or Curriculum Legacy 

$100,001 and Beyond: 4-year tuition for family member or Legacy Building
