The world is full of amazing people, initiatives and ideas that need to be seen and heard. That's where we come in.
We are forging a massive media network of high-quality videos, podcasts, photos, articles and graphics which will give the community of change a coherent voice and a platform to share knowledge and solutions.
We also seek to focus on those who have already begun this process: so we're building a team of globe-trotting documentarians to capture and share the stories of people doing beautiful things in the fields of sustainability and community.
The #1 issue for positive initiatives is funding. We had tremendous success using a crowdfunding campaign to fund our Earthship-inspired greenhouse, but we recognize that many organizations don't have the marketing team required to make their campaigns successful.
So we decided to create GreenSeed, our very own crowdfunding platform made specifically for (freedom culture projects) sustainable community initiatives. GreenSeed allows us to connect amazing ideas with those who are most excited about seeing them come to life.
We love the communal nature of crowdfunding -- hundreds of strangers, from around the world, coming together with small contributions to turn one BIG idea into reality. This is co-creation at its finest and we're excited to facilitate this process for projects aimed at making this world more green and connected.
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

Once people are excited about the global movement towards self-reliance and community resiliency, the next step is providing them with the knowledge and experiences necessary to get things moving.
We are working with sustainability and community experts with decades of experience to build an online educational platform where cutting edge ideas are made accessible to everyone.
Our goal is to connect the community of changemakers by providing practical, first-hand experiences through conferences, workshops, and other physical events.
...is a collective state of being that empowers and encourages all individuals to contribute their unique gifts to the world.
Through ecologically sustainable lifestyles, economic self-reliance in local communities, and global collaborative action for the benefit of all, freedom culture can become the new normal.
Over the last year and a half at Valhalla we have learned a lot about sustainable communal living. We have had the opportunity to connect with tons of existing projects all over the world, some of which have been designing and implementing solutions for decades.
We've realized that the need is not just to build a network of on-the-ground communities; this network is already alive and growing.
What we really need is to share the story of existing projects with the world, while also starting and documenting new ones, so that freedom culture becomes not just feasible but highly desirable.
