I wanted to reach out to everyone who has an interest in Permaculture. In the past when I formed the website www.codegreencommunity.com it was my intention to form a non profit entity. The cost to do so were prohibitive as well as the overall growth of my skills, talents, and general interest have changed as well over the years.
I would like to re-brand over 2014 Code Green Community as an online E-zine and community. Simply put we will focus our efforts at sharing stories from around the Tampa bay area and state of Florida toward transitioning our culture away from fossil fuels. Keeping our ning.com platform we will put out the call again for local bloggers, photos, videos, and events in and around Tampa bay but also beyond in the borders of Florida. The primary focus is producing meme and content creators. We will become a for profit and seek marketing from permaculture related businesses to publishable new content: Videos, a E-zine, blogs and more. I'm getting help from a former editor of Patch.com local website and hope to have a business plan I can share with you all by the end of the year. I'd like to offer a yearly subscription of $19.99 that will get you 4 magazines in digital form quarterly over 2014. The magazines will be full of content that will be eventually released online for free but as a Member you get a copy first. The website will remain free and all of the content will be free. The membership is just a voluntary way for you to help support the growth and production of great new content for our growing community. My personal goal is over the 2014 year to also publish 20 new youtubes- around 2 per month.
What content would you want to see on a permaculture e-magazine? My hope is to focus on what individuals and communities are doing throughout Florida that are growing resilience, preparedness, and transitioning our society away from fossil fuels. By sharing these stories and positive ambitions of others we can motivate other to achieve as well.
