Our Dream – The Grand Ecovillage Vision
The worldwide ecovillage vision has its roots in civil society saying: this is how we want to live with each other and our children; this is how we want to live with the natural world, plants and animals. This is how we want to reinvent ourselves as humans. “We are not a collection of objects but a community of subjects”. Economics and technology must adapt to that – not the other way round. In this way society can be structured to reflect spiritual and natural laws. We wish to be free from enslavement to capitalism.
The First of Peacetown Products
Power for the poor
(Soon available as a DIY e book $29

TODAY’S RURAL POOR
Before we come to the solution for helping the poor we have to consider their present day situation first.
Now here is how the poor live at present with no electricity or tap water.
Then, unfortunately… this is how they have to cook and the whole family suffers the dangerous smoke and polluted water issues.
And here is the Solution ;
Now please see this rural life upgrade with the stove installed compared to the “smoke room”.
LIGHTS ,lanterns,torches, Radio for music,live sport,news etc. Smartphone for communication, Internet education and TV soon.
HOW IT WORKS
The stove’s small fire-tube classifier fully utilizes the fires huge power potential and thereby providing all the following 1st world comforts while everyday… cooking.
Its neat, burns it’s own smoke, and safe*.
But!!! – The stoves have to be donated simply because the poor… are poor.
Sooooo…that’s the plan with help from donor organisations to help the poor in rural ares.
The idea of “a stove that does it all” is actually obvious…IF you lived in the bush like I did and experienced the problems. After I was forced back to the rat race of city life I just had to start experimenting with this project… every weekend.
Below is a typical South African rural village.
Unfortunately, we have to consider these hard hitting facts from WHO.
More than three billion people still burn wood, dung, coal and other traditional fuels inside their homes. The resulting indoor air pollution is responsible for more than 1.5 million deaths a year – mostly of young children and their mothers. Moreover, indoor air pollution and inefficient household energy practices are a significant obstacle to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
In contrast, increasing fuel efficiency through better stoves can reduce health risks for all family members. Beyond curbing respiratory problems, a more secure household energy situation enables water to be boiled and thus helps reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases. A closed, raised stove prevents infants and toddlers falling into the fire or knocking over pots of hot liquid and being burned or scalded. Closing the household energy gap can, therefore, be a springboard for achieving the health-related Millennium Development Goals.
GOALS & APPEAL
Backyard mechanics : If you can use these tools YOU can make the stove.
We also hope to have funds to continue research and development leading to the stove now becoming a 1st world off-grid household product (as a free natural gas burner), minimizing the use of wood and having near zero pollution. We are confident with your help we can get this next prototype successfully built as well. This stove will become a safe free gas generator, but it is much more than just that. The stove has several natural convection systems integrated into our one core unit (through many trials) resulting in this already highly efficient … “stove that does it all”.
Then (sorry to say) there are the international fund-raisers for rural development who raise millions … but reject good product funding like mine and all others.
Please help fund this project and you will help create a world that makes sure inventors have exposure to better this world so all people can live a happy healthy life. We unitedly can now continue to create a new clean world geared at preventing the destruction of nature and the exploitation of this beautiful earth as is happening today.
Please join the visionaries to eventually STOP this;
NEW WORLD beauty
Imagine the whole world like this beautiful picture…and at peace.
This stove (power for the poor) is just the beginning of free off grid home power.
Of course, there will be critics of this stove as old fashioned compared to modern life, but please do tell if you believe power stations survive huge natural disasters?
Either way…the only power available then will be the Creators power;
To the farmers, the”back to the landers” and Ecovillages Worldwide :
Also…If anyone is wondering why solar panels are not used, it’s because anything of value that is outside will be ripped off the roof and stolen.

Rural Job Creation
Bakery. Takeaway. health water. Cell phone charging, soap making*.
I believe all the existing large donors organisations for rural development will come on board once they see the huge benefits the poor enjoy when this stove is installed.
I also look forward to useful comments and association.
Any help will be appreciated.
The making of Peacetown South Africa.
The back-to-the-land movement…
The movement calls for communal occupants of land, to grow food on a small-scale basis for themselves or for others, and to live on the land while doing so. Each smallholder is to own and build their own home on a minimum of one hectare of productive land. Individual businesses are encouraged and supported here.
The back-to-the-land movement, is a migration from cities to rural areas, its greatest vigor being before the mid-1970s. There have been back-to-the-land population movements throughout the centuries, and throughout the world, largely due to the occurrence of severe urban problems as we in S.A. now experience. Increasingly people feel the need to live a better life, often simply to survive.
The need for Peacetown Ecovillages in South African.
With South Africa gaining the title of “crime capital of the world”, it has become evident that Mr Mandela’s vision of a rainbow nation, with peace and prosperity for all, has been destroyed.
Safety has become the number one priority for all South Africans, with all living in constant fear daily, and having to lock themselves up at night.
20,000 murders a year,rapes every 24 seconds, housebreaking,car hijacking, robbery and crimes committed…. every second.
With this out of control, unacceptable evil in mind, Peacetown ecovillages become the solution for the God fearing people or our rainbow nation imprisoned by crime.
Not only will these havens offer residents a peaceful and safe environment, it will also strive to provide a natural eco-friendly habitat that selected talents and families will prosper in.
Many South Africans have resorted to emigrating to other parts of the world, in an attempt to escape the criminal elements of this beautiful country. Now, with
the Peacetown concept, they will no longer have to sacrifice their birthplace for foreign territory.
Peacetown provides decent South Africans with a natural environment that they can truly embrace. It is time that South Africans once again raised their families within the safety of a peaceful and moral commune. That time is now!
Let us be pro-active and secure the future of our families. Let us stop living with the evil we face daily. Let us make our homes in Peacetown, where peace of mind is no longer an unheard of myth, but a daily occurrence.
Unfortunately today in South Africa, smallholder farming has been abandoned as the masses invade the cities . Political leaders worldwide thrive on greedy capitalism, and so, “the rich get richer and the poor poorer”.
This mess today in South Africa, has led to total overcrowded cities and illegal shack-dwellers, increasing crime and poverty, while most of the land is sparsely inhabited or left to erode.
This beautiful land is screaming to be tended and productive again.
“The animals and trees will rejoice with you people”
Can anybody name just one government department that is free of corruption? Or one person who is unaffected by crime? Is there any place in South Africa, where you will feel safe with your family? The answers to these questions may have you pondering for a long time, yet you will still end up back at a negative response.
For decent people EVERYTHING is just getting worse and worse, but for the criminal everything is getting better and better. We say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and to leave the criminals to steal from each other and kill each other rather … instead of the innocent.
It is time for decent people to move… and stop being imprisoned by crime.
It is time for peace, time to remove the shackles, and time to live with God’s creation… our Mother earth.
A Peacetown is simply a HUGE privately owned community farm, an ecovillage, where selected God-fearing people live self-sufficiently on their own land as a nation. Mandela’s dream of a “true” Rainbow Nation is realized at this sanctuary. We are farmers, artisans,teachers,talented individuals and traders, offering visitors a natural and peaceful getaway. Totally self sufficient with no unemployment and NO CRIME. A Peacetown.
Investors will be selected according to their vision and talents. You don’t have to be rich… but ethical and God-fearing only. Skilled pensioners are most welcome especially tradesmen and teachers for our skills development school and university.
Forget racism too, because the real divide is in the fact that there are only two types of people in this world; The good… and the evil. The good choose to live with God fearing people only, and AWAY from the evil killers,drug lords, addicts, rapists and thieves, dominating and terrorizing the good and innocent, in this otherwise very beautiful… land of South Africa.
Peacetown is unlike other so called “security estates” where anyone is allowed as long as you have the millions, no matter what you are, or how your wealth was obtained.
Now at Peacetown, one hector plots will be available only to decent qualifying persons with talents, and then for only R500/month with an agreed 1 month notice period.
For security from “land grabs”, Peacetown iprefers a 100 year lease (debatable), but insists on moral people only.
We live off the earth naturally, tending it, and having in subjection the animals and the trees as created.
We have the vision of seeing a Peacetown in every province of South Africa, sharing and supporting each other. We feel that if the good unite as a moral nation, then the fight for the survival of our families, WILL succeed.
Let our homes bring peace to nature’s garden as we remove ourselves from the corrupt evil and their concrete jungle.
