The task of Living Systems Institute is to "heal nature, end poverty and abate climate change." Living Systems Institute produces change agents to improve our habitat, with the recognition that "our living system is built up from individual interactions -- it will be transformed by individuals changing the way they interact." A community investment enterprise helps those with challenges in our market economy to become change agents for their own lives, to become self-sustaining and productive, and be able to work to improve our habitat.
Through this community we will work to engage the unrealized human and biological potential of our neighborhoods. The projects listed below are designed to channel a flow of resources back on themselves through an interconnected pattern of interactions as described in the Agents of Habitat series.
We will start by serving meals high in protein and fresh vegetable to underserved neighbors. We will produce this food through a program to provide home maintenance services that employ LSI's integrated closed loop production systems. There will be many places where individuals can contribute to healing nature and our community. Details will be developed as we observe and interact with the larger community.
