3. Heirloom vegetables are open-pollinated, which means you can save your own seeds to…

Coops would operate as barter systems (example: exchange/ship northern clime produce with southern tropical clime produce, coffee, etc) Energy grids on local/regional basis using solar, wind, methane/biofuels-whatever is best for given geographic areas.

Use some type of bitcoin system as convenient medium for barter exchanges. Barter systems not just…
