Our mission is to showcase the means for all countries to achieve self-reliance, and independence, with the use of advanced technologies, and materials, available today.
This project is geared to establish a natural rubber industry, beginning in Ashland, OR, in order to show the availability of high density growing systems that reduce water used, while growing the rare Kazakh 'Rubber Root' dandelion (Taraxacum koksagyhz), noted for its content of high quality natural rubber latex in its thick, long roots. food produced, in urban and rural settings. Our nation faces a deficit/shortfall of 1.5 million metric tons / 30 billion pounds of natural rubber by 2020, with the global demand of 17 million metric tons, 20% over current supply of this vital commodity, used by manufacturers of over 40,000 products that depend on it, including tires. In order to upscale production of natural rubber, using a water based extraction system, it will require us to use high density growing systems, in our greenhouses, and plant tissue micropropagation of clonal plants to greatly increase our plantings.
The new Vertrexx system, offered by <www.verdtech.com>, is ideal for vertical, high density plantings of 'Rubber Root' plants, and the desert 'Rubber Plant', Guayule (Parthenium argentatum), being developed by Dr. Katrina Cornish, and her company, Energyene. <www.energyene.com>. Guayule rubber was used by
the Aztecs long ago to make balls for their bloody games where winning teams were offered up as sacrifices to their gods. Mexico used this source for natural rubber during World War II to make tires
when the Japanese cut off Asian rubber sources.

Dandelion Root Natural Rubber Latex for America's Future
Russian Rubber Dandelions yield valuable natural rubber latex in their thick roots, an answer our country needs to build a homegrown rubber industry as it now imports all natural rubber from five Asian countries who use the Brazilian 'rubber' tree, now threatened by fungal infections. Active pursuit of Dandelion Rubber is going on now in Asia, Europe, and the Americas to bring sustainably grown rubber to global markets.

Precision Structural Engineering (PSE) <www.structure1.com> in Medford, and Klamath Falls, is able to build massive greenhouse structures for us to grow our plants year round.
Ashland, Oregon, Global Headquarters of Earth Stewards Trust & White Tiger Farm
With over 30 years of professional experience as a gourmet chef, executive chef, and private chef, to A-List celebrities in Hollywood, as well as corporations, and as a caterer, in Southern California, Chef Alexandra Delaris Hannah, is now in Ashland, OR, and eager to fill her role as President of the White Tiger Farm.
Marx Foods, a specialty food company, in Seattle, offers many fresh, gourmet culinary herbs to chefs, cooks, caterers. <www.marxfoods.com> Many of the herbs they offer now we will be growing, as well as many they do not offer. They sell six pounds of generic passion fruit for a retail price of $148 and we have access to over a dozen varieties. A pound of fresh mint leaves for $62 and a pound of fresh Kaffir Lime leaves is offered for $102, these are examples of what gourmet clientele are willing to pay for fresh
culinary produce, organically grown.
Greenhouse Grown Cacao Trees for Fine Chocolate Production in Oregon
From breeders of the increasingly popular 'freshwater lobsters' Marron, and Redclaw crayfish, native to Australia, we will be able to get breeding stock for these gourmet treats. The Marron crayfish is the third largest crayfish in the world, the only giant crayfish being commercially raised at this time, which grows to an average weight of five pounds at four years from hatching. Its smaller cousin, the Redclaw, matures at an average weight of 1.5 pounds at two years from hatching, these are ideal for use in the three tiered aquaponic system offered by Glynn Barber at <www.ecsia.us>. Glynn uses the Redclaw in his system,
and has perfected a new hatching system to increase survival rate of juvenile hatchlings.

We will market our rare culinary herbs through the American Culinary Federation <www.acfchefs.org> to their over 20,000 member chefs in 225 chapters across the country. Through the specialty food magazines,
such as 'Gourmet', 'Saveur', 'Food & Wine', 'Art Culinaire', 'Gastronomica', 'Fine Cooking', 'Epicurious' and 'Bon Appetit', we will reach gourmet clients in many countries. Food Fairs, sponsored by the Specialty Food Association, <https://www.specialtyfood.com> will give us greater exposure to retailers of fine food cherished by gourmet chefs, cooks and caterers, around the world.
Our giant greenhouse structures will enable us to produce fast growing, species, year round. Giant timber bamboos are available for production of thousands of items, such as those from Tradewinds Bamboo, in Gold Beach, OR <www.bamboodirect.com> and the Quindembo Bamboo Nursery, on the Big Island of Hawai'i at <www.bamboonursery.com>. We will get wild Criollo cacao trees from the rainforests of Guatemala to build an artisan chocolate industry with Oregon Chocolatiers, such as those who attend the annual Oregon Chocolate Festival, held at the Ashland Springs Hotel, in Ashland. <www.ashlandspringshotel.com/oregon-chocolate-festival>
At this time the Hawaiian islands have the finest genetics available in Cacao cultivars being raised to establish an estate chocolate industry to compete in the growing global market for cocoa and fine, organic chocolates. <www.hawaiichocolate.org>
BioDome Greenhouses to over 300 feet in diameter for Tropical Species
Eventually we will use our sustainable harvests of plant biomass to produce surplus electrical power for upload to local grids, using the 'Green Power House' from Algae AquaCulture Technologies in Whitefish, MT, with each GPH unit able to produce six megawatts of power daily, along with biodiesel, and the soil amendment, Regenisys. <www.algaeaqua.com> By working with Richard Hurding, Executive Director, at Zelfo Technology GmbH, in Germany, <www.zelfotechnology.com> we will be able to turn our surplus plant cellulose into Biothermo-plastic, reinforced with Cellulose Nano Crystals (CNC), derived from woody plants grown on our farm sites. Perhaps we may even be able to make plastic roads working with a new startup in Europe, using our biodegradable, plant based bio-plastic. <www.plasticroad.eu>
With access to abundant Carbon, in sugars derived from plants, it will be possible to produce Graphene, single layers of Carbon atoms, and products made from it, such as Graphene Rebar Foam, and Aerographene. <http://extremetech.com/extreme/153063-graphene-aerogel-is-seven-times-lighter-than-air-can-balance-on-a-blade-of-grass> By working with Dr. Jim Tour, Tour Group, Rice University, we will work together to develop, and produce, his Graphene Rebar Foam material, as a feedstock for new 3d printers,
and printing technologies.
Our product line will include 3d printed added value products, made from CNC enhanced bio-thermoplastic, made from plant fibers. Zelfo Technology GmbH, in Germany, is prepared to build bio-thermoplastic production facilities once we have the plant biomass to supply it, and a light industrial area. <www.zelfotechnology.com>
A company in Italy, <www.wasproject.it> offers us their 'infinite digital manufacturing process' and line of 3d printers, including one that is able to handle cellulose material, and concrete, to literally print out homes, and entire communities. Their WASP 12M Big Delta 3d printer can print out objects and structures to 12 meters / 36' high.
'Cellulose Nanocrystals Make Plastic 3,000 Times Stronger', according to Dr. William Winter, Executive Director, Cellulose Research Institute. ------ <www.nanowerk.com/news/newsid=933.php> ..... <www.esf.edu/cellulose>
Our project will create a showcase for leading edge technologies that we will help deploy globally. With the Southern Oregon University, in Ashland, we will be able to offer internships to the students who want to help us build a sustainable 'Green' future for all nations, and people, to enjoy. <www.sou.edu>
Oregon Institute of Technology <www.oit.edu> in nearby Klamath Falls, OR, will give students the opportunity to work with our crew of inventive, creative developers of advanced clean technologies and cellulose-based materials for fabrication and construction. Oregon State University, in Corvallis, has a
topnotch Robotics and Ai research group of faculty, and PhD grad students, in their College of Engineering, now working with <www.agilerobotics.com> and <www.mlabrobotics.com, another pool
of talent to collaborate with in R&D of exotic tech for the near future.
