The Permaculture Replicator is a gene bank, equipment, and technique pool to facilitate replication and on-demand creation of integrated edible and permacultural landscapes. The beginning of such a program is the collection of a living gene bank, by all means necessary. In particular, Factor e Farm will host a living gene bank as such, and we would like to protote the creation of a large number of such facilities throughout the world to foster food sovereignty via local food systems.
The problem statement is to identify and collect this gene pool at Factor e Farm in as expedient a fashion as possible. The first step is to collect and grow out stocks such that they could themselves serve as propagation material.
Open Business Model
The business model for this is open, and it centers around a pool of donors and investors who thereby gain access to the gene bank, as well as to propagation workshops at no cost. The gene bank should scale such that ample stocks would be available to approximately 100 subscribers, who always return as much propagates stock to the pool as will allow for continuity and improvement of the gene bank.
