A Family Homestead is a way for humans to live in harmony with each other and their natural environment. It is an ancient way of life that is being revived for its wisdom and sustainability. Because of this, a Family Homestead is multidimensional and pertains to many areas of our culture, politics, relationships and lifestyle.
A family homestead is one hectare of land that is not to be bought or sold. The people must be given allocation of the land by popular agreement (“government”) of the people. It is a global movement which involves land rights to create truly sustainable, equitable and peaceful societal changes. A Family Homestead is also a dimension of love on Earth. It is a place for people to live without the stress of debt, homelessness, economic insecurity and instability. It is a people for families to live permanently in a healthy, natural way.
In this physical and emotional landscape, love can grow and remain with greater ease. Some call a Family Homestead – родовое поместье, családi birtok, Familienlandsitz or many other names. Whatever you call it, each and every person must have a homeland on Earth. A place to live in greater connection with oneself, friends and family, and the living world.
On a Family Homestead there is no taxation on primary produce grown with the land. This is a way to encourage sustainable entrepreneurship and local food security. It is a way to strengthen natural gardening and living, fostering healthy diets and healthy people, as well as facilitating ecological restoration.
Family Homesteads are a way to live with zero pollution whilst giving greater freedom in time for creative and meaningful pursuits. Restoring ancient rites capable of preserving love in our families is a core element of a Family Homestead.
Each homestead is surrounded by at least 3m laneways maintained by the resident. The whole landscape is permeable and can be walked through freely, there are no fences only living green fences of trees and plants. A Family homestead settlement is typically one with 200 or more homesteads.
Meadow and forest between each settlement. Rivers, springs and water bodies are held in common.
Relations with animals are as friends and helpers. They are treated with respect and dignity.
Each steward of a Family Homestead has the freedom to create a space that is reflective of their own needs, in harmony with the environment.
It is recommended within the culture to have around 50% of the land planted with woods and a food forest, to create a healthy and balance climate and water cycle.
Where are all the Family Homesteads?
There are roughly estimated 500 settlements and some 30,000 people living in family homesteads. Most are in the Russian Federation, former Soviet Union and eastern Europe, with only isolated examples outside this region. They are united by their readership of Anastasia, the first volume of the “Ringing Cedars of Russia” series by Russian entrepreneur, Vladimir Megre. The most complete directory of family homestead settlements is hosted in Russia in the city of Vladimir, Vladimirskaya Oblast, administered by Maya Ladilova, who describes the books thus:
“The main idea of books, the perfection of our living environment through the creation of family homesteads, is set out in an exciting artistic form. The main heroine of books, a hermit of the Siberian taiga, Anastasia, shows the significance of this idea through philosophical parables about God, and the destiny of humanity. The leading universities of the world became interested in the ideas of books, and their unusual, effective presentation.” (read more: https://www.ringingcedars.org.au/family-homesteads-a-new-perspective-in-the-development-of-russia-and-the-world/)
At the Moscow State University Lomonosov, during the conference “Role and conditions of the development of Family Homesteads for the socio-economic transformation of Russia”, Professor and Head of Laboratory of the Faculty of Economics Andrey Kolganov presented the paper “Family homesteads and settlements as a promising socio-economic form”, in which he recommended the following:
1. Fund to financially support settlers of family homesteads
2. Technical (practical) support to train settlers in permaculture, natural building, business planning and other aspects of living on land
3. Economic and legal advice
“Nikolay Kalmykov, director of the Expert-Analytical Center of the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of the Russian Federation, noted: ‘ … The very concept of “Family homestead” is very important, helping to strengthen inter-generational connection, nurture and support love for one’s native land.’ “
“Solving the issue of legislative support for the initiative to create family homesteads can give this movement a much broader scope. … But even the first steps in this direction, taken in extremely cramped conditions, and based solely on the initiative from below, already speak in its favour. “
Evgeniy Savchenko, Governor of the State of Belgorod, said at the Fourth International “Ringing Cedars” Festival,
“Today we are witnessing a great beginning! The great beginning of the building of a new space, a new civilization, where there are no rich and no poor. Where there’s more love! We’ve walked around here, and we’ve seen for ourselves how many shining people there are here. And a deep bow to you, Vladimir Nikolaevich, the person who has altered our consciousness and continues to alter it. You deserve to be remembered for all time.” (read more https://vmegre.com/en/events/22331/)
