is to share our Living Example of a Thriving Sustainable Community!
When others see it, they KNOW that it is possible!
The Garden of Eden in Arlington, Texas, is the first of what we hope will be a tidal wave of sustainable eco-villages to spring up all around the world, providing sustainable solutions for food production, housing, commerce, and community to many joyful and grateful people.
Here, we are creating an evolving model for sustainable, responsible, enjoyable living that encompasses all the necessities of life - and many of the niceties too!
Based on this model, The Garden of Eden can be recreated and adapted for the many different environments and cultures that exist all around the world.
The widespread and global rise of sustainable eco-villages has the potential to usher in an entirely new paradigm of living, where humans are THRIVING in harmony with nature and one another.
Yet this reality shall exist only when we as INDIVIDUALS, en masse, are ready and willing to take full responsibility for aligning with such a reality at the depths of our very being.
That means truly loving ourselves, truly loving our planet, and truly loving one another.
From that place of true love, all decisions made will be made for the benefit of all.

Because sustainability is SUPER important to us, we make it a point to use the most sustainable solution available for any given necessity, AND to simply let go of wasteful habits that are truly not necessary for maintaining well being. It is simply a matter of CHOICE.
Giving Back to the Earth
We have all heard of the carbon footprint- a metric of how much carbon is added to the atmosphere as a result of a person's consumption.
We are proud to declare that the Garden of Eden has a Negative Carbon Footprint and an overall Positive Environmental Impact!
Quinn has traveled the world visited every continent but Antarctica, and seen a myriad of lifestyles and environments along the way.
Yet even the indigenous people living on the land in their traditional ways are not having as much of a positive impact on the environment as is the Garden of Eden.
People living on the land may "break even" with the land, giving back everything they take, in a way that can be processed and recycled by the ecosystem.
Yet because the GoE is Removing Waste, and utilizing trash to produce usable resources that support life, our environmental impact is actually better than zero.
Unlike almost all organizations or organisms that we have ever heard of, The GoE has the net effect of actually ADDING LIFE SUPPORT to the Earth's system as a whole.
For example, each year, the Garden of Eden produces approximately 40,000 meals for FREE.
These meals feed our own inhabitants who are daily applying their life and energy to sustainable living.
These meals are also shared with those who attend GoE Events, the vast majority of which between 2011 and 2015 included free feasts.
And these meals are also given to homeless and hungry people within our own local community and further expansive city outreach a few times a year.
