We are thankful to announce our recent purchase of rural land to continue the journey New Medina Village began nearly two years ago. We’ve fully assumed the LaunchGood commitments of New Medina Village and expect to fulfill them once fully-settled, inshaallah.
We will not continue the land lease model of New Medina Village. Instead, a gift economics model where long-term land use is granted freely, not rented, leased, or sold is being developed. We believe this change more accurately reflects our values and places relationships of trust over the ability to “buy in.”
This year we’re planning one field trip to the land perhaps in November. While there we plan to take some drone footage to share with you. Our next field trip is not planned until late spring 2018, which is when we expect to begin settling on the land.
