    Great opportunity, thanks! Will definitely try it out, as any piece of publicity of PR can be worth a lot to a startup like ours.

    We have designed what we believe is the highest specification eco village in the world. All houses are to be to PassivHaus standard, but at £30 000, will cost a tenth of the cost of a PassivHaus and will be self built of local materials. At the heart of the village will be a school. We have the best school in the world on board; a Russian model of school where the children learn in mixed age groups, studying one subject at a time. The school has been acheiving amazing results for the last 24 years; the kids are astonishingly bright and complete the whole school curriculum in 1-3 years. The village will be off grid; all the homes will have no energy bills. Every home will have an electric car. There will be 95% recycling of household waste. More than half of the plots will be of one acre; through Permaculture Design, these plots can be more productive than farmland. The plots will be sold at 25% less than market valuation, negating the need for a deposit. The site will also house Europe’s largest eco business hub. This will create at least 500 new jobs within the first two years. Profits from this development will be re-invested for re-creation in other locations. We have a great piece of land are looking for investors. We expect to have all plots sold within a month.
