ARCA Self-Sufficient Villages

ARCA is a Civilization Building Project

We’re developing a network of residential developments based on sovereignty, coherence and self-sufficiency

A vision for the future

What if there’s a place that supports and amplifies your commitment of becoming the best version of yourself

 

What if all what is happening in the world has created the perfect scenario for you to live in surrounded of amazing like-minded, like-hearted individuals?

 

Enter the ARCA Network.

How ARCA business model supports our vision

Our foundation is a network of residential villages integrated with productive farmland.

ARCA Villages are built to thrive, no matter what the current state of world affairs.

acquire farms and ranches with plenty OF empty space

Civilizations flourish around food and water sources.

Our acquisition strategy aims to purchase already-productive farmland in key locations.

improve their operations WITH BEST practices & CUTTING EDGE TECHNIQUES

We make conventional farms and ranches more productive, profitable, and resilient.

We achieve this by changing the economic dynamics: employees become entrepreneurs, radically enhancing the nature of the interactions with the local communities.

INTEGRATE residential developmentS DESIGNED FOR THE TIMES

Houses, shared amenities, and services are wisely integrated into the landscape to provide a top-of-the-line lifestyle for the residents.

Convivential layers are designed to evolve over time, expanding possibilities for each of the residential developments as well as for the whole network.

Who lives in ARCA?

With a maximum of 150 units available in each Village, ARCA developments are home to dynamic, high-value individuals and families who choose freedom over fear and are committed to being their best selves.

ROOTERS

This segment includes families and retirees that demand larger villas. They are anywhere between 35-75 yo.

They are interested in contributing to the network with their experience, acumen, and vested interest in legacy.

Dynamizers

This group ranges from 25 to 45 years old. They are singles or are in a partnership, looking for condos or co-living spaces.

Interested in shared spaces (like fitness centers, coworking, and cafes,) they bring vibrance to the community.

How ARCA is different from other intentional communities?

Living in an ARCA Village is a transformative experience, with an Evolve Together mindset

📚 Civilization Building Project vs. "let's just live together outside of the grid"

ARCA’s residents share a coherent intention to build the new world that we want to live in. We are go-getters who look after ourselves, each other, and our children’s full potential to develop.

🚜 Productive vs. Consumerist land approach

All civilizations in history flourished around the ability to produce, store and protect food sources. This is in contrast to communities that rely on retreats or an Airbnb rental model.

💫 Freedom-oriented, Conscious Communication based conviviality

All of the members of ARCA know about the impact how we communicate will have on our quality of life. All members of ARCA subscribe to evolving together, taking responsibility, disarming conflict, and framing problems as opportunities.

🛤 “Group of individuals” vs “Community”

We believe in the power of individuality. In ARCA Villages we use Decision Circles, a system that encourages all residents to actively participate in the process of self-governance.

🚀 Fear & Constriction vs. Faith & Expansion Mindset

We’re not running away: we’re too busy creating the best place to live on Earth. Together, we’ll build an abundant, impactful, and sustainable future.

What to expect as a member of ARCA

Each Village will be developed in phases, which will be adding Convivial Layers to improve all aspects of self-sufficiency for supporting human growth.

Residents will have access to the shared facilities and active participation in their Village decision-making process.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Every member goes over a curated and personalized process to ensure that we’ll live amongst people fully committed to being the best version of themselves.​

FOOD PRODUCTION

An Integrated Farming Operation is at the foundation of each Village.

 

By implementing Joel Salatin’s Polyface Farming Methodology we incorporate locals as entrepreneurs, integrating the Village as a source of wealth for the surrounding towns.

SHELTER

As soon as the basic grid of services has been built, we’ll allow residents to move right away by using modular & transportable structures.

 

The process allows a scaffolded transition for villages to accommodate population growth.

WATER MANAGMENT

Villages will always have a source of drinkable water available.

 

The master plan includes water pumps, condensers, filters, tanks, pipes & irrigation systems.

Sewers & Waste Disposal

Each Village’s waste disposal system will be adapted according to the permaculture of their particular environment.

 

Our aim is to obtain the best possible way of repurposing the waste.

CONVIVIAL SPACES

Shared amenities include:

■ Coworking space;
■ Workshop / Maker’s Space;
■ Fitness Center;
■ Dojo;
■ Learning Spaces;
■ First-Aid Room.

WEALTH PRESERVATION

Our financial and legal structure will be supported by blockchain. This facilitates the management of investing, property & voting rights outside of state-sponsored agencies.

 

Also allows investors to obtain liquidity by permanent access to primary and secondary markets.

EDUCATION AND UPSKILLING

To keep improving ourselves and our kids, each Village in the Network will have a dedicated Learning Center where classes and courses will take place.

 

The integrated farm also provides an optional line of knowledge for residents of all ages.

SECURITY & SELF DEFENSE

The best way of avoiding conflict is to prepare for it. That’s why the masterplan includes:

 

Perimeter security, defensive countermeasures, and community integration in the process through our Dojo and bow-and-arrow shooting range.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT

Even though we’ll depend on the existing electrical grid for the first stages of development, our focus will be on implementing alternative sources in time, like Energy Generators, Solar, Wind, and Batteries.

COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT

This person will be at the center of the social dynamics for each Village and their sole focus is to improve the experience of living there.

 

For this, they produce larger social events, small get-togethers, and also peer-to-peer connections between residents.

REGEN/URBANGUIDELINES

Our development philosophy follows Ruban principles and sacred geometry guidelines.

 

Our settlements are meant to be infrastructurally autonomous cells existing within a web of nature, farms, communication, informational and spiritual interconnectivity.

REPRESENTATIVE PARTICIPATION

Each Village makes its own decisions. Our master plan proposes a decentralized Governance system through Decision Circles, and an internal, principle-based Convivential Code.

 

We plan to incorporate DemocracyOS to secure all residents’ participation in the decision-making process.

Every member goes over a curated and personalized process to ensure that we'll live amongst people fully committed to being the best version of themselves.

A day in ARCA

Our first-person vision for the lifestyle we want to create at an ARCA Village

Picture it is June 2028...

You’ve been a resident of ARCA Cuyo Village for the last six months, and you're about to have breakfast with the COO of the ranch which is integrated to the residential complex.

7:15 AM

He tells you some good news:

All the local entrepreneurs that operate on the ranch are going through a permaculture coaching with Joel Salatin himself.

8:20 AM

As you grab a coffee, you strike up a conversation with your neighbor,

one of the original contributors to the Bitcoin blockchain code. He’s making some adjustments to the decision-making system that the Village network uses to organize the totally decentralized process.

9:15 AM

You straddle through the garden

to have your 20 minutes of meditation under the Dome. From where you are you can see the kindergarten group that is in their first approach to the practice.

9:30 AM

It’s time to get some remote work done!

so you head over to the coworking where you have open access to a fast and decentralized connection to the internet.

10:00 AM

You hit the Fitness Center for stretching,

and then head to the cafeteria for lunch with visiting friends: they are about to go through the Admission Process to join the Village. 

12:00 PM

As you step off work...

you pass by the Learning Center, where you see a leading voice in spirituality giving a breathing masterclass. You can't help it, and you join the experience.

7:45 PM

You head over to the weekly get-together

that the local Community Manager organizes in the Village’s Social Hub, to enjoy some live music and drinks.

8:15 PM

There, you learn that new neighbors are joining next week:

a Yoga superstar instructor, and one of the most recognized bow hunters in the world. You’re pleased that both of them have agreed to have monthly open classes in the dojo and the shooting range respectively.

10:00 PM

Just before you head back to your place,

the resident of a neighboring ARCA Village tells you that he has the perfect client for that business idea you’ve been thinking about.

11:15 PM

Then it hits you...

You realize that you've met more coherent, resilient and inspiring people since you arrived, than over your entire life.

These are your people. They get it. They want to learn, improve, and succeed.

Just like you, they have skin in the game of life, and they’re ready to co-create the Civilization of the future... and win.
