PODnet is gaining traction worldwide and we are happy to announce that the first production of AgriPOD(A-POD) will be delivered to Iceland in the new year. The goal is to setup the building kit in the summer of 2016. Now we are exploring lands in the capital area for the first AgriPOD that will both be a showcase and active research and development platform. We predict that many AgriPOD´s will follow, therefore we are open for suggestions and discussions with land owners that are interested in getting AgriPOD´s setup on their land. We are open for discussion of various ways to collaborate on building, and also on renting and investing in lands for local food production.
The PODnet technical and manufacturing team is coming together and we are making great progress in establishing supply chain to provide high quality eco-building products at a very low cost. This we do both to generate profit to share and build the PODnet infrastructure, as well as to provide worldwide solution for humanitarian work that supports global sustainability and human/natural caused crisis.
We are working together in a open source manners so that we will soon be able to provide modular AgriPOD building kits that our goal is to sell for around $150.000. Finders fee for sales we estimate to be around $10.000 for each sold building kit. You can contact us if you want to invest in AgriPOD or know someone that wants to buy AgriPOD building kit.
Richard Nelson has been traveling to participate in various projects and support PODpioneers all over the globe. In his last visit to Iceland he came right away from Norway where he is working with Rita Westvik. Rita is leading quite interesting project that is called Urban Feed, and the first large scale building is to be built at the famous Prison Island where convicts get the change to rehabilitate in comfortable environment where they learn and grow food to become self reliant and serve the community. We look forward to presenting this project that can certainly be replicated in Iceland.
Soon we are aiming to offer you to take a virtual reality tour to experience how it is to be inside closed 600 square meter AgriPOD ecosystem.
In the visit to Iceland Richard had a good and productive time with Icelandic PODpioneers and PODworks Iceland National hub founder and PODnet co-founder Ríkarður Leó Guðmundsson. Good meetings where held with good people that are influential and interested in supporting and working with PODnet. We are open for collaboration with investors that want to buy AgriPODs, with people, groups and families that want to operate AgriPODs to grow fresh local food and those who want to buy and subscribe to local food and secure their food supply and support their local economy.
We hope to be ready soon to formally establish the PODworksGlobal Collaborative Organization that will be registered in Reykjavik, Iceland. Part of the main roles of the organization is to invest in infrastructure by funding projects worldwide and operate digital social services for PODpioneers, the PODworks enterprises and all the PODentrepreneurs that want access to low priced high quality food.
We encourage all those who are interested in educating themselves about our solutions to become part of a growing movement of local food providers. Become part of a movement that provides food security for you, your family, friends and community. You can invest in our solutions and we will make sure that you will be among those who get AgriPOD´s from our first production runs and fresh food from the first AgriPOD´s that will be operated.
First production runs are going through in Canada and the US. Part of our future vision is to make Iceland the global leader of SolaRoof product manufacturing and exporting eco-building solutions and installation systems. Therefore we are soon ready to begin discussions to explore collaborative opportunities with Icelandic public and private partners.
2016 is the year when we will become more visible and active in the community to inspire social collaboration in order to make local food real and accessible commodity for those who want to become sustainable.
