Oogst Community 100 is a self-sufficient farm for 100 people. The residents are all farmers. In the central greenhouse, all necessary crops are grown, the surrounding fields are for livestock. The central windmill provides all the necessary energy, there is a water-well under the windmill. But clean water is mainly collected condensed water from the greenhouse.
The technology involved is the same as in the Greenhouse Village and Oogst 1, only here it is hidden. There are studies that show that communities of between 100 and 150 people are the most optimal and harmonious. Therefore, the concept never grows beyond 100 people but it can be multiplied to form a society without shopping centres, banks, roads, cars or airplanes. An irrigation system makes navigation possible (electric of course).
Every community needs a space to gather, the construction halfway up the windmill has a cross (church like) floor-plan, this is where meals are served and marriages organized between communities, but be careful, never more than 100 people can join in.
