About John

I am a NATIVE AMERICAN-TREEHUGGER and AVID SUPPORTER of THE ARTS. An Arborist/Tree Doctor+Climber as a career. For 38 years, my business, ARBORIST EXTRAOARDINAIRE J.BOLENDER & Co., has been PRESERVING and CARING FOR TREES. I also have a business called ARBORICULTURAL ARCHITECTURE TREEHOUSE Co. I design and build treehouses with 90% SALVAGED (RE-CLAIMED) MATERIALS. I live in a home built of repurposed materials as well. My passion now is to do all I can to save Our Mother Earth. I have an opportunity to buy 55 acres on the Santa Fe River in north FL. I need to raise $290K to purchase and save it from a developer/corporate farm! I was offered this land because the owner knows I will preserve it for nature. My plan is to create a 0-carbon emission environment, build 4 handicap accessible TREEHOUSES for rent, as well as provide canoe rentals for a nature retreat. One treehouse will always remain Free for the poor, disabled, underprivileged children inner city kids etc. It can also be used as a cultural center for Native Americans to meet and create videos and art, or perform ceremonies, etc. [These TREEHOUSES FOR BAMBI will be open to all, regardless of ethnicity or religious belief or preference] One project is to document all of this. There is a need for artists of all types to have a place and resources with little money along the philosophy of "SHAREVIVAL" { Live to Share, Share to Live} from Dallas Bohrer of "The Blueberry Patch in Gulfport, FL. Literally hundreds of artists were enabled to create and grow since 7/7/77. I plan to create this environment there as well. A small organic garden and the other 3 TREEHOUSES with canoes will provide income for sustenance. I am not experienced in creating, electronically. I need to CREATE A GO-FUND-Me account to raise $290K in funds to make this happen. I would be grateful for ANY HELP in creating a successful Go Fund-Me acct. I have some funds and some good videos to start with. I have never done anything like this. I just feel our EARTHMOTHER and The UNIVERSE guiding me, and I Believe It Will Provide a Way for YOU AND I to create this and SAVE+GIVE+LEAVE A HOME. At least SAVE 1 piece of RIVER and ANCIENT LIVE OAK FOREST for our CHILDREN’S FUTURE, as well as for the CRITTERS, TREES, and HONEYBEES!!!! I believe in KINDNESS, HONESTY, DECENCY, PEACE & LOVE. WE ARE ALL RELATED and so we are BLESSED To BE Part of this MAGNIFICENT WORLD!!!! SENDING PEACE AND LOVE. JOHNNY B
