The Living Orchard Corporation was founded by Bill Macquis in November of 2016. The company was founded to serve as a profit for non-profit business and as business model that other could replicate and as such this model incorporates many new and innovative approaches to business. The Living Orchard Corporation is legally registered corporation and functions just like any other profit driven business, with one major exception; 50% of the company’s revenues are directly invested into supporting internally managed and operated humanitarian initiatives and projects. The company employs an non-authoritarian community based business management ideology that follows an set of socially responsible and accountable business polices, practices and procedures. As one friend of Bill’s pointed out, this business model is actually is a comprehensive model of how to build a self sustainable socially responsible and accountable economic system.
The company’s core structure: R&D, Distribution, Operations and Production consists of 4 autonomously managed and operated open communities.

A Very Special Thank You and Tribute to John Lennon (1940-1980)…
Your song “Imagine” has always had a profound impact on me ever since I first heard it playing on the radio back in the 70’s. At that time I was a 10 year old boy laying in a hospital bed figuring out how to overcome serious brain trauma and physical challenges I sustained in a sporting accident. This was further complicated by that fact that at the time of the accident, I was just begining to learn how to overcome a very challenging mental disorder that I was born with. The somg’s inspirational message of ‘hope, love, equality, unity and peace for all mankind’ had such a profound effect on me that not only did I succeed in overcoming all those challenges. The songs message has manifested into becoming one the core values, principles and mission that give greater purpose and meaning to everything I do.
Now much older and wiser, I have embarked on the most ambitious projects of my life. The building of “The Living Orchard Corporation” and everything that it was established to do to serve the betterment of humanity. In gratitude for all that your song has enable me to accomplish in life, I have dedicated this project to realizing of one of your greatest “Dreams, Inspirations, Visions and Aspirations” in LIFE…
“Imagine all the people living LIFE in peace. You may say that I am a dreamer but I am not the only one. I hope someday you will join us and the world will be as one…”
I imagined, I believe and this is what I have set out in ‘LIFE’ to accomplish in your honor…
‘To unite people in working together, peacefully transforming the world into one where everyone can live LIFE with Liberty, Independence, Freedom and Equality!’
