We Sell Gifts That Support Nature Conservation

Question: What Does Plot Ownership Mean?

This is one question that we get asked a lot and I want to answer it here in detail.

What does “Land Ownership, Personal Rights & Custodianship” on these tiny plots – inside the Wild Flower Garden – on Na-Koi-Ja-Ma Island – really mean?

Look at it from our world – to raise funds for conservation, we basically sell gift packages – and those gift packages include personal rights and custodianship on a tiny parcel of land inside the Wild Flower Garden.

This means that when we talk about “tiny plots or land ownership” on Na-Koi-Ja-Ma Island, we basically say that we will give you – or transfer to you – personal rights to your plot – and we give you custodianship of your plot.

When you have custodianship of a parcel of land – you basically will have some say on the types of plants that we want to plant on your plot, within the rules of the land obviously. So we are basically populating your plot with plants on your behalf – and if you want to get involved it will be great.

I hope in make sense… I will get back to this a little later.

The fact is: the South African property act does not allow for the registration of ownership of tiny plots at the deeds offices across the country, however – it does allow us to sell personal rights and custodianship of land we own, to individuals, companies or trusts.

The control ownership – we have a Tiny Plot: Land Parcel Register Book, it’s a little bit like a mini “deeds office register”. It kept with our accountants and lawyers to insure accuracy and gives a little credibility to the process.

What we do is we notarize these tiny plot – each with it own unique number – and then match each plot with the name of its new owner in the register.

The registrations of all the tiny plots are thus notarized in our company’s own records and it also get registered on our online platform, were our clients – who are plot owners – have 24/7 access too.

When registration is done – plot owners receive a digital and printable copy of the signed and notarized certificate – which confirms the personal rights and custodianship of each persons plot on the island.

But here is something important:

As you can imagine, people circumstance changes, and ownership – or rather, personal rights and custodianship on plots change too – they can’t be in one persons name indefinitely – we don’t live a 1000 years right? There has to be an end date – or at least a re-view date.

To make this a fair and win-win offer for all – plot ownership- or personal rights – or custodianship – whatever you want to call it – automatically last for a minimum period of 4 years, 4 months, 4 weeks and 4 days – and can then be extended.

If plot owners thus wish to extend their ownership on a plot of land for a longer period – during or before it lapses – they are welcome to do so. Only a small renewal fee – to pay for the re-registration – is payable.

I know – so where does the 4-4-4-4-time period come from?

As you may remember from the Na-Koi-Ja-Ma story, it answers the question – “how long it would take to travel to the nearest star system – Alpha Century – from earth – or rather from Na-Koi-Ja-Ma island?

The answer to this question is: Exactly 4 years, 4 months, 4 weeks and 4 days.
