Ear permies team,

This is a great great opportunity for the right person, and kinda meh for most anyone else.

Faux-op (semi-coop, rental, but landlord is a member).  She is blind.  The plus side--you'll learn a lot.  The minus--the whole community should help the blind person in their town, not just the four people who live in the house or the one who happens to be there at that moment.  It can be lopsided.  

3 paywapys, about 5 years old this spring...three blossoms last year.  2 1/2 hazelnut trees.  

Great location for commercial interaction--3 minutes from major subway stop, about 20" to downtown Boston.  Davis Square is gentrifying--you could make money here or work a tech job, if that's your thing.  

I want to find someone who is strongly committed to protecting these trees.  There should be no more roof construction needed anytime soon, the last time the construction workers did a number on two of the food-producing trees...

I wouldn't brag about the permaculture design here, nor the implementation, but it's not terrible.  And the shady back yard can be used for mushroom cultivation, changing more of the forsythia to hazelnut over time is pre-approved, and really there could be chickens or quail.

Comes with free supply of rabbit poop from a neighbor.

Neighborhood brunch, building relationships and potential sustainability focus and co-housing rearrangement retrofit (long-term goal--we've planted seeds by hosting this brunch monthly with egularity and consistency).  

There is lots of lead in the soil.  The front (sunny side) garden bed is not necessarily available, but this might be able to be negotiated.  

For someone looking to transition to rural life this could be ideal.  $710/month with utilities.  

Purple moosage me for more info.  Thanks!

Beauty is in the eye of the tiny ad.
