Vision
A farm and forestry collective designed to maintain food, water, and resource security for long term health of its members and our region. We aim to use mostly perennial agriculture and silviculture to establish an economically viable and low maintenance permaculture system. We seek to host a tight group of smart members to support and run the collective farm.

We are seeking to add new members to our collective. We are just establishing all of our invisible structures now and its a great time to get in early. we have some basics in so far in terms of infrastructure and people. We have great forested slope land with multiple streams. we aim to do lots of perennial ag, with lots of overstory nuts and chestnuts. We are seeking members like ourselves, that is extremely: drive, self motivated, skilled, passionate, financially abundant, and committed. We are seeking people specifically with plumbing, carpentry, milling, and handyman skills. We currently have people very advanced in these fields: livestock, horticulture, design, chef, business. We ask that all new candidates have their own housing that they would enter with.

We are seeking a couple, and ideally one with a child or two to move in this spring. We want them to help run this property and its projects. Thus we are asking for $250 of rent a month and 10 hours of work trade per month. Income sharing opportunities exist. Large garden and orchard that is shared for community use. lots of details to discuss. rv or tiny home needed to move in. fully utilities are ready.

there are a very large number of applicants; there are many people moving here and viying for opportunities. thus if you want to inquire you must submit a background/resume/statement of interest of some form to be considered. this is a very serious and consciously crafted position. please only apply if you are healthy, practiced in this lifestyle, and are ready to commit to a great community and project.

Steve, Where is this opportunity? If you already have so many applicants, why advertise for more? Just curious...

He has another thread on his community here: https://permies.com/t/94465/seeking-renters-community-members. It looks likely they are located on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. The Olympic Peninsula is east of Seattle, and accessed by ferry or a rather long drive if driving from Seattle.

OP started a thread here as well: https://permies.com/t/75290/Seeking-members-renters-homesteaders#624796

Steve, can you upload some pictures? What type of information do you need in an application/proposal? What do you mean by "financially abundant"?

It may be hard for some to make a decision or apply to join a community without more specific information.

i agree, i am not asking anyone to join a community without full disclosure. i am simply trying to start an interest and connection. i am happy to talk on the phone with any one who  interested. having lived and worked in many communities i know it takes lots of time and connection to get to a point of partnering as a community. i am interested in both renters and long term community members. there are lots of plans and potential here. the location, the stream, the land is amazing. ultimately you;ll have to visit to understand.

please call

You are HERE! The other map is obviously wrong. Better confirm with this tiny ad:
