I'm relocating from Asheville, NC and seek to find a comfortable landing spot somewhere in the NW. Portland is a natural 1st choice as I used to live there, but Seattle/Olympia area would be nice options as well. I hope to find a roommate/room for rent situation for the short term, and possibly longer if it is a good fit. I'm 46, single, omnivore, and eat 99% organic. Any opportunities to grow food would be a plus, but a peaceful environment is the most important thing. I would like to help out on any projects around the property, especially if they relate to homestead skill-building or offer similar hands-on learning opportunities. I also hope to connect with other like-minded permies and to get involved with local events planning and help organize educational opportunities for the community.
If you have a suitable living space that you think could work, please let me know. I expect to be arriving and looking around by July 1st or thereabouts.
