My name is Jeff. My wife, 2 small kids, and sister-in-law are in the process of starting a sort of mini eco community. We will have housing opportunities available beginning around September 2021-April 2022. Our property is 13.5 acres about 25 miles West of Fort Worth, Texas. We will have available a 1,000 square foot 2/bed 1/bath home for rent. Also (2) 2 bedroom/1bathroom 650 sq ft homes. We also have a full service 50amp RV pad. Amenities we are currently working on will include a gym, art studio, library, music studio, and craft room. We also have A large insulated shop that has HVAC and a 3/4 bathroom that will be a community gathering area. The property has a large 1+acre pond, windmills, solar power, a few tractors, multiple wells and is full of wildlife.
Our guiding principles will be based on community, liberty, and permaculture.
We are non-denominational, peaceful, sometimes drink & smoke, are responsible, eat meat, work hard, and play hard. We respect any differences you may have, but you must be good with how we choose to live. Respectful conversations on ANY topic are however always welcome.
All ages are welcome, and diversity in age offers great value, however we do have a 6 and 2 year old, so having a few more children around would be an extra benefit, but is not required.
Although this will be setup more like a typical rental agreement at first, Options for long-term ownership for the right individual/family may be possible.
This opportunity will not include required involvement, however we are willing to open up most of the property to grow food, and raise animal which would require collaboration. We really would like to work together with a few like minded people to share in these designs, responsibilities, and mutually benefit from the results. We are new to a lot of the practices involved in permaculture, and are still in the observational and planning stage right now. During the next 12 months we are planning on digging swells, improving access, planting trees, and gardens and getting a few different species of animals.
Rental terms are TBD.
Skills that may be helpful include:
Teaching (for homeschooling)
Permaculture design Plants/herbs/natural medicines
to name a few
