....for the right sustainable permaculture-/ farm-/ earth-care setting.

I am interested in long-term future-, community-, security-, freedom- & equity building working partnership
in form of pay by shares + board & lodge, or work-to-own & preserve property &/or business…

I love doing things with my hands...& soul - restoring old furniture…or houses, or building new ones
and all kinds of accompanying vital structures; making (unbelievably healthy, yet; ) - compellingly sensuous soul food*...or wine;
digging in the dirt to enliven the soil, plant trees and hearten the veggies...or to make sheep's or goat's cheese;
creating arts and crafts of all kind, making music, or giving reiki, - or what would you like to have done?

(*give me a tasty example - from raw to rustic or nouvelle cuisine - and I'll make it..
- up to your taste buds, promised.-)

…Besides being a Mom (of three marvelous midgets so far) - alas, no Dad involved; - I am
- a passionate homesteader, gardener & seed saver, care taker (of creation in distress: earth, waters & air,
plants, animals & people, arts, wisdom & spirit…) temporarily displaced in a University environment.
- A Naturopathic Practitioner (- certified "Heilpraktiker", (equivalent to N.M.D.), re-certified in the US to
M.S. Health Sciences (Nutrition & Botanical Medicine) & Master Herbalist (M.H.));
…working to make others feel better, & on my US-Doctorate.

I have been trained in Rural Ecotrophology (similar to Home Economics & Family Studies in the US)
with major in Small Scale (Agro-)Business Management, Nutrition and Hospitality. This dual system apprenticeship
(business school + training on the job) included Dietetics, Innkeeping, Gardening, Life stock management,
but also training in technical aspects of (where possible, self sufficient) Property management, including
Carpentry (Timber Framing, Flooring, Cabinetry) as well as Architectural History and Restoration.

I then studied Business Administration & Sustainable (Agri-)Tourism, (B.A.) as well as Agricultural Science/Oenology
(Viticulture & Wine making) (B.A.) and Int. Business Management & Marketing (M.A.). With that I've been working
for environmentally minded start-ups to dream up sustainably vital solutions for visionary people and our planet..
in order to provide for life while finally studying Naturopathic Medicine in Germany and then re-certifying in the US.
- Life's ways are intricate...

Why all this?? - To follow that Big all-encompassing Dream of helping to heal our planet and supporting life around us,
while keeping ourselves alive, sustainably and self-sufficiently, - in hope to help create a self-supporting enduring village (perma)culture
with a joyful community of like-minded folks. ……So, - nothing special on a permie forum. )

We have no short-term cash to bring to the table, (although medium term capital available),
Yet, - the incontestable ability to work wonders and create invaluable integral riches in the right setting.

So now, we are looking for YOU: - with similar goals and skills to support or complement ours,
- with land, living space and excess existing work or plans in need of help, and dreams to share
- with a need for convergent handy, hands-on support, from a young loving, fit, & openhearted, family
just like us..

Hi John,

We are at the moment in New England,
but open to move anywhere with a somewhat moderate climate/ not too long & harsh winters.

- Not even limited to the USA.
New Zealand or Europe would be just as fine,
for the right fit.

Thank you for asking!


We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
