Hello Everyone-

We are in the early stages planning to sell our home south of the cities suburb of Burnsville.

One of us where offered a great job and are considering moving to take on this opportunity.

However, our dilemma in putting our home up for sale is the effort we've put in over the past two years in building up the soil and landscape.

We are a young couple living by the ethics of permaculture: earth care, people care, and fair share.

The home is a spacious split level 1960's sitting on near 3/4 of an acre. It has two fire places, attached two car garage with storage, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large deck, and nice outdoor living area that can be used to BBQ or as hobby room. Also built a real nice tree house for the kids. We have mature maple, black walnut, pine, young apple crisp and crab apple trees. We have blue berries, black berries, raspberries, goji berries, sun chokes and a few more. We have a beautiful rain / pollinator garden which we received funding by the city. A butterfly garden (please enjoy the video) and other areas with native plants frequently visited by beautiful humming birds. In addition, we started two beautiful ponds that help harvest rain water and create micro climates for our plants. And a great early hulgelkultur bed.

We love everything about our home, but been told by a real estate agent that we must cover and put grass over our ponds and plants.

We hope to find someone that is looking for a beautiful spacious home who loves nature and loves fresh, delicious, and nutritious food grown in their back yard.

Again, we are in the early stages but are willing to consider showing our home to the right person.

If you are interested, please reply here and let us know whatever questions you may have.

Have a great day, and please enjoy some before and current pictures.

Our beautiful butterfly garden late last summer:

Very nice! I live in South Minneapolis and hoping to move back toward the Rochester area where we grew up! I hope you find some like minded people to take over and keep your vision alive!

Look for another listing agent. Our buyer's agent has quite a few listings that feature permaculture attributes as key selling points. There are agents out there that are ahead of the rest of the conventional crowd. And when you find one...don't be afraid to let the other agent know why you are letting them go.
