We are just completing a tiny house in our permaculture urban homestead with a focus on medicinal herbs. It is a sweet 14x14 A-frame, with lots of unique and cool features. Sleeping loft and a built in futon, desk, tile throughout, redwood counters, rain shower, composting toilet, on demand hot water. Right outside is a little pond and water feature, and surrounded by gardens, herbs, mushrooms, berries and fruit trees. The yard also has a greenhouse, outdoor shower, deck, hot tub, chickens, & bees. You would have access to the main house, bigger kitchen and freezers, washer/dryer, library. Located in a great north Eugene neighborhood a few miles from downtown, right on the bike path and bus line. We frequently shared meals from bounty from the garden. We are flexitarians, occasionally butcher and eat one of our chickens. Currently there are three older adults living here, but we have an intern program and there are young people here learning permaculture and herbal medicine a couple days a week. We have a home business selling herbal products and a commercial kitchen on site. We have wwoofers/interns who stay for three months in a 27 foot trailer on the side of the house, so there is a interesting mix of folks coming and going. Seeking a stable person for long term with extensive experience in permaculture and time to devote to the garden. Someone whose passion is gardening, food self-reliance, and sustainable lifestyles. Future projects include a cob pizza oven, a shop, and a treehouse. We are looking for someone who can pay rent which includes includes utilities, internet. It is possible to do a partial work trade, but we are looking for someone who has resources to be self sufficient. Our ideal person has a permaculture design certificate and/or master gardener, a good communicator, positive, community minded, has their act together. Passionate and experienced in permaculture, we want to find someone with enough experience to teach and work with interns. No tobacco smokers (even outside) or heavy drinkers, must pass a criminal background check. No dogs, but a cat would be ok, there are two in the house. The house is a little too small for children, and would not work for someone with a lot of stuff.

The house will be finished the beginning of February and we are starting to take applications now.

Daphne .... your A-frame rental house sounds very appealing. How much is the monthly rent and is there a separate meter for utilities?
My background is organic gardening, iridology, herbal medicine, finically independent and non-smoker (of course). I've used about 60 different herbs in my iridology practice.
Thanks

The rents in Eugene are pretty high, so we are planning on renting for slightly less than the average market slightly higher in the winter 425-475, there is not a separate meter and the rent includes utilities and internet.
 
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
