14x14 foot A-frame with lots of custom features. Nestled between two appletrees, with a little pond and water feature right in front. Surrounded by organic garden beds, fruit trees, lots of berries and herbs, greenhouse, bees, mushrooms, & chickens. Your own little kitchen and bathroom, but access to the main house including washer/dryer, off street parking, library, outdoor refrigerator for extra garden veggies, freezers and pantry for food storage. A separate living space with privacy and quiet, but advantages of community household. There are two adults in the main house ages 44 and 57, and two cats, usually there is an an intern living in a trailer on the property for a three month school term. We focus on permaculture, specialize in growing herbs, and have a home business making and selling herbal products, with a commercial kitchen on site. Twice a week we have 3-5 interns learning and working on the property in the gardens and learning to make herbal medicine and organic body care products. We also do monthly workshops on herbs and holistic health that are open to the public. We have future plans for some cool green building projects, like a cobpizza oven and an outdoor kitchen.
We want to find someone who shares our interests in permaculture, food self reliance and sustainable living, who has time to help with food preservation activities like canning, fermenting, and dehydrating. Someone who is positive with good communication skills and not a lot of drama or conflict in their lives. We share some meals, are flexitarians who eat mostly healthy local food, lots from garden, butcher an occasional chicken. We like being around folks not too dogmatic about their food choices.
Rent is 475/mo, little more in the winter, includes Internet, and all utilities. Deposit is 475.00
Would consider a partial work trade for someone with skills we can use.
We are looking for someone who is going to be a really good fit who wants to stay long term, at the very least the growing season. Move in April 1. Here is the Craiglist ad for pictures and contact there, not here.
