We are in search of people excited about building natural structures with hand tools, living in community, cooking over rocket stoves and enjoying the jungle of rural Kentucky!

We have 62 acres with beautiful waterfalls, caves, multiple limestone-filtered springs that we drink from, creeks and swimming holes for bathing, tons of mushrooms and blackberries....come stay a while! We can share cost of food.

If you want more info, check out our POOSH build project at http://thepoosh.org/buildproject/michael-beck/community-building

It gets into the teens for a week or two usually. We've had some two foot dumps the last several winters. Fun! Jan/Feb are coldest, December and March are beautiful outside working months.

Thnking of visiting?

For people who like to live with four seasons, KY is perfect. The winters aren't too long or severe. It's a nice season that everything is dormant and at rest for a while.

I was thinking of it.  However, if we go some place cold for any time in the winter we'll have to spend some money on straw bales or such to insulate the under side of our bus.

In the area we are in KY, all that is grown on a large scale is straw. No shortage of that here. You could probably find it for close to free.

Dec. is usually 50's and sunny.
