I posted this a few months back, now offering a move-in bonus ... quick update.

House for rent, the beginnings of an eco-house, at 1102 Cherokee Court, Martinsville VA.  You'll live in the middle of what is becoming a permaculture demonstration center.  Behind you will be a victory garden and small nursery.

Now I'm offering a $150 move-in bonus which I'd rather give to a Permies member.  If you are into blogging your permaculture experience, then I'd even extend the wi-fi for free (2mb/2mb) -- that will save you about $99/month.

In this area there are also 36,000 job openings paying $50k or more.  The city is upgrading its 1GB service to accommodate the high-tech and cybersecurity positions coming on-line.  Other positions are trade and nursing related.

There is also volunteer land management opportunities and a nature preserve in the works.  You'll be living right up against green space (your zone 5) on a quiet court in a rural community.

The lake and nearby country club are considering permaculture style management options.  You'll be close to the action if you desire.  If not, you'll benefit from the lifestyle available in this up-coming community.

Write if you have questions.


permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier. Read tiny ad:
