These properties are so awesome that I'd really like to see some permaculture folks move in. Mick and Vicki are moving to Eastern Wa, and they've done some really cool things to the places. Both are outside Carbonado on the road that leads to Mt. Rainier National Park.
They are willing to do Owner-Contract. Or sell parts of the property or lease part. Or even just have rad caretaker (though I wouldn't want Mick to be my landlord EVER, though I love the guy). We had Sepp Holzerworkshop up here and Sepp loved it. Really quite stunning properties, very rural, off the grid, views of the mountains, magical spring water, deep forest nearby.
Let's keep these properties in the permaculture family if at all possible!
