FRIENDS-

ANYone interested in being part of the discussion, possibly joining us in the formation of a HOMESTEAD COOPERATIVE living in northern NM or CO.

PLANS are to be ready to move in summer 2018
STRUCTURE to be designed much like co-housing. Each family will own their own parcel and build on it their own home. will be lots of community property

on COMMUNITY PROPERTY:  extensive food permaculature gardens, livestock and play land!
for sharing in the work, fun and reaping.
aiming for as much sustainable energy and lifestyle as possible. including passive solar, solar power and likely rain catchment/grey water useage...

AT THE MOMENT: we are two families. one, a single man and the other a single woman with twin toddlers. we are very interested in having other families with children to play/work together.

                        we are currently looking at properties in the range of 12-50 acres. anticipating each family lot to be bet 2-5 acres.

SEEKING : families who want to share communal space joyfully, and want to own their own parcel and build their own place.
we might be open to mobile home living in the beginning and soon we will have small outbuildings for the temporary live-work trade persons.

ARE YOU INTERESTED at all? if so, right now there is no formal application process as we have not written our formal description and invitation. Rather, at this stage, we are inviting anyone whose interest is piqued - to write and email and have a little dialogue and see if it grows from there.

once we do have the land and a clearer description of the structure of this co-housing , we will post again too.

HOPE to hear from you!
happy days - -

Hello


We are actually in the process of doing the exact same thing in the same area plus NV, accept on a much larger scale and sooner time frame. We are looking at 4-5 families and 80-150 acres. I would love to chat to see if our group could mesh and maybe coexist.

Hi,
I am in the same boat and moving relatively quickly as well. I always favor collaboration. Is there a good way to chat via phone/email?

I am a father of a wonderful 7yr old. It's just us two, has been so since she was a month old. We moved from Albuquerque to the South Valley, to find a more rural setting, 3 yrs ago. I already trade maintenance work and operating the water system on a 17 acre campus, for room and board, and work as a multi trade handyman and gardener on the side for cash, but we dont have the option to raise livestock and that is something I want to do . I have few financial assets, but lots of skill and know how. We are looking for community, self sustainabity, and permanence. If you think we may fit in, I would love to chat.
