We are a family with children seeking an agricultural/permaculture/smallholding type of Jewish community.

We decided long ago that the 9 to 5, work-a-day, suburban world is not the way we want to live. We want to raise our children (and ourselves!) on the land. We have looked into many communities, but have not yet found a fit. We have realized that we need to be seeking a community with a shared spiritual path. We plan to build our own home, have the family dairy cow, grow our food. We would like to share this lifestyle with others.

We've made up a list of skills and abilities that we possess and want to be able to use to the benefit of a community...

stone masonry
stone carving
wood carving
growing and using herbs
making medicinal tinctures
growing fruits, vegetables, etc.
tending livestock
teaching children

We have an avid love of learning, especially old trades. Both of us constantly study, whether it's philosophy, spirituality, history, art, geography, sustainable living (gardening, building, power, etc.), almost anything we can get our hands on.
Our homesteading/ sustainable living hero is John Seymour.

We will go anywhere in the country for the right fit.

We are a Jewish couple just beginning to look into ecovillages -- would not be able to move for a year or so. I have PhD in Jewish Studies, am an artist, and am very
experienced in teaching, cooking and baking for specialized diets (vegan, gluten free, macrobiotic), and in the use of food as medicine, aromatherapy, Reiki etc. My husband has studied for the counseling profession, is very knowledgable about
Judaism as well. We both speak Hebrew pretty well. We had a dream of running a kosher vegan gluten free place using local produce. We love the idea of living off the land and although minimally experienced, would be interested in helping out with farming. We would like to have children eventually. We are very interested in moving to Colorado. You can reach us at
