We are looking for a new household member starting September in wonderful Eugene, Oregon. Looking for people interested in food self reliance, sustainable living, self sufficiency, permaculture and urban homesteading. Located in Santa Clara, a Eugene suburb, 7 miles and a easy bike ride to downtown Eugene. Big vegetable garden, plans for more extensive growing, chickens, tipi, mature fruit trees and a herb garden. Upcoming building projects include greenhouse, rabbitry, outdoor oven, and open to other ideas. This is a family home with grown children, visiting grandchildren, extended family, friends and tribe. intentional community values, however there is a lot of privacy and personal space. Available bedroom is 10x11, with big windows and lots of light. Current residents include two part time, and two full time, two women, two men, ages 48-61. We are old hippies with that culture and world view. Spirituality on the pagan end of the spectrum. We share some meals but do separate food, we eat meat with a focus on sustainable and local meat, and plan on butchering our own in the future, so this is not a good fit for a strict vegetarian. The home is spacious, peaceful, with numerous amenities including a hot tub. Several home businesses operate here, one a midwifery publishing, the other an herbal product business. Monthly financial contribution is $350.00 a month includes all utilities, wifi, and cable TV. Three hours per week labor contribution towards household, building, and permaculture projects. No tobacco smokers. Prefer mature individuals, consider a couple, sorry no children, occasional visiting children are fine. Must have an established source of income, jobs are hard to find in Eugene. I do not check this board often so email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

There is no judgement of vegetarians, my sweetie who spends a lot of time and meals at the house eats fish, but not red meat or fowl, so we many of our shared meals are vegetarian. What we ideally would like to find is someone who may be open to helping in the butchering of rabbits (when we get them) or the occasional chicken. Also we cook meat regularly in the kitchen, I say it will not be a good fit because that has been an issue in the past when other vegetarians have lived here. I am into the Nourishing Traditions cooking style, and make a lot of meat broths in the winter, we don't have space for separate pans, etc. Ideally a single person or possibly a couple, but the household is not a good set up for a child, other than an occasional visiting child.
