    We just moved to a little acreage. We are doing cosmetic renovating. Painting, flooring, etc. We have plans to put in solar panels to run our house on our own electricity. We have laying chickens, cat and a dog and may be getting milking goats, evantually. In the summertime we run a small market garden. Spring through fall we are always open to an extra gardening hand/ and help at the farmers markets. We are also open to nanny help for our children with the right person. We eat "real" food, if interested about our diets we usually stay pretty close to recommendations. We like to stay busy(happily busy, not slave-like busy;) and we are always looking to learn new things and always work on self improvement. We are signing up to be work away hosts for the experience and the extra help doesn't hurt:) If you think you would be a good fit and would like to talk more, I hope you send me a message.

    We live in a rural part of Iowa. We are 1/2 hour from the Capitol of IA called Des Moines...so plenty of entertainment. Locally there is a great trails system for biking, running, and cross country skiing in the winter. A lot of little lakes great for fishing/boating.
