  • Description

    Description

    I have over half an acre of land around my home. Some areas have been used for gardens but the effort of keeping up with weeds, soil replenishment composting systems, planting for beauty and consumption is not sustainable, too much redundant work. Someone who can help determine what needs to be done and then do it would fulfill my needs here. I have great visions of easily utilizing all the resources this land provides as well as human resources of all who live here (junk mail, cardboard, food scraps, etc). Being on a well and septic system, the water, etc is already being recycled, providing nutrients to some of the soil. I can easily fit a couple. I do intend, with help, to build an outdoor bedroom which can be set up as a dorm for more than one individual.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sustainability and resource recycling land development methods and implementation. I have done much research and will provide materials and concepts and encourage self-learning and proposal writing for each project. This land is a challenge and is practically raw material for a bran new approach.

    During the fall, good size bedroom with queen bed, furniture, nice space. Share kitchen/bathroom with one other roomer. After fall and dorm room built, then dorm room becomes the space with access to bathroom and kitchenette through external door in main house.

    House in the country at edge of town, and next to highway, but well insulated so few complaints. Gorgeous views.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Ashland is a cultural town and also serves mountain hikers/bikers. Shakespeare Festival is here, community is strong, very connected, lots of spiritual endeavors, alternative medicine, locals dancing. It's a goal of travelers, turning many of them into residents.

    In my home, I am active all the time working these businesses, taking care of the house and my mother and sometimes granddaughter. I stay focused and private as I move through the day. I also have musical gatherings here frequently.

    A person near my side to help turn this property into something so much more useful will be forever remembered.
