    Ge the chance to help out at the beginning of a big project! I've just moved back to my hometown from a decade in California, bringing with me a passion to transform the monocropped fields of the region with perennial systems, while working to expand the local food web.

    The site will function as an example food forest within a city lot, and of retrofitting old homes for efficiency and away from fossil fuels. The house is an 1870's Victorian in the process to being restored, using traditional green practices such as plastering. The 1/2 acres lot has two mature pear trees, and young chestnuts, apple, blueberries, and pawpaw, with lots of room for more. There is another lot down the street that will be used to grow annual vegetable crops, trees and vibes Future community space in its early days.

    Stay just a few blocks from downtown and the Amtrak station, in Galesburg, a sweet Midwestern town with lots of history, beautiful old homes, trains, and friendly people. And a great natural foods store!

    I live with my partner John and his mellow dog Piper. Reach out with any questions or if you are interested in stopping by.

    Get a glimpse into Midwestern American small town life. Galesburg has a theater, small college, cute shops, and lots of history, esp. Carl Sandburg, Abe Lincoln, and trains. The area has lakes, rivers, and some hiking, and rich soils.

    Learn skills that will prove useful in many aspects of life.

    Current projects include gardening, permaculture design, tree planting, and landscape maintenance. Also opportunities to help with woodworking, cooking, and house repair projects.

    This is a great spot for anyone who wants to learn more about any of these skills, or is already adept at them. Some I am very knowledgeable about, such as tree care. Others I am learning as I go.
