  • Beschreibung


    Welcome ! I am a midwife, social justice activist & a humanist with an active interesting lifestyle. I’ve done work on the US / Mexico border with immigrants and disaster relief in Puerto Rico. Lived off maInland USA extensively.
    My land is shared with another small home and mini house. This summer our normally active co housing community is quiet due to Covid-19 restricting international and short term travelers. Most of our local cultural events are cancelled or dialed back however lots of great make swimming, hiking & bikingLGBTQ &
    POC welcoming home .
    I am extending an invitation to persons who can paint, use electric sander, plaster, spackle before painting ,prune trees, organizing basement etc. Also, help with winter wood supply. Offering cohousing and cultural immersion in our bohemian lifestyle.
    We’re located in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts- country but not rural. We are on a well traveled road in The Village of LenoxDale.
    The Berkshires are rich in alternative lifestyles , healing centers , arts, music, hiking , skiing & activism. Massachusetts is medical and recreational cannabis state. Located about 2.5 hours to NYC and Boston. 1 hour to Albany NY. 1.15 hour to Hartford Connecticut.

    My home is my temple, I maintain a relaxed respectful vibe . Co-housers maintain a harmonious cooperative relationship with one another with deep respect for each other’s personal space. My home is filled with tasteful artwork, comfortable beds , furnishings, home cooked food and interesting people coming and going. Woodstove but gas heat too, large windows, considering it’s a nearly 100 year old house!
    I am a community builder and networker and can help you connect locally for a rich experience. No hard partying or indoor smoking .

    I have an acre of land and am needing help with firewood, gardens,property management , pruning trees,shrubs. If weather bad indoor jobs like painting porch, organizing basement , etc. before high winter sets in.
    I seek those who have been mindful with CV-19 precautions and have a “can do” kinda of attitude with willingness to help and interact , not seeking any highly complex work projects.

    Someone who has experience safely running chain saw & splitting wood is plus.

    Workaway guest will have private room w shared bathroom.

    Access to common rooms in house and outdoor deck. I will provide ( or we will cook together) at least one solid meal a day and breaky. Mostly plant based protein , eggs, limited cheese and meat. Rule of thumb is those that don’t cook help with dishes.
    I invite a Workawayer who has developed their ability to cohouse harmoniously , likes to share meals and activities but who also has stability in self and autonomy.

    Possible access to occasional use of car & rides, bike. Accompany me on lake swims & some cultural events.
