  • Description


    We strive to make changes every day to reduce our use of fossil fuels. We believe that our lives are better by working together. We know that we must choose to be more effiecent, more healthy, less stressed and that cooperation is the key to a better life for humanity.

    I have managed a community oriented apartment complex in Albuquerque for 10 years. We have taught and hosted super Adobe workshops, Brewster workshops, solar and led workshops as well as permaculture workshops.

    We live on a 2 acre property behind a winery in the north valey in los Ranchos De Albuquerque. There is a quarter acre pond on the site. There are three feelings on the site. There are opportunities to connect with the other farm's we share tools and volunteer labor with.

    My name is Jesse and I have a day job at a local hand made chocolate and gelato factory. I am passionate about small business and believe we can make a bigger impact by changing our society by using business as a tool for good.

    I love cycleing. I have a recumbent tricycle that is in the process of having an electric motor installed on it to become a hubrid human electric.

    I helped with a solar panel building workshop in Ghana.

    I am a musician.
    I want to make fun and educational videos.

    I have many projects and believe that they can for together and suport one another.

    I think flushing human waste down the drain with fresh water is wrong. We can do better, let's stop this. I would like to be a rep for a High end compost toilet system, biolete.


    I compost carboard. I build soil. I have a lot to share:) I love people.
    I love the planet.

    I am generous. We have 2 sons.
    There are 12 people that love on our farm (in planning and securing the property phase, not full scale farming)

    I have bought and sold several properties I have also lost a few. I am very resourceful and believe where there is a will there is a way.

    I know it's important to count my blessings and give thanks, show gratitude for life by making a positive difference on the planet.

    I intend to create and open a solar powered laundry mat with drop off wash and gold services. I intend to create micro grocerie stores in the university area and poor neighborhoods.

    I need help with some of the basic chores of life to free my time to do more planning and implementing. I need help hanging laundry in the line, folding and ironing clothes. Making meals and cleaning. Moving mulch. Loading and unloading things ( I have a back injury and even though I know how to do plumbing and building and maintenance I am less able to do things and need supporting to get things done).

    I am good at finding free things and have knowledge of how to build. I want to help start various cottage indusstries and use them to generate wealth for a good sized flock of folks. Recycled glass containers and drinking wares, tables benches and shelves made from reclaimed wood. Artistic coffee tables made from old discarded toys and lumber, might fixtures and room deciders and privacy screens made from hard ware and led lightning and recycled glass.

    I have tools and space and creativity. I need more helping hands.

    We have radiant heated space in our home. We need help clearing out a garage that will be our lodging space for our workaeayers. Initial lodging space is in the living room on a really nice air mattress or the couch or sleeping mats on the floor. soon we will have a private room:)


    Huge 100 year old barn.

    Loving dog, cool people, community, avtive, empowered people love here, we are visionaries and are making things hapen, we are inspiring our community.

    The property is right behind a winerythat had a open to the public tasting room and a private club that we can walk to from our door in 5 minutes.
