Visit my lovely family home which has a B&B downstairs. Urban permaculture in the making on a big city lot in a big 6 bedroom 4 bathroom house. I am very creative and DIY, my home has many unique art features, and more always on the way. I believe a paradigm shift is on it's way, and I want to be a part of it! Looking for ways to live in a more eco-friendly, earth based way. I'm a vegetarian, empassioned by natural healing. I am very resourceful and love building or creating art with recycled materials.

See how a progressive, creative American woman is working to evolve her culture, enrich the land, increase biodiversity and be a part of that work. Practice English, connect with kids and pets, probably meet other people.
There are always a variety of small scale odd jobs that can be done in the house and garden here-I'd love to employ your best skill sets if possible as well as have help with the general daily life. A few specific things: I'd like a few things built like a chicken coop and a better compost bin. Small plumbing jobs like replacing sink and countertop, or faucet. Exterior of the house needs to be painted, a few rooms, maybe, too.. Cleaning, weeding, harvesting, helping with childcare, etc. I have a website that could use updating as far as the behind the scenes meta-tags type of stuff. I need rain barrels built. Want to build a cob pizza oven. If you were here right now, you could scrape labels of recycled wine bottles, but that task should be done soon. Things of this nature.
You will have your own 10x11 furnished bedroom with queen size bed and closet, empty dressers. There are clean sheets and towels. There is a bathroom across the hall from your room (one of two) with w/d. You will have access to the kitchen or sharing meals.
I'm on bus lines and this city is fairly bikeable. Beautiful Nature here from the Ocean, Rivers, Mountains to a Rain Forest and our Puget Sound are what this region is known for. Great museums, a fun art scene, festivals, coffee houses, bars, restaurants are close at hand.
