2 different properties available for camping/work trading. One is a new 50 acre raw-ish property 45 minutes from Asheville near the town of Hot Springs NC. The other is a 2 acre family permaculture homestead 2 miles outside Asheville NC - Home to a 14 yo homeschooled girl and many species of farm animals and pets, as well as a multitude of both cultivated and wild plants and fungi. We've been here 5 years and have immersed ourselves in an experiential learning process with a future vision of micro-village-style land sharing and self reliance. We also hold occasional skillshares and workshops at the Asheville land.
