    About us:
    We are a family of 5 (mother, father and four children ages 1-10 years) juggling work, family duties, and the building of our permaculture homestead in the stunning high desert landscape along the US/Mexico border region of Cochise County, Arizona. We also run a nonprofit community garden program in the nearby city of Bisbee and are refurbishing an old miner's shack in Bisbee. We love gardening, exploring nature, cooking amazing meals, playing sports, caring for our animals, and participating in community building activities.

    The area:
    Our home is nestled in the beautiful Huachuca Mountain range within the Coronado National Forest, south of Sierra Vista, AZ. There is a creek that typically runs July-April within a 10 minute walk from our home, and many trails and hikes that can be easily accessed from our home. The San Pedro River Riparian Area, just a few miles away is another great natural wonder to visit, filled with majestic cottonwood trees and hundreds of species of wildlife to view. Besides the Huachuca's and the San Pedro, the Chiricahua and Dragoon Mountains Ranges offer more opportunity to explore the magnificent nature and deep history of our land. The nearby City of Bisbee is a major destination for art-centric visitors, history buffs, or those seeking a fun night out. It's an old mining town reinvented in the 70's by hippies. It is full of beautiful early 1900's architecture, art galleries, bars, vintage shops, and independent restaurants. Live music can be found around every corner, day and night. So much to see and do in Bisbee.

    The Homestead:
    A large single story 1990's stick-built home on 1 acre with a well. Our property is blessed with loads of mature pine trees and other lush landscaping for escaping the high temps that come with desert living. In the last year we have put in 16 fruit trees, as well as blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and vegetable gardens. We also started raising chickens for eggs this year and currently have a 20 bird flock. In our home we value music and we have a music room with a piano and other instruments that we encourage guests to play. We eat local and organic as much as possible and practice recycling and a fairly healthy lifestyle.
