  • Description


    I am a single woman, a vocal and expressive arts coach, and artist who has been establishing a permaculture community gathering place and sanctuary in Port Townsend, WA over the past 4 years.
    My vision on the land is to slowly grow the food production including an orchard, greenhouse and flower and herb gardens beyond the good sized garden we currently grow in. I currently host small private and community events here, and want to cultivate the land to be the most lush, inspiring, welcoming place it could be - to humans and our non-human friends. You would learn about and have a chance to apply some permaculture design, and hopefully bring your own skills and knowledge into the vision.

    Beyond this acre of land, there is an extensive organic farming community in the next town over, with rich soil and diverse approaches to creating our own sustainable greenbelt. We enjoy a strong ethic for sustainability and local living here - some organizations that reflect this are our version of Transition Town (local 20/20), Fort Worden Life Long Learning, Centrum Arts, Port Townsend Ecovillage, multiple arts and cultural festivals and social activist efforts like the Poetic Justice Theater Ensemble. I moved here because of the passionate and creative engagement that makes this feel something like a one big intentional community.

    We are working to build an orchard this season, and hope to also erect a greenhouse. People with building skills and who love to use their strength to get cool things done are highly encouraged! Currently I Also have a need is for a photographer. I need pictures of the land, and of myself, and would love to exchange with someone, ideally with experience, who can take great photographs. And, If you have solid skills in administrative computer programs for small businesses, let me know. There is a large garden, two hugelkultures, and other points on the property that would benefit greatly from some caring hands. Depending on who applies we may focus on gardening, or on fence building, or landscaping that includes some more labor intensive tasks. We are also finishing the first stage of a pottery/sculpture barn and may need help winterizing it.

    A 2 person tent on a platform, nestled along the edge of a wooded area and opens to the east facing meadow. You would have access to an outdoor kitchen and use the bathroom and shower in my home.

    The pacific northwest, and the Olympic Peninsula specifically is a treasure of this country for it's lush green beauty, snow capped mountain views, and unending shores. Port Townsend is lively community with many activities to enjoy on the water (kayaking/sailing), land (hikes, beach walks, biking, wildcrafting/foraging, Marine science museum), and more. This is also an arts town, and there is always great local music, dancing (from club, partner to ecstatic/conscious dance), art galleries, poetry reading, theater... We are a Victorian seaport, so you can explore a rich history of what almost became what Seattle is today. Thankfully it did not, and we do all we can to maintain the small town character and community connectedness that put Port Townsend on the map. It's also a 35 minute to 1 hour drive to the Olympic mountains!
    As for getting around you can rent a bike, some public transport, walk...
