No new lots available currently, but there is space in existing buildings for new members.
We own and operate a living machine in two greenhouses that constitutes our wastewater-treatment system with some indoor, almost year-round growing space. We have lots of gardens (and lots of deer), a recreational pond, and an interest in finding others to continue to build our community. Although there are currently no open building lots, that may change, or already existing homes could become available.
There are artists, teachers, carpenters and builders, an accountant, a forester, and a mechanic/designer. Tom’s Community Woodworks repairs and refinishes furniture. Barbara has created a beautiful space for meditation and yoga in O-AN Zendo. Jean teaches PSU classes in art and deep ecology so students experience woods and pond in community.
Some of us dream of some kind of community/learning center that would serve as a gathering space.
