Do you enjoy living with and around animals in natural surroundings with easy access to the city? Do you have experience with animal care and adoption?

Are you looking for a place to live in community with other people while exploring self-care practices (Body, mind, spirit) together to rest and renew?

Do you have skills in gardening, landscape, animal care, home repair/ remodeling/ construction and/ or sustainable living practices?

Do you value solitary self-care time as well as community-building?

I’m a Navy Nurse Corps veteran who is looking for a mutual assistance arrangement as well as a like-minded and hearted small community focused on exploring self-care practices, community building practices and sustainable living skill-building. I am looking for 3-4 people who could commit for 12-18 months to helping me care for the animals and evolve this space toward an animal-friendly transitional living community dedicated to self-care practices and sustainable living skill-building.

Ideal part-pay/ part-trade opportunity for anyone:

-focused on animal welfare and the transformative capacity of the human-animal bond.

-willing to dedicate up to 25 hours weekly to the animal care/ adoption and the evolution of the property. (dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, goats, pigs-not for sale, breeding or dinner)

-working no more than 25-30 hours weekly at an outside job OR is involved in student activities.

-willing to participate in 10-15 hours weekly of therapeutic self-care practices led by host in support of individual rest and renewal (part of a pilot program!)

-interested in working and living together in community, sharing skills and learning from each other.

Prefer single individuals, rent min at $500 per month and to be set with utilities based on finalized community.
