We have an offgrid shipping container to live in – available October 2021 – with woodstove heat, on-demand propane shower & access to well water (no indoor plumbing), composting toilet, minimal electricity for a light & to charge devices, semi-furnished and wifi. Some income can be generated from existing asparagus & strawberry beds. Tools and other equipment are available for use.  Looking for a 6-8 month commitment at a minimum.  Not suitable for children.  Pets allowed with prior agreement - must be behaved around livestock (chickens & ducks) & other cats & dogs. 

We also have for sale 25 acres containing field, forest and pond, access to electricity for the right small scale farmers to join our homestead community. Sale has covenants restricting destructive activities (e.g. no industrial agriculture, no mining, no clearcut logging). We are seeking like minded people who care about the environment, want to live simply & offgrid, and who want to live in community with others, collaborating on projects where many hands make for less work.
