Ideally, for our forming community, prospective members will be skilled natural builders with a wide range of maintenance and repair skills and be experienced in off grid living as well as a good communicator. That being said, a variety of skills and knowledge may be an asset to our community – we strive for diversity on many levels. When the whole community accepts the prospective member, they will agree to act in accordance to the covenants and the operating agreement by signing both documents.

Hello my name is Christine. I’m the mother of two sons. Both my boys are married, and I have my first grandchild.
Though I haven’t gotten to see her yet because she lives in Vietnam with my youngest son and his wife.
I’ve always been very interested in living a greener life and reducing my carbon footprint. For this reasons Ive spent much of my spare time learning different techniques needed to live off the land.
I raised my boys as a single mother, working long hours. Once my youngest moved out, I quit my job, and moved to Northern California.
When my youngest got married I bought a small trailer, and started traveling the country. Staying up on BLM lands and camping in wma’s. Just enjoying being in nature.
Before I headed out on my camping expedition. I spent some time on a little Eco Village in a small town called Laytonville.
There I learned more about permacalture, and earthen building. I help maintain the land and the facility’s. I have a good understand of humanure.
While I was there I became quite skilled in cob building, and helped teach diverse groups of people.
from there I moved up to an off-grid Farm in the California mountains. Where I helped raise different types of foul along with sheep and alpacas, and grew and maintained a small organic vegetable garden. As well and normal farm maintenance, like ranning and help maintain water lines, fence maintenance, clearing and digging ditches, exe exe.
I have always had a desire to be closer to nature. In my youth I was in FFA, and in my spare time worked with horses.
I very much enjoy alternative building techniques, and have a strong desire to one day build my own off grid, eco friendly home.
I do enjoy living off grid.
After traveling around the country Ive come to the conclusion, I’d like to find some place that I could fit in, with other like-minded people. Where I can use the skills I have obtained, settle in and live.
I have over a decade in construction experience. From flooring and sheeting to electrical and plumbing. I can use most construction tools and have a few of my own. Along with over a decade of food handling and another decade in electronic assembly. I feel I have the skills nessasary to be a productive member in any community that would take me in.
