We are an urban, gay friendly, eco-community in an century old neighborhood in the east village of Toledo, Ohio. We accept men as residents. We share meals and common living expenses. We can provide a means for you to bring in income to the house as a expediting van driver. No cdl necessary, just a clean license. Two weeks at home, then two weeks on the road. It is a top of the line commercial van. Must be able to pass random drug testing. Second option is you provide a monthly donation of $300 - $400 to cover utilities and other overhead. This could be from you having your own employment or you having a passive income.
We own the house and two adjacent city lots and will soon aquire a adjacent third lot. We have combined the lots as one large yard for muiltiple use: community garden, meditation gardens, festivals and fund raising events. We have all new 200 amp electric service. New water heater.
We have ample off street parking. The location of our house is also very walkable, bikable, and right on a bus line. I have walked downtown many times.
We have easy access to grocery stores and the farmers' market, which is easy walking over the bridge. We will grow as much of our own food as possible next year. We also plan to produce our own Monk's Mead, wine, and beer. We love to have fun.
We will soon offer various activities and events to the outside community: Kabbalah share group, spiritual delevopment classes, and seasonal festivals.
We are thinking of opening a coffee house, for a suggested donation amount. Espresso, latte, smoothies... The location of the house is well suited for this. We are located directly across from a very busy convenient store, the Eastside mini mart.
Status: House opened in June 2011
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
Former/Other Names: holy angels monastery Harmony House Toledo
