We are two adults and one young girl(one year old in march 2012) living in what used to be "the apprentice cabin" at the Cold Pond Community Land Trust. What we have going is sort of a small farmstead within a larger farming community, surrounded by thousands of acres of woodland, situated in a small town in western New Hampshire. We are looking for people to stay with us, any time of year, short or long-term, to join our family and help us to grow and raise the food we eat! Things are in their beginning stages here - we have plans for the future, which have an emphasis on community, relationships, health, and celebrations of life and love. We want true community: a family, openness and honesty, love and gratitude and appreciation for the beauty surrounding us. We are excited about unschooling, and the possibility of a children's culture here. For that reason, we would be especially excited about people with children to join our family long-term, and to participate equally in the visionary and practical work involved in our life here. Our goal is to grow/raise everything we eat right here, and to do it with love and gratitude. We have a small but expanding vegetable/herb/seed garden and a big compost pile. There is a large orchard, including apple, pear, peach, and plum trees, right outside our cabin. There are also tons of blueberry bushes and a few rows of black and red rhaspberries! This spring (2012) we plan to get chickens (layers and meat birds) and sheep for meat and wool. We have other plans for this spring as well, including plans to build a small greenhouse and possibly other small structures such as an outdoor shower. We would also like to experiment with growing chicken feed for next winter. The cabin we live in is very small and does not have electricity or running water. Access to well water, phone, freezer, and electricity is a short walk up the hill, and wash water comes from the stream behind the cabin. The "bathroom" is a composting outhouse. We have no shower. In the summer we bathe in the stream, and in the winter we heat water on the woodstove for bathing. In the summer, there are a few options as far as sleeping situations. We can provide a tent, or you can bring one. There is also a possibility, depending on how everyone involved feels, of sharing the cabin as a sleeping space. In the winter, the only warm place to sleep is the cabin, so considering the size of the cabin, it would be an important thing to consider carefully. In terms of diet, we are weston-price influenced; we eat alot of animal foods. It might be hard to accommodate special diets long-term, but we are not closed off to people with other diets. What is important to us is the quality of the food we eat: if we dont raise it ourselves, we want it to be organic. The language we speak is english. Dogs are welcome, but we live with a dog who can be territorial with other dogs, so keep that in mind. Please contact us (Joey and Sarah) if you are interested! The preferred method of contact is Phone.
