Family seeks new cooperative home and land.

Tom, Lily and I are seeking a new home.  We have crafted an ad (see below) and are distributing it to friends, our local permaculture guild, and Craigslist.  Whew.  I feel sort of exposed.  We’ll see what happens.

Family of three (2 friendly adults and one delightful two-year-old girl) seeks to join or form a cooperative household and small farm/large garden.  Are you interested in good company, family-style shared living space, shared meals, permaculture, and growing some of your own food?  Are you questioning the cultural paradigms that keep us isolated from one another and increasingly beholden to a dysfunctional economy?  If so, we would like to hear from you.  We envision sharing a kitchen and living room with 1 – 3 other families or individuals, but having separate bedrooms.  We are mindful of the need to balance private and public time and space and have experience with living in community.  We require a low-carb, non-vegetarian diet and would like to raise chickens and/or goats.  We have a fluffy, indoor-only cat.  We hope to remain in the Pioneer Valley.  We would like to co-own an existing structure rather than renting or building from scratch, but this is negotiable.  We believe that security and health are to be found in community, improved self-sufficiency, deep ecological wisdom, and integration of work and home.



  1. Now if I just had that teleportation device to make getting to work a snap from PV – I would totally be in! 🙂

    I wish you good fortune and faith on this pursuit, my dear. You and the family deserve it!
