Good size vegetable garden area that has been overrun with 'weeds'...Excellent candidate for sheet mulching!
10  years ago it was designed and functioned as two sets of eight beds separated by a straw bale chicken house.  It has since been neglected and needs someone to love and care for it once again.

Bright, sunny mornings in living room
Open floor plan
New wood stove (installed 2 years ago)

The grounds require work to maintain but they can give handsomely.
We ask that you take care of the place and pay rent on time and in full every month.

What else do you want to know?


Pictures will be added shortly.

SOME OF OUR QUALITIES
Mushroom cultivator, knitter, radical homemaker, kitchen witch, internet radio dj, Great pyrenese puppy, Merlin the super dog, flock of chickens averaging 12 eggs a day this week,  two pygora (pygmy angora) goats whose fiber is not currently being utilized except to keep them warm and their best friend Budleia the rescued llama.  Games of darts and music in The Soup Caves
Dexter cow(s), providing fresh raw milk, cream and beef are likely in our future  This spring we also intend to acquire a swarm of honey bees and begin that adventure.    Let's coordinate our garden plans, work towards major seed saving and growing as much of our own food on site as possible, trading our excesses, and make life richer for all involved.


NEIGHBORHOOD
South Store Cafe is about a 2 minute walk (at most) for soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries (the strawberry shortcake is AMAZING in season) and Stumptown espresso.  Just try to resist.

Gotter Prairie Natural Area is a 170 acre wetland restoration project.  Walk 5 minutes and you are there.
