Hello fellow Permies!

We have a room for rent that we’d love to have a permie person or family take. We’re thinking a work trade for rent which would involve some house cleaning and grounds maintenance. We have 1 acre that’s slowly moving towards food forest so we have plenty of food from the trees and garden to share as well. We live right outside the Portland metro area.

We started the food forest almost 7yrs ago. The trees and bushes are just starting to really ramp up now and it’s awesome!

We think 1hr a day on average per week is reasonable. You could knock that out on a weekend and then have the rest of your week free. We have a bunch of cool projects in mind that would be possible with some help. Projects include:
1. Outdoor kitchen with rocket stove and cob bench
2. Dry stack rock wall to plant citrus against. A fruit wall of sorts.
3. Fence work. Built by us but needs some modifications for winter when it’s windy.
4. Swale installation
5. Probably more that just aren’t top of mind.

There’s fast internet (200Mb) for work remote needs.
I think with some like minded people we could accomplish some great things.

Hi Chris,

Any chance you're still looking for someone? I am a natural builder and herbalist and this sounds like just what I'm looking for!

Cheers,
Meesh
