High above the spectacular Methow Valley of north central WA sits a magical place by the creek under the watch of Lookout Mountain. I'm in the process of creating gardens & a home orchard while trying to grow extra food for the local food bank. I have future aspirations of livestock & poultry. I'm looking for a few good men, women & unbinary gender peeps to camp, garden, hike, mitigate fire fuels & be merry!

BYOF: while I am more than happy to share the harvest when available, I am not able to otherwise provide food at this juncture (not that I don't want to). However, there's lots of space to camp (fire safe only) with running water (both creek & well), including winter camping & potential (no dump) RV space. There are also many trails very close by & the land is bordered by Forest E & W.

Right now, the most urgent projects include fire mitigation including creating defensible space (essentially fire lines) & brush removal while maintaining winter browse for deer, elk, et al. I would entertain your presence in exchange for help with sustainable forestry (thinning unhealthy trees, not logging), as well as any donations, whether material or monetary for the procurement of livestock/poultry. This is a stunning place which I would love to share with some like minded LGBTQASU peeps (BTW: ASU = Asexual, Straight & Unbinary, LOL!)...I didn't want to leave anyone out! Host (yours truly) graduated from a year long Wilderness Education & Ecology program...I'm happy to share the knowledge! Thanks

Hello Terry!

That is an intriguing photograph. It looks a bit like an old fire look out, only not tall (or sturdy!) enough.... which leads me to think it's a tree house for the treeless! Or just a highrise for maximum views at dawn... did you put it up yourself?

HI, that sounds like a lovely place to thrive. I'll be going through the Methow and would enjoy helping prepare the firebreaks, Habitat, etc during a visit for a few days. I'm interested in the Nature of that area and learning more. I'll send a PM with my contact. I don't have a exact schedule yet. Thanks

Hi Terry. Do you have a update? I camped near you every Spring for 5 weeks the past few years. And we are at last almost ready to start our land search and the Methow is at the top of our list. We plan to do small scale permaculture and conservation. Thanks and best for 2022.
