Hello all......hoping to write a cohesive post, but to what degree that gets accomplished will depend on the two little ones (2 and 4). I'm a SAHM to two marvelous blessings, Indiana (Indy) and Esme; aspiring homesteader and midwife. My interests run from sustainable gardening/agriculture, traditional food preparation & preservation, alterna-building, herbs & natural healing, midwifery and babywearing. Basically, I'm happiest with dirt of some sort under my fingernails, whipping up herbal tinctures with a baby in a sling Our lives have taken a decidedly different turn, however, when my husband was laid off in Seattle three years ago. We've been living with my in-laws for the last year (almost)in eastern Washington and haven't been able to stretch our homesteading wings. Feeling stunted and grounded.....we're looking for *something*; a fresh start. My husband just recently was hired at a small electrical co-op; so our finances are beginning to right themselves. We won't have $$ to buy land outright for quite sometime. We are NOT apartment-dwellers....but my husband doesn't see much alternative. In the spirit of cultivating coincidences........I am putting this out there..........

We are looking for an existing homestead/farm whose owners are needing help. In exchange for help, we would need room/board. My children thrive when they can run around, barefoot, stomping in mud and watching Nature work its magic. They are generally well-behaved, mannered little ones. We practice attachment-style parenting and I'm accustomed to hard work. I grew up on a farmette in central Pennsylvania where irrigation was a foreign word. (It still bites me in the butt that you have to *pay* for water here in eastern WA). Accomodations need not be fancy....and I'm a heck of a cook

Please email if interested or have an idea for me....

Mindfully.......

Lisa
