Land Seeker Description

Seeking land for small stewardship community with 2 or more lots or ability to partition but keep together under one stewardship organization.

Our goals include:

  • Medicinal herb production and educational gardens
  • Orchard fruit, berries, edible and medicinal mushroom cultivation
  • Potential for educational or event space
  • Surface water a big plus:  River, creek, lake, ponds
  • Seeking zoning that has more latitude than residential or EFU

What features of the property are essential?

IDEAL:
- Well with good GPD and quality testing.
- Surface water (creek, river, lake, ponds)
- Some existing infrastructure. Open to building from scratch if location is right.
