Is your heart alive to beauty? Do you passionately yearn to live in a really beautiful quiet bucolic place? Are you a mature but physically vigorous man or exceptionally strong and skilled woman age 45-62, who relishes outdoor life?
Are you keenly interested in gardening? Would you be happy to be part of the solution, in terms of land mangagement/climate change issues-- engaged in a program that seeks to maintain a luxurious vegetative mantle and avoid compaction, bare soil, erosion?
I'm offering a wonderful living situation (partnership, not job): a large old farmhouse on an old 140 acre farm of mixed pastures and wood bottomlands and uplands in Kingston, Arkansas. The farm is in the middle of a 5 mile long creek valley where almost all the properties are 300-400 acres, located 50 mi east of the college town Fayetteville, AR and 15 mi from trailheads of the Buffalo River.
You would pay only $120/month (flat rate that covers expenses to pay utility for the farmhouse) do about 10 hours of general maintenance a month. Some seasonal chores we'd do together, some could be divided.
Farmhouse is mellow and lovely. Surrounded by great beds of old ornamental perennials. 2 story house, ground floor stays cool in summer., big old trees on 3 sides. Phone line and high-speed internet. 2 Sufi centers with classes, one under an hour driving time.
