Hello! Two down to earth people and two sweet pups looking for land, community, and a winter home in Vermont or New York

My name is Ruby and me and my dear friend Vili are seeking land to build a community or a preexisting community that really fits.

Currently we are also seeking a temporary cozy living situation for the winter. If you need eco-conscious, responsible, caring people to house sit, land sit, animal sit please reach out! We both have lots of experience with community and caring for land and animals. Or if you have a space to share for the winter, please reach out too! We are happy to help with projects if needed.

The long term goal is to find land in New York or Vermont. From experience we feel tentative about joining a preexisting community but if reading over this you really feel like we would be a good fit, don’t hesitate to reach out and say hi. Our land goals are at least 7 acres, more ideally 10 or more…we do hope to share our space with others so the more the better. Between us we have some savings to put down. If you have an -in- on a piece of affordable land that needs rehoming, please contact. We will take good care of it.

So our vision is to live in harmony with the land. I’m sure a lot of visions start this way. But truly, we’re not interested in taking a bulldozer or a backhoe to a piece of mother earth. We are both gentle creatures that want to garden and live as gently as possible. We also have no interest in raising animals to slaughter- as a collective ideal this is important to us. We also value simplicity; we want to remain off grid, without internet, complicated solar set ups, or the like. We’re both experienced and comfortable, and prefer, living with less. We really just want to live our lives the way we both feel called to live them, with our hands in the earth, building home, health, community, and care. We are not that interested in a regimented community style with routined meetings, meals…etc. We just want to live naturally as good friends would want to live together. Help eachother as feels right and good and fun (which is often) but not be set in bound “community rules”. Really functional community, in our eyes and experience, takes the right set of people that know eachother well… which is why we’re most comfortable starting with us at this point.

So if reading this you feel like you might have a connection for us please tell us! And thank you thank you thank you!!

Oh yes, we also have two sweet pups, Mabel and Bagu.

Thanks again, putting out the feelers to make the dream happen!!
