Seattle Permaculture Meetup Message Board › Sustainable Urban Intentional Family
HAVE LOVE & RESOURCES…NEED HELP & ENTHUSIASM
Youthful, active, politically and socially alternative (often radical) senior couple seeks a light-heartedly serious, alternative-minded younger family, hopefully with a child or two, to invent a sustainable urban intentional family, to help us develop, maintain and steward our unusual property in Seattle and to shepherd us through our old age.
We want to:
Create an extended family to express our parent and grandparent creativity
Share in raising the kids
Find the young legs and energy needed to maintain and develop our property
Model a sustainable alternative lifestyle to lessen our carbon foot print
Build the authentic ties to see us through our ageing and dying years.
We have the love, time, money, wisdom, housing, resources and a business, plus a heart-felt commitment to “live the change we want to see in the world”.
The property currently houses seven tenants and requires a good deal of maintenance. There are opportunities for creating more leasable spaces. We can’t do it all by ourselves.
The younger couple we seek are focused grown-ups who understand that raising children takes way more than two parents; that balance between mind & body, spiritual & mental, work & play are basic to a healthy life; that our consumer economy is a freeway running off a cliff; that recycling and simplicity are a way of life; that our political system is of, for and by the 1%. You are practical enough to love working hard, building, gardening and playing. A commitment to self-reflection is essential. For us, we come to that through quiet, solitude and meditation (Sooz) and sorting nuts and bolts (Bill).
