YOUR TINY HOUSE HERE

El Nino rains have brought a burst of growth this year to Northern California and the Laytonville Ecovillage is still lush with greenery, wildflowers, happy trees and plants! But not for long. With Summer around the corner and temperatures already hitting well into the 90’s, we’re bracing for a hot summer and increasing the size of our misting station for “thermal delight” and shade structures for the garden and areas were we gather outside. Selective tree thinning is bringing in more sunshine for the fruit trees and garden and giving the outdoor solar shower a boost.
Work has continued cleaning up the landscape, new fruit trees planted, and several permaculture design installations are in the works.
There’s a lot of work to be done, which is where you might come in. We need work-traders of all persuasions and we’re offering both work-trade and internship opportunities.
2016 Work Trade and Internship Opportunities
Interns this season at LEV will be able to take part in projects that range from food, water and energy systems to participation in the “invisible structures” coming into form at the site as we search for new members to join our community. Domains of work-study can be tailored to your interests.
Internships provide a unique opportunity to spend a season or two at our rustic wilderness homestead and forming ecovillage, immersed in study of regenerative design. Internships are available each Spring–Fall season at 30 hours/week, with a minimal Internship of 3 months. Please see our website for details and direct any questions or requests for an application to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
We recently had a local “water witcher” Larry Desmond with Mendocino Waterworks identify several locations on the undeveloped parcels where wells can be drilled. The Laytonville Ecovillage is located on the floor of the Long Valley, where there is an abundance of underground water. Larry has a very good success rate with his work and we’re confident that when the time comes to drill wells that we’ll hit deep water.
On Saturday June 11th Dan Antonioli, Jay Shafer, and Robin Rudrow gave a presentation on why the Laytonville Ecovillage is a perfect setting for bringing tiny homes on wheels into a green neighborhood.
Real Estate Going Live
Last year we listed two parcels for sale but unfortunately hit some setbacks that gave us pause to regroup and relist this year. We are now “live” with three parcels for sale and in the next issue we’ll be providing more information about the offerings. In the meantime, if you’re interested be sure to view the website for details and contact Green Key Real Estate with questions.
