Woodland Homestead

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionMy wife and I and our 3 young kids are homesteading on 17 acres in Orange County Indiana. There are a number of things to see and do in this area such as a thriving farmers market, state parks, local music and art events, and more.
    We are interested in help with construction, housekeeping, childcare, woodcutting, gardening, and tending our fruit trees and animals. Which of these you do is up to you.
    For your accommodations we have a 12x32 cabin (including porch), which will have electric but not indoor plumbing. We'll provide water, there'll be a composting outhouse, and you can shower at our house, or a solar shower in summer.
    We'll welcome you to join our family for music and conversation around a campfire, for hikes in the woods, or for board and card games.

  • Additional info
  • We are interested in intentional community, and hope to start one here that will focus on being a good place for families and natural, healthy living. We are Christian, but not conservative and would welcome those of other religion and spirituality. We are moderate politically, and generally open-minded and easy-going.  We appreciate people having a love for the earth, and enjoy sharing what nature has to offer with others.
