Come Learn and Live Sustainably at Blue Jay Lake Farm
Blue Jay Lake Farm is located on Cortes Island, BC. The farm is nestled in Green Valley and includes 300 acres of surrounding forest and three lakes. These natural amenities allow us to be a self-sustaining, working farm that is off the grid. Our goal is to provide people with the opportunities and experiences to learn about organic farming and gardening, raising livestock, food preserving, and alternative energy.
We are primarily looking to share everything that this abundant and diverse property has to offer from the lakes to the hiking trails to our charming livestock and our amazing produce, but we are also interested in sharing the work that it takes to maintain the farm. We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, open, hard working and independent, and are able to work in collaboration with farm residents. There are many ongoing projects, however we have a new keen interest in learning about growing and threshing grains, cranberries, pressing our own oils, and collecting hydrogen for power.
There is always a variety of people staying and working on the farm from Wwoofers to apprentices to casual workers and families. We are very interested in individuals or families who would like to share what Blue Jay Lake Farm has to offer.

I have a 20 acre farm in Sultan that I need to move on from. It's currently set up for equestrian, but it could easily be turned into an organic operation-- there's even an almost-new Kubota tractor and a variety of implements.
There are three lots on the property, so there's the potential for a small intentional community.
I can live with an extendable lease-to-own option that may provide a path for someone who cannot qualify for a conventional mortgage.
It's a lovely place that I've put a lot of my soul into and would love to see flourish through others.
Here's a link with some information about the property: http://www.cordus.net/12806/index.htm

Clearwater CommonsBothell , Washington

We have house lots available at our community on north creek in Bothell, WA. We are intergenerational, ranging from small children to elders. Members share an intention of living a lifestyle that sustains a balance between individual and community needs and the natural ecosystem.
The Clearwater Commons LLC began in 2006 when a group of families purchased a 7.4 acre site on North Creek, 11 miles north of Seattle’s city limits. The site includes wetlands, forest, garden space, and salmon-supporting creek habitat.
We begin construction of the first phase of homes in spring 2011 building 8 of 16 units. There is a mix of two and three-bedroom townhomes and single family homes. We have seven families who are members, and nine homes to sell.
The inspiration for this community grew from founding members involvement in The Clearwater School located across the street. Our shared experience with the school encourages us to allow the structures for community meetings, gatherings, and events to evolve through our daily interactions.
We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have, or meet to give you a tour of the land. You can also visit our website for ongoing updates and events.

Room for rent on/near October 1st in a 2-person apartment in a 'regular'-seeming Seattle neighborhood. I have been cultivating relationships with over 50 neighbors within 2 blocks of our address intentionally, conversationally engaging in asset-based community development. As a result, a fun-driven community communication infrastructure is taking shape, which I will share on at upcoming NICA gathering. Our shared goal is to cultivate intimacy between neighbors by making one another welcome in our homes, in whatever form feels fun and appropriate for each neighbor. Ultimately, these 9 blocks will be aware we’re a circle of lifelong learners, linked with surrounding 9-bock 'circles'.
I’m a 20-something gregarious, creative, go-getter female seeking Same to share spacious apartment (and big garage to convert into a workshop space). I've lived co-operatively and wish to continue. 'Perpetual potlucks' (not EVERY day) are part of my business, which you are welcome to join if it's a fit.
Your share: $650/month
Includes water and free built-in laundry facilities
Your room is 12x11 feet, has a 6 foot wide built-in closet (sliding doors running flush with the 11 foot wall on the right), and is in a quiet area with great privacy and a 6 foot wide window on the left, adjacent your closet.
N 47th St & Evanston Ave N
Bus 44, 358, & 5
A healthy climb from Fremont PCC and Sunday Market. A flatter ride from Greenlake PCC, Wallingford’s Wednesday and Phinney’s Friday markets. Very near Woodland Park.
