    Gardening

    Hello Karen, YES! In fact, we do encourage planting trees, vineyards, and gardens. We do not want to micromanage your property as some other developments might do, but we do want every owner to plant trees or vineyards. After all, this is a sustainable community.

    Farmers Markets

    Hello Elwez, Yes, the farmers market has changed somewhat in the spring. Some prices on products like the bell peppers started to go down and some, like the apples, started to climb up. And of course, with the new season, we see new produce. I think you guys left right before the great stuff started to appear. Right now we enjoy lots of great asparagus at a $1.45 a big bundle. About 4 weeks ago we started having strawberries. First, they were at 1,700 CLP/kg, which is $1.12/pound and today I bought some at 750 CLP/kg, which is $0.49/pound. Within the last week, we bought more than 50 lbs of strawberries. We love to eat them while they are fresh and in season and freeze a lot for smoothies as well. The watermelons are still by the slice and I think that will change only in a month or so....

    Hello

    Hello Elwez, it's a bit strange to call you that, when I know your real name😉! It was a pleasure to have you and your beautiful family close by and to get to know you better! We really enjoyed spending time with you guys and completely fell in love with your cute baby! It's great to see you here, on the forum....and to read your thoughts! We will try to keep you posted on the progress of your house construction in this forum, so other people also may get to know the process.

    Job opportunity

    Currently, we have found a few people for construction work (and we are looking for more) but we are still looking for someone with permaculture experience. If you have a background in permacultural gardening and you are interested to work in a sustainable community, please contact us. We know you are out there. 🙂
  5. Hello Karen, welcome to the forum!
  6. ABSOLUTELY!!! We would love to have people like you in our neighborhood. I think working together is a great way to get to know your neighbors and build relationships. In my opinion, this is what a community is about!

    Tiny homes on wheels

    Yes, we will have a restriction on the minimum size of a house that you can build in this subdivision. We really don't want people to live in mobile homes or RVs. This is a more upscale neighborhood and the absolute minimum house should not be smaller than 500 sqft.

    From Washington State

    Oh wow, we have been to Washington many times. It's a beautiful and a very green state! My kids love the Great Wolf Lodge near Olympia. Welcome to the forum! We will be glad if you can share your experience with us on this forum. Or let us know if you have any questions! Where in Washington are you located? We are very often in that area and would like to maybe check out your off-grid project one day!

    Update for the project

    Hello OffGrid Thinker, Yes, you are right. Recently we didn't have much activity on the board and there have been no new blogs posted. However, the activity on the forum is up to the readers. We are here to answer their questions. Once we will post progress on the project, I think it will ignite more interest and more questions. I am sorry it took me a few days to answer your question, but I was traveling abroad. No worries, let me assure you, the project is happening. I will tell the owner to take the time and write some more blogs. He was busy overseeing the activity on the property. Old structures had to be removed, the roads are being developed and the perimeter fences are being improved. Thank you so much for your question.
