Housing Coop in Oxford looking for members

Dragonfly Housing Coop in Oxford looking for members. Here is a little bit more information about the coop below. If you're interested please send an email to dragonflyoxford@gmail.com with your answers to the questions below by the 7th of September. If you sound the right fit for the house, we will then invite you to come meet us. Dragonfly is a housing co-op that has been going for over 17 years. It is part of the network of housing co-ops Radical Routes. The housing co-op was started for and continues to be a house and centre for people involved in activism and organising around environmental and social justice issues [more info here: http://www.radicalroutes.org.uk/]. The house has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an open-plan living room and kitchen. It has a back garden with fruit trees and bushes, a greenhouse, tool shed, sauna and fire pit. The house backs on to Florence Park and is on a sociable street (Campbell Road) - we have a good relationship with lots of our neighbours. We are a friendly and sociable house. We cook and eat communally and this is an important part of communal life for us. Shared meals are vegan and although people can prepare vegetarian food for themselves we agree not to have meat in the house. We get a weekly veg box delivered and get bulk whole-food orders from an ethical supplier. We have a system to take it in turns to cook and wash up and we also share the cleaning of the house. We have monthly house meetings where we discuss any issues that arise and decide maintenance and development tasks. We are responsible as a house for any maintenance, painting, fixing etc. At least one member of the house will attend the quarterly Radical Routes network gathering around the country. We occasionally have house or bonfire parties or people around for dinner or to use the sauna. We also often host meetings and have people from other Radical Routes co-ops or activist networks staying on the sofa. We are really looking for people who are interested in being part of our community for the medium to long term (over a year). We would consider couples if the situation was right, so please get in touch! When our current housemates move out there will be 4 remaining members (Henry, Alice, Chris and Chris). We range from the ages of 22 - 30. We are all involved in working, volunteering or campaigning around environmental and social justice issues and this is a big part of the ethos of the house. Rent costs are £300 (although this may rise in the next year) and we pay a set amount of £65 per month for all bills, council tax and our veg box/food order. Questions to answer: 1) Dragonfly is a housing co-op that houses people involved in social change work. Please tell us about your involvement in activism or other social change work? 2) As a Radical Routes housing co-op, residents need to be able to commit to attending a minimum of one of the Radical Routes weekend gatherings per year and potentially joining a Radical Routes working group if you were interested in that (at least one of us needs to be in an RR working group). Please tell us what you think about this and how it would work for you. 3) We share food and eat communally and take it in turns to cook for each other and wash-up after the meal (each person usually doing at least one evening a week). We also do around 30 minutes of cleaning in communal areas each week. We have a house meeting every month to discuss and make decisions about the house, schedule/decide on maintenance tasks, and review items for the Radical Roots Gatherings. Please tell us what you think about this and how it would work for you. 4) We as the residents are collectively responsible for the up keep of the use and garden and you need to have a willingness to get involved with house maintenance jobs, how do you feel about this and do you have any particular skills or experience you can bring around this? 5) Do you have pets? 7) Do you have any support or access needs, habits or routines that you think may have an impact on people you live with (please include information on current or recent addiction issues such as drugs, alcohol or gambling). 8) Other people in our house: We are a friendly house and have occasional people staying over on the sofa perhaps once or twice a month. People's partners sometimes stay for two or three nights a week. We sometimes hold meetings about local community work or activist groups in the living room. We sometimes have small gatherings of friends over and the odd party. Are you comfortable about what we have outlined here? 9) If you were offered the room, when would you be looking to move in and how long are you looking to stay for?

Wanted: Good woman 45-65 ish

You: Calm, nurturing, happy, strong, resourceful, empathetic, and open minded, with driving license and desire to become live in friend, social companion and helper. Me: Vivacious, sapiosexual lady in mid 50's with anxiety and a moderate degree of PTSD, not interested in dating. Many interests, including rocket mass stoves/heaters, composting toilets, living off grid, permaculture and community living etc :-) Accommodation is offered rent free in exchange for help with cooking, cleaning and initially help to declutter and organise other stuff around the home. You would need to pay your own way when it comes to food and housekeeping costs because I'm very much into good quality food and making as much as possible from basic ingredients, where practical, avoiding processed food. No palm oil, hydrogenated veg oil, etc... The eventual hope is to co organise and develop a structure that will be the launch pad for a small community to develop. If you enjoy a challenge, are reliable, respectful, warm and friendly with a sense of humour, integrity and desires to build a self sufficient, permaculture type way of living as as green and frugal as possible, please contact me! :-) I have my own large (but for the moment cluttered) home, 2 miles from the beach with a small garden and a friend half a mile away who has a garden that can be developed like an allotment. I am located in between the popular seaside towns of Poole and Bournemouth, on the south coast of England and ideally located for all amenities and transport links. For now, this means being located in town but my ambition is to find something quieter without being far from the necessities. I have just acquired a small, old motorhome too and am aiming to get out and have fun times as soon as I can find the right lady to enjoy helping me gently build the confidence to expand my horizons. So someone with relevant experience too would be pretty wild! :-) Long term goals are to research the foundation of building a small intentional community for the joy of mutual support and friendship. I am working to sell my home when the appropriate group of people have coalesced and when we have identified what direction we need to go in based on group skills, needs and resources. If any of this resonates with you, please do message me with details of you and your circs, hopes and dreams at bumfodderdisposal at gmail dot com and I will respond. Include a phone number and the times you are available too and I will be very pleased to phone you! For some reason I never seem to get proper notifications from this site and have missed too many messages so please do email me directly on the address above if you want to be assured of a reply. Looking forward to hearing from you. :-) Ad astra, let the adventure begin...! :-)

48yr old woman and dog - both well behaved, seeking accommodation ( in-lieu)

Hello there diggers and dreamers! We are seeking a lovely community to come and live and work and play. Environmentally & spiritually tuned, smart, witty, compassionate folk with excellent manners offered and desired. Arrangement could be a waged post or reduced rent for a working-part-exchange (in-lieu). I do have extra curricular artistic pursuits and would not necessarily be on site 100% of each week but am able to structure a working week around those. Could commit to something long term should we be a good fit. My dog is exceptionally well behaved as am I. Currently working a live-in job in the South East, one month's notice would be required (as at August 2018) Happy to consider a relocation to any part of the UK. If you have suitable accomodation and need help with any of the following, then I might be worth contacting. Light gardening, cleaning, dog walking, other non commerical animal care, event organising, press and marketing, website design, newsletter writing/editing, proof reading, driving, storytelling (adults and children), cryptic crosswords, jamming, busking and laughing. I am vegetarian, my dog is not, but I could keep a separate fridge if a non meat household. THANK YOU very much for reading and do get in touch if you are liking the sound of us (or have any questions) for your community/household. All the best.

Looking to network and learn about co-op housing/potential be involved in setting one up.

Hi all, I'm a man in his mid-twenties looking for opportunities to explore and soon live within a housing co-op. I'm currently working for an environmental charity in London and would like to continue working there. I'm aware of groups like radical routes and others. But i'm looking to explore living within a co-op over the next few years. I'm a social smoker with no pets and no partners. Looking to live in a co-op and work at the same time. Looking for social co-op and to eventually develop value added products to contribute to the co-op itself. Thanks David

Eco-village in France looking for interested persons

Hi, We are a family of four, planning to turn our 20-acre smallholding in beautiful France, into a small eco-village community. Shareholders would have their own homes on the site and contribute to the development and sustainability of the project by working with other members on the land, buildings and other projects. The property is located in the Charente department of France and is 30 minutes from Limoges airport. Potential members will need to demonstrate specific personal qualities and assets to bring to the project, these would include, kindness to others, a good sense of humour, a sense of adventure, a desire to live a life where helping and working alongside others for the greater good of the community is a top priority. Practical skills, (ecological building, animal husbandry, farming etc.) that are beneficial to the community as a whole are also of great importance. We have no interest in "free love" and we do not have any religious, spiritual or other beliefs or ideals. Simply put, we want a simpler, better way of living that is as self-sustainable as possible, without excess and waste, where everyone helps one another, without judgment, or prejudice, working for the greater good of the community as a whole. If this sounds like the kind of place you would like to call home and you're interested in learning more, please email us in the first instance at: lesammons16@gmail.com We look forward to hearing from you.

Looking for land to purchase (if price very low) in the Ariege (woodland/ semi-forest preferred) ASAP

*** If ANYONE has ANYTHING USEFUL for me, PLEASE contact me!*** I'm looking for some space to live (as in, to buy) and to build an eco-cabane (for my own use), and to live as a Herb-Witch in a wild, wooded place (I'm also thinking of making music and simple silver-and-crystal jewellery, and taking up handicrafts - sewing, crochet, etc.), and to create a sort of forest-garden and keep some animals (goats, horses, chickens etc) on the land in a Wholistic and Biodynamic manner. Access to a spring for a water supply nearby would be really good. I would prefer a place that has a pre-exisiting building as part of the land, and big places (ie. old farmhouses, etc.) would be seriously considered, as there's a fairly high chance of my parents and other relatives wanting to move along as well - large amounts of land (ie. 10 hectares or above) preferred. (I'm personally content with a cabane in the woods and access to herbs, spring water and the wilderness - so long as I can get internet access fairly often). As for a price for the land - please say how low you can offer! Some words that go a degree of distance to describe me: Wild, Witch, herbs, nourishing, loving, intense, connected, Wise Woman, organic, homemade, musical, sensitive, quick, dowser, barefoot, naked-dancing-in-the-rain, sunbathing, moon-bathing, talks to the plants, singing, Crystals, energies-of-the-land, song-writer, poetess, horse-lover, stargazer... Please contact me if you have land available or know someone who does, or know someone who could help me to clarify things- my email is rfsk7b@gmail.com.

multi skilled craftswoman looking for a spot in the southwest

Hi, I'm Jana, 36, and I'm looking for a quiet, rural place somewhere between North Dorset and north Somerset. A room/cabin/static caravan/quirky other dwelling on a farm or a smallholding, to put my feet, hands and heart into. I'd love to help a veg garden grow (got little flakes of experience with biodynamics and a massive interest in permaculture), put in fencing, prune apple trees (know quite well how to do that), paint, mow, maybe learn to handle sheep or alpacas, if they're there, as one of my greatest passions is working with fibres, turning them into beautiful threads, and, given the space and time, knit, weave or crochet them into things to wear or look at. I'm well into healthy food, make my own ferments, collect summer flowers for winter teas, forage quite a lot at times and like to share what I know and learn what I don't know yet. So.. if you know someone wanting a hand or two for a few days a week plus a bit of rent in exchange for a rooting spot for me, please get in touch. Thanx a lot :) Jana

Mature Couple, required over winter southern Bulgaria

Hi There, I’m looking for a mature, trustworthy, capable couple to look after 1 cat & 1 dog (small & friendly) for 3 months from Nov maybe longer. House is in a small village plenty of shops nearby but nearest town is 30 km so (there a daily bus) There’s a small market every Tuesday. There are some English people here but It is quite remote if you don’t speak the language especially in winter, hence why it’s more suitable for a couple. My house is still in process of renovation but all major works are done and it’s comfortable. Ideal maybe for someone looking to buy in Bulgaria to get to know the culture and lifestyle, or anyone who might just want a break from rat race. Please contact me with any questions you might have. Have a nice day & thanks for reading this.

Solutions to a problem? try Co ctreationists like us!!

Co creationists Have you ever needed someone that doesn’t necessarily want to do things the way you do, but are highly motivated to help you achieve your goals anyway, at no cost to you! Sounds too good to be true? Well that depends on what you’re trying to achieve As co creationists our aim is to offer a timely solution to the duopolistic cycle of owning or renting properties that sets people apart, encourages isolation, separateness and loneliness as a competitive means of existence where statistically near zero community co-operation exists. We believe that a new era is being birthed where belonging, connectedness and shared values are proving that we have more to gain in common than we can ever have in competition There are vast numbers of people in the UK and worldwide that fall way outside of the current statistical figures which are either grossly misleading or give governments and councils some ammunition come election time to brandish the usual fear tactics followed by promised solutions that continually fail year after year As co creationists we do not subscribe to any nationwide solutions, it is blindingly obvious that nationwide attempts indeed worldwide attempts have failed miserably and only perpetuate the continued mantra of consume at all costs whilst propping up a crumbling system that only serves the go betweens that have turned the exploitative “fees and charges” culture into an art form. We decided some time ago to step outside this system and have been seeking a less stressful lifestyle that we feel will strike a chord with like minded people! Our ideal scenario as creationists is to help you to achieve your aims, whilst helping us to achieve ours “if you’re looking for us, we’re probably looking for you” We are Peppa and Christopher Tolley, early 60’s Builder, therapist, gardening, cooking, animal care, designer, creationists, professional guardian/house sitters. We are experienced, mature, responsible, extremely eco conscious with many more valuable attributes than listed. We would love to create with you, if you are building a new dream then we could be the solution you are looking for, we would seek as reward a parcel of land (with or without existing building/accommodation, which would only be ours for the time that we are there, we arrive with nothing and leave with nothing!! If this corresponds with your way of thinking then please contact us to explore the further possibilities. There appear to be no agencies or groups that introduce like Minded individuals in the manner described above and yet if we are ready to make this move, then surely there are others wishing to pursue these ideals! Please contact us at chris_tolley80@hotmail.com

Place to Live

Hi all, we are early 50's vegan couple with 2 dogs who will be available to rent or work for rent on a mutually suitable Project.We are financially stable so can support ourselves but would love to learn more about off grid sustainable living that is environmentally as well as ethically noble. Where ? Let the wind be the guide ! Really flexible, not afraid of giving it a go anywhere. We would like to live amongst people & animals where all can trust & benefit. Ideally we would have a private house/yurt/lodge or cabin which we can either pay rent for or work to cover cost of. Love the idea of communal life & believe it works best when relationships have grown. We are both physically fit, neither of us are afraid of graft. Our skills are in general building work, ground maintenance, insulation, office skills, proof reading. Any challenge is worth consideration if the cause is good. We enjoy music, can knock a tune out ok when the wind blows in the right way. We have travelled extensively and lived abroad. We feel we do not belong in mainstream society, so are seeking alternatives. We will be ready from November 2017. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who may have idea's to discuss. Regards colin

Resident Volunteer Opportunity

Unstone Grange is a rambling old house and retreat centre, set in 5 acres of beautiful gardens, and surrounded by lovely Derbyshire countryside. The Unstone Grange Trust is a Charity and our mission is to support and maintain Unstone Grange as a beautiful place where people come together to take another step on their life path. We make the space available to a wide variety of groups under the umbrella of personal and spiritual growth. We have no doctrine other than to celebrate the diversity of our lives and to encourage others to live consciously on the path of their choice We are currently looking for an additional resident volunteer to help care for the buildings, the gardens, and the various groups that gather here . We need dynamic, grounded practical people to join us working in a loosely managed structure, where the focus is being able to work in a self motivated and self responsible way but also as part of the existing team. We have fortnightly team meetings to discuss jobs, plan diaries and any other issues arising. You would need to be flexible and practical, work varies. We are responsible for property maintainance from cleaning to roofing(although do employ outside contractors for some jobs) and grounds management from grass cutting to vegetable growing. So ideally you would have property maintenance and building skills, or experienced in DIY. An interest in organic gardening would be a plus, as would mechanical skills oh and a good sense of humour!. On a personal level, some awareness of the issues of communal living would be an advantage, as would the desire to confront your own personal growth and development. We are not an intentional community as such but are developing our own ideas of living together. We share occasional meals and some jobs and also recognise the importance of personal space. In return for a beautiful place to live we ask 16 hours work a week, plus being on site for groups at weekends on a flexible rota basic. Accommodation would a large sunny upstairs room with a great view and own fireplace. Bathroom and kitchen shared. You would be free of all bills except personal ones such as telephone, transport and food. Having said that we do try and grow our own fruit and vegetables in our large organic garden and 80ft polytunnel and have apples, pears and plums in the orchard. You would need an outside income to meet your personal monetary needs as there is no paid employment on site and signing on is not possible from here. However we are very close with good transport links to the town of Chesterfield and the city of Sheffield. Please note this is not a woofing venue; we are looking at a longer-term arrangement. To get an idea of Unstone Grange from the perspective of the groups who use the centre for retreats etc., you could have a look at our website (www.unstonegrange.co.uk). If you think you might be interested in becoming a resident volunteer here, and would like to find out who is currently engaged with the project, and a bit more about how the place works, please drop us a line through the Diggers and Dreamers website, and tell us a little about yourself.

Looking to rent a small house in Bulgaria

I have seen a few notices on here advertising rental properties in Bulgaria and I was wondering if anyone has a small house in a semi rural area which I could rent for at least a year. It would need to be pet friendly as I have a dog and have good wi-fi as I'm currently enrolled in an online university course. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have via email, so please feel free to contact me if you have a property of interest.
