Mike and I live on a lovely quiet pond west of Boston - we are trying to build a small park on our land and a vegetable garden - we are in a wooded, rural area, but only 3 hours from New York, 1 hour from Boston and l/2 hour from Worcester. We have one cat - mostly outdoor. We are both vegans and Mike is an oil-free vegan. Our house is on two levels and has five bedrooms and two baths, 2 fireplaces and an outdoor firepit down by the Pond - good swimming and fishing in summer. We are five miles from the nearest store and library, but have bikes to lend out and can offer lifts. We are looking for people to help build the park, e.g. clear the brush and cut up trees and help with the gardens and general house cleaning. We have wi-fi and cable tv and a canoe and 2 kyaks, a paddle boat and fishing poles.The fall colors are wonderful and the spring is simply beautiful. The summer is warm but we can cool off swimming in the pond. We are looking forward to winter and ice fishing and ice skating on the pond. There are snow shoes and ice skates and sleds here to enjoy the weather and lots of wood to cut up and stack.
