I hope that the land will sell to the right people

I really hope that in NW Arkansas we can have a rural learning center and community.  Someone is very interested in buying this land for this purpose, and I pray that he will have the means to buy the land and ability to organize it into a wonderful place. Perhaps I will help. That would be a miracle if I could get a job helping create community. This is a job I have always dreamed about. I want to do that on our land near Kingston, but I can help with other communities as well.

I hope to give you some good news in the near future that this land has sold. And, I hope that I will be able to give you good news that in some way you can be involved in this if you want to be.

With times the way they are, this might be a haven for people who need to get out of the city, and a training place to teach people how to grow food in green houses as well as many other things.

It is my dream that I can locate other properties that would be great for community as well as reasonably priced. I am getting ready to promote Bob Jordan’s property on Hill St. in Fayetteville.

I want to get my hopes up about this potential buyer–that he will buy the land very soon.

More people are looking–so come look and make a decision:)

Wow! This is exciting. There is at least one person who is very serious about looking into buying the land. He had someone look at the land for him, since he lives out of town–and so far he thinks it could be the right place for a vision similar to what I have presented. He will be looking at the land soon. The owner is excited to hear that maybe this land could be sold to someone who might use it for a learning center,  community, retreat, greenhouses and more.

Someone else went to look but thought it was too far away–but she thought it was a great place and she’ll be spreading the word. Another person called today and seemed serious. I have been sending out messages to people via my newsletter. Gladys Tiffany, president of Omni Center for Peace, Justice and Ecology sent out my newsletter to a very large mailing list. I’ve told people like April Ambrose who is a major networker in the sustainable field. I was hoping that this might go viral–and I am seeing a lot of activity.

It is very fulfilling for me to spread the word about this beautiful land. Really, I don’t want this land to be sold–I want someone to steward this land for purposes that are for the betterment of man kind. Yes, they will exchange money for the land–but they will treat this land with love and respect, and invite people to join them in doing same. Of course, included in this is helping people treat each other with love and respect as well.

I am getting excited about locating other land that I can share with people so that their dreams of community can come true. I am getting ready to promote a place on Hill Street in Fayetteville that is 5 bedroom, two bath on 1.2 acres in a quiet neighborhood with lots of parking. With a lot of TLC, this house would be an ideal city cooperative. Bob Jordan owns it and shares my vision that this could be a community place.

Someone is going to look at the land!

I am happy to say that someone is very interested in the property and I can’t wait to find out what he thinks! This is a person who is interested in creating community. I would be thrilled if he bought it.  Of course at this point I will keep all confidential–but just wanting you who are on the fence to know that if you want to check this property out before it is snapped up,  give me a call at 479-313-0414

could you imagine buying over 60 acres with a large well-built house for $2000 a month–lease to buy

over I am envisioning that a group of people could easily be room mates and be able to purchase this land which is 1/2 hour from Fayetteville near Winslow. Or, they could pool their funds and perhaps sublet the house until they are ready to move. The owner is willing to work with the right people to make this a possiblity.  Otherwise, the land is going to go into foreclosure, possibly at the end of June.

If I did not have my own land, I would be figuring out a way to pull this off. I hope you will read the description of this beautiful land which includes a storm shelter and the best well on the mountain. Maybe best of all, natural air conditioning with a breeze and a temperature that is usually 5 degrees cooler than Fayetteville. Contact Patricia at 479-313-0414

Some information about trails, blackberries and the ponds

From the owner:

There is one main trail that runs along the middle of the forest area, you could even drive a vehicle through it. There are also additonal smaller trails that were once used for logging. It is easy to walk around the forest area specially during the fall and winter or early spring before the wild blakberry briers are fully grown. There are many wild blakberries around, as well as some grapes. About the ponds..I have never tried swimming in them, as far as I know nobody around there swims in the ponds. I don’t know exactly the reason for that, but I think that most people are afraid of swiming in them. I know that the ponds have plenty of fish, though.
