House-Sitting

From May 2014 through April 2015 we are looking for opportunities to work and travel in unconventional ways, like house sitting and pet-sitting. In some situations, payment is not necessarily required- free rent may be all we need. Please tell us if you- or someone you know- may be interested. We'd consider going anywhere in the country or world, but here are some specific times and places where we'd especially like to house sit:
-late May, late June: Salem/Portland
-late August/September/early October: France
-late December/February: Hawaii

Connections and Ideas

Our goal is to grow our blog, Simply Intentional, by visiting and reporting about organizations, communities, and people who are living simply, creatively, sustainably, and/or unconventionally. Your recommendations of people to interview or places to visit will point us in the right direction (think: urban farms, non-profit cafes, creative community centers, educational retreat facilities, off-the-grid families, and intentional co-housing communities).

If you could take a minute right now and shoot us an e-mail (jeddandmichelle@gmail.com) with a short list off the top of your head, that would be a great start!
