Additional Information

Starting at ground zero this property has so much potential. I purchased it last year and realize I need help. There is a 100' greenhouse with sheds tools, water and beautiful views.

I have started meditation gardens of medicinal herbs, edible flowers, and vegetables.  I created a camping opportunity and keep the lawns mowed and gardens weeded. Also I have a pottery studio with a gallery space where I produce and teach. I am also a massage therapist.

I am a dreamer. So much more can happen with the right folk!
