Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband and I are retired, starting to travel in our small travel van. We believe in energy conservation. We keep honeybees and we built our own passive solar timber frame home in Connecticut. Our 20 acre property includes a stream, fields, woods and a vegetable garden plot leased by a CSA farmer family.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I had a career helping schools and municipalities save energy. Since retirement, I enjoy crafts and lap swimming. My husband had a 33 year career as a practising licensed arborist, and knows a lot about trees, pruning, removal and tree diseases. In 2017, Allan lost his right hand in a traumatic wood processor machine accident. Now he is making furniture and keeps almost 20 hives of bees.

We have one well mannered, very smart Australian Shepherd dog, and many honey bees.

Great guests!

We did not have a lot of time, but enjoyed hosting and visiting with nancywinshippoole. Hopefully they will come again when we are not so busy and they can stay longer.
