    Is this room still available for rent? And would I be allowed to live there with my four year old daughter? How long is the agreement to last? I would love to be part of your community and projects there, and I realize that starting on a trial basis is a good way to build a foundation. Please let me know if this or any other room is still available. I can wait for an opening if necessary. Thank you very much.

  • Hi,

    I sent you a message by way of your “Contact” Button at the top of the page several days ago and checked the box to receive a copy of the message in my email box, but have neither had a response from you, nor have I received a copy of the message in my mailbox…

    My girlfriend and I are planning to visit Earthaven on May 11 and are very interested in seeing this apartment and also would like to know it’s current status is, whether it is still rented and if so, whether the current tenant has plans to move out at any future time.

    We are both excited about visiting Earthaven and are both wondering why we have not yet received a response to our enquiry???

    "Lee conveys the importance of end of life planning with humor and wisdom. Together our community group was able to thoughtfully explore these decisions we tend to avoid. The sense of relief many of us felt at the end of the day was palpable. What a gift for our friends and families as we take the burden of hard decisions off their shoulders by ensuring our wishes are known ahead of time! So grateful."
