ABOUT US

36Acresandamermaid (2).jpg
Hi! We are aspiring off-grid homesteaders.

In early 2018, I took a leap of faith and made the decision to follow my dream of land ownership by purchasing 36 acres of high desert land in the northeast corner of Arizona. 


My vision was to build off-grid, solar powered structures by hand using natural materials. I also wanted to develop the land with animals, bees, and other agricultural goods in the hopes of one day being able to provide camping and retreat space in service of women and children. This is one of the reasons for using ‘mermaid’ in the name because mermaids, among many other things, are known as being protectors of life and of women and children in some cultures. 


By the end of 2018, I found myself a single mother of four children after a decade of marriage, and as many can unfortunately relate, found myself struggling to get my finances back in alignment but still blessed nonetheless. 


Support from this campaign will go towards paying off the remaining balance on the land note. 


For our family, this land is more than just acreage. It is a ray of hope for new possibilities as my children and I forge forward, building upon a foundation of optimism for a new future. 


Please help us take our horse to the old town road, so that we can ride until we can’t anymore. Just kidding, we don't know how to ride horses yet. However, a portion of the donated funds will go towards road maintenance fees. :)


Any amount can help and would be greatly appreciated if this resonates with you as something into which you would like to sow. 


Even if you are unable to donate at this time, please come back often for updates and share with family and friends who may be interested in supporting our cause. We also invite you to visit our website to follow our progress as we embark on this journey.
