Hi Friends around the world ~

Know anyone looking to move to a wonderful, eclectic small town to live as ecologically-sustainable a life as possible in a small-town “urban” environment?  Please check out my home for sale:



Its values – in a nutshell:

IMG_5736.jpgZoned residential and commercial, blocks from the historic business/tourism district, this 2-bedroom, 1-bath home with detached studio was redesigned for winter passive solar gain, with sculptured adobe thermal mass for temperature stabilization, and modern insulation – for comfort and energy savings in all seasons.

The private gardens, designed for low maintenance and watered with rain from the steel roof and catchments, contain native and drought-resistant fruit and nut trees, grape vines, numerous herbs, and a full spring and summer of flowers, all on one-tenth acre.  Nooks and crannies in the garden provide seating in sun or shade every season.  The home, gardens, and kitchen also all support large gatherings.


I’ve lived in Silver City for ten years and love it for many, many things:

  • Wonderful weather.
  • Many “Top Ten” small town lists, i.e., for wilderness, outdoor recreation, retirees, arts, etc.
  • The only small town in the Southwest with a food coop; it also has a Farmers Market, Permaculture guild, herb store, community garden, community radio, and more.
  • Home prices were/still are modest.
