Closing Time: Help us seal the deal on our new home!
Hello there! We are Ethan and Jenna. We've been together for almost 10 years and have made the choice to relocate to rural Vermont. It is our dream to live in a forested, more secluded area of Vermont where we can be stewards of the land, garden, and create a beautiful intentional life together (hopefully filled with chickens, native pollinator gardens, and a large quantity of raspberry bushes).

We both desire a life lived in closer harmony with nature. As much as we love Burlington, its time to start our new chapter in a place surrounded by the quiet solitude of the forest and the grounding presence of all things great and small.

Like a lot of people out there right now, we are putting all we've got into the down payment on our next home. This next chapter of our lives is a big change for us, but we couldn't be more excited about the prospect!

Giving is an incredible act of kindness and we hope you can open your hearts to help us obtain our dream. No amount is too small or too large. The fact that you're here reading this and considering a donation means a whole lot to us.

Like my Dad always said, every little bit helps. We are so grateful for your donation. A big thank you!
