Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I've happily made my home in rural Northeast Missouri at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage since 1999 (no one is more surprised than I!). My husband Kurt Kessner and I built our strawbale home in (phone number hidden), and in 2007 decided to build an Inn to encourage and enable others to experience a sustainable life firsthand. We designed and built the Mercantile ourselves (with the help of friends) of recycled and/or renewable materials. Life is busy but good - star-filled skies, flower-filled prairies and friend-filled days make Dancing Rabbit a very special place indeed. We hope you come visit!
On a more personal note: I've never met a book I didn't like; my overflowing collection is housed - and for sale - in the Mercantile. Our Inn is dog-friendly because we adore dogs. I take great delight in feeding people, and especially love to bake. I love singing and figuring out harmonies with friends.
