Oshkello Family

Sephirah-Stacey and Craig Oshkello together helped birth The Living Tree Alliance in 2010, when they together wrote a business plan for the vision they shared.  Sephirah and Craig spent over a decade homesteading in Acworth, NH at Cold Pond Community Land Trust, before they moved to the Mad River Valley to grow  Living Tree Alliance.

In addition to working on Living Tree Alliance’s enrichment programs and co-housing development, they grow vegetables, chickens, sheep, and fertile soil. They have skills in community living that include conflict resolution, non-violent communication, resource sharing, and event planning.  

Their 2 children, Ayla '01 and Adyn '04 are the greatest joy of their life, and they enjoy spending time with them immersed in the beauty of Vermont.  Adyn is an avid baseball fan, and enjoys engaging in most sports including baseball, basketball, and skiing.  Ayla enjoys horseback riding, snowboarding, and traveling.
