    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Over the years we ourselves have traveled a lot vising most of Central and South America and of course Europe before immigrating to Canada in 1979. Since we are both self employed and thought, we have loads of personal life experience
    to share, creating what you will see with us, on an "outside the box" concept and vision, a never ending "learning curve"

    We are halfway between Osoyoos and Rock Creek, above Anarchist Summit, is a 500 acre mountaintop nature reserve.

    Our alternate ECO straw bale design and construction concept and methods is a creative work in progress. To date many international working travelers, became part of our great vision. Off grid, with solar power only, recycled building components, every guest was fascinated about the cozy feel in our different buildings. The shared meals have allowed great conversations and friendships to develop. Do come and stay with us, as long you'd like, as well bring your friends.
    We will need many creative and willing hands to become part of our unusual project. As it stands, every day we all have learned something new, a never ending "Learning Curve" and have fun with "Murphy's Law" daily rules, challenges..
