  • Description

    Description

    We will be working hard all summer to have our Earthship ready for this coming cold season.

    Our family of 4 lives on the side Willowbank Mountain in the Bleaberry valley near Golden in beautiful British Columbia!

    We are on an off grid adventure. For the last 4 years we have loved living in our hand built yurt. In the summer of 2016 we started tackling the building of an Earthship to be our forever home.

    We are focused on finding joy and purpose in life. We love sharing experiences with people and love the idea of doing things as a community!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    During our project we will be hoping to expose people to different alternative building styles and off grid solutions.

    If you are thinking of living off grid in any capacity we are sure there is something you can learn!

    Also we love the idea of a rich community on our property. We currently have our family of 4, my Dad, another family of 3 and a couple living in a wall tent as residents of Inshallah. It's awesome!

    Accommodation

    We can only offer a very basic accommodation situation.

    In the summer we have tent sites with outside toilets and showers and a couple camper vans for people to sleep in who don’t have their own tenting gear.

    As we are completely off grid there is no normal power (leave your air conditioner and curling iron at home please! Ha!!), no regular running water (especially hot! :-)), etc.....
    However we now have limited Wifi access.

    What we do have is amazing views, wonderful quiet, amazing starry skies, TONS of world class activities in our area, campfires, music and NATURE!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Golden is known for it's outdoor activities.
    Within an hour of Golden you will find most any outdoor activity you desire and chances are it will be "world class".
    Biking, climbing, kayaking, rafting, paragliding, hang gliding, hiking, backcountry huts, camping, etc.... It's all right here!

    Golden itself is a small town with all the basic amenities. It has plenty of great local restaurants and cafes, a decent night life. It even has a a bowling alley and a movie theatre. Wow!

    Calgary AB is the closest main centre.
