    Description

    hi;
    we have a small organic sun-soaked farm on Salt Spring Island. We also have a glassblowing/glass recycling business which pays the bills. We moved here 5 yrs ago and have lots of infrastructure plans like cabins, an underground dwelling, huge greenhouse, etc. We also have a 10-year old, a nice gentle non-shedding dog, and a cat. I am a glassblower, etc., and Leanna is a marine biologist. We both dedicate our lives towards making a difference, and considering ecology. We have heritage fruit and nut orchards, large gardens, and through hard work, we have some resilience and food security.

    For accommodation we have a cozy cabin. We are building more cool places like tree-houses, a bath house & sauna, cabin suites, etc. as well. Meals are shared with us in our house, or you can have your own meals sometimes if you wish. We do have a scent-free house, so do not use scented laundry soap, scented shampoo, etc.
