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.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
As a participant here you can be involved in construction projects, gardening, fruit, try your hand at glassmaking!, we have ongoing projects that require extra help. We eat very healthy, mostly organic, have an active, healthy lifestyle.
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.
Salt Spring Island is the largest and most populated of the Southern Gulf Islands cluster. Home to many artists, crafters, musicians, etc. There is a vibrant cultural and music scene here, 2 weekly summer markets, lots going on and lots to do. We are very close to the main village, Ganges.
