    Description

    Hello All You Amazing People out there,

    We are a family of three (Son is 2.5 years). We are homesteading in rural British Columbia Canada. This season is our third year running an Organic Seed Potato Farm. We recently moved onto forested land we purchased before our son was born. The North Kootenay Lake has been home to us for 6 years.

    We are passionate about land stewardship, growing our own food, supporting the growth of a vibrant food secure region, medicinal mushrooms and wild foraging, self reliance, off-grid living, natural health and well-being.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a beautiful wild part of BC with many epic mountain hikes and lake adventures to be enjoyed. We have knowledge of wild foods and medicines, off-grid living, and food preserving.
    We are happy to share the knowledge and experience we have had with wild foods and medicines, growing organically and living off-grid.
