    Hello friends!

    *** Update (September 15th) ***

    Hello there friend! If you happen to be available at the moment, we would love to chat about joining paths. A change of circumstances created an opening and an immediate need. We are hosting our 9th annual trail running race ("Run off the Grid") on September 28 and need some help with preparation, as well as on event day. Please send us a message if you're available and interested to take part in trail work, wood medals making, yard work, child care, event setup, ATV operating, or just want to experience Canadian wilderness at the peak of the Autumn colors...

    Thank you and looking forward to meeting you!


    We are an Off-Grid tourism destination on a quest for self-sufficiency. We operate year-round and focus on developing and integrating various sustainable practices, such as compost humanure, alternative building, operate with Solar power and growing organic food.
