    Description

    *** Mutual understanding around appropriate safety measures required (ie. self-monitoring, limiting social gatherings, washing hands and sanitizing when in/after being in public places, etc...)***

We are active outdoors on the lake or hiking when not working and enjoy being social and hosting friends and family for meals and games.

    Learn about permaculture gardening and farming practices with us as we implement new systems on the farm. The Okanagan has many recreational activities such as lakes, mountains, trails as well as an amazing area to visit local farms, wineries and cideries. Vernon is a great place to live and visit with beautiful scenery, local markets and events, and an amazing local food community.
