    Our farm is located in a beautiful part of the world, with many small lakes nearby and lots of opportunity to hike through the forest. We make bi-weekly trips to Saskatoon, which is about 2 hours away.

    We need help this year with building a greenhouse which will also be home to a solar panel array as well as a wvo processing and energy generating plant. We will also be constructing a shop. As far as gardens go, we will be converting one area to permaculture this year.
