This developing ecovillage community is inviting you to spend time with us.
If you like to be outdoors, spend time enjoying untouched nature and living close to the elements, then this is the right place for you.
We are located in the vast beautiful Prairie landscape, surrounded by trees, fields and open skies.
The huge inland ocean, Lake Winnipeg with its shallow waters invites you for swimming over the summer.
We are in the process of building an off grid village. We are a group of families and single people between 25 and 52 years old who are building to live a dream beyond a 9 to five workday week, So we will be able to live on the land, run our own small businesses, grow our own food and host cultural, educational and natural building events.
We have yurts and temporary summer homes on the property.
We are building an earthship as a first real self sustainable home.
We are now looking for volunteers to help us continue build the Earthship starting May 15th 2019!
The earthships tire wall is now 7 courses high in most places. First thing in the spring will be the continuation of the tire wall up to 10 courses, further placement of insulation, adobe packout, bond beam,,,
