    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are LGBT friendly family with children in French immersion, and basic conversational language skills in several languages. Our professional and academic work includes North American food and farming systems (soils and agroecology) as well as First Nations governance and territorial authority (indigenous laws and governance). Travelers will share meals with us that are harvested from our farm and prepared in regional West Coast style. Learning on the farm will include identification of a wide variety of cultivated specialty vegetables, and general small farm and market garden skills.
