  • Description


    Situated on an acre within town limits between the Rockies and the Cariboo Mountains, we have a busy household with 4 adults and a baby arriving midsummer. We make our own soap, jelly, and preserves, as well as dabbling in wildcrafting with locally sourced product. We are often in the woods for an afternoon or even a day enjoying the mountains and gathering / harvesting the bounty around us. We are developing a large garden and greenhouse in our yard as well as continuing our aquaponic experimentation.
