  • Description


    Welcome to our Eco Project! We are a young couple, our names are Lala and Faisal, and we recently got about an acre of land with a house in a valley in the Laurentian mountain range of Quebec. The area we live in is residential and agricultural, isolated with no cell phone connection or gas stations within a 30 mins drive. Self-sustainability has always been our vision and now we are on the journey to pursue our vision. We will be working to transform our current home into an more eco friendly house. Also, Faisal comes from a tradition of Yurt making which is why we started building one to use as a greenhouse. Our aspirations for it is to grow fresh, organic produce for our family as we have a baby on the way. We want to spread the knowledge of what you eat is what you are and the benefits of organic home grown produce!
