  • Description


    We are a family of 4. We live in a little town just outside of Nelson b.c called winlaw. We live right on the Slocan River where we paddle board, canoe and swim on the hot days of summer. We also often ride our bikes on the old rail road tracks that go from one end of the valley to the other. We have 5 acres with many gardens, fruit trees, chickens, 2 dogs and a cat.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have an amazing community that has an alternative way of Living! Growing our own organic food and living off the land is very important to the people here. Music is played daily in our home and at our local restaurants that is a 2 min drive or 10 min bike ride away. My husband and I both grew up in this area and know all the special places in the moutains where you can see all sorts of wild life, pick huckleberries and hunt for wild mushrooms. It’s wild and free. Planet winlaw!
