  • Description


    Hello! 🌞

    We are a family living in a spacious home that was once a dairy factory and is now a palace (kind of). We have a big vegetable garden, an orchard full of fruit trees, a big lake that’s perfect for canoeing and nice for a swim (but its very salty), a variety of animals both big and small, and a home that will make you feel welcome.

    We are a happy crew who like to be productive and creative, and we love having people stay who share these values. We also enjoy cooking together and sharing meals often, our kitchen is always the busiest room in the house.

    Priorities at this time of year include (but not limited to)
    ~Working on the vegetable garden
    ~Cooking food and maintaining a functional kitchen
    ~Keeping the animals fed + entertained + loved
    ~Help with never ending house renovations
    ~Organising the costume and craft rooms
    ~An abundance of creative DIY projects.
    ~Lake forshore cleanup
    ~Harvesting fruit and veggies 🍅 🍏🥦🥕
    ~Preserving the fruits N veg

    We look forward to connecting with you!

    ~~~~ Sometimes the house is busy and full of people and activities, other times it is quiet with only a few of us here. Both are lovely in their own way. It's constantly changing so you have to be prepared for both ~~~~~
