  • Description


    We have lots of projects on the go: farm school, gardening, house fix up, regenerative grazing, permaculture projects.

    Our Farm: Ross and Mary farm 200 acres near Glencoe, Ontario which is half way between Toronto and Windsor/Detroit in the Thames River watershed. To get to here, book a ticket with VIA trains to Glencoe. We'll pick you up. We live ten minutes away from the Glencoe train station. Please look at our calendar to see if your travel plans coincide with our months of need.

    Growing evidence shows that managing animals for soil health and regenerating pastures is one of the most important climate change strategies. To fix carbon on our farm, we care for cattle and we eat our pasture-raised meat.

    This is a place for you to explore two hundred acres of nature at your back door. This is a place to cool out, practice yoga, meditate or do gardening in the evening.

    We are involved in the community and there are local projects to help with too.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Southwestern Ontario is a very special part of Canada. We are halfway between Toronto and Detroit City. The geography is flat and the main activity is conventional cropping of corn and soya beans. There is LOTS of rural culture here! This is Canada! Lots of music, church suppers, social activities, and small town celebrations.

    With COVID19 and the locking down of our children, we would like to figure out how to develop our farm into a Forest School. I have done some preparatory work but need an Executive Assistant who would do the research and development. Tasks include: reaching out to the Forest School and Waldorf education communities; determining what kind of programming could work; talking to local teachers and principals; reaching to to homeschool families to discover their needs; conducting outdoor learning experiences on-farm for small groups of children; preparing a business plan that includes a social media plan and community outreach.

    This is no small task but it is a great opportunity for the right person who is emerging from teacher's college or taking a break from teaching. Also a good fit for any social entrepreneur who loves kids and nature. Or anyone who is concerned about addressing the growing mental health crisis.

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    Mary has a Teaching English as a Foreign Language diploma and can offer a total English immersion experience with coaching in speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, grammar, listening. English learners, if motivated, share their exercises with Mary in the evening so she can help them with their formal program. More typically, she corrects pronunciation and explains the dreaded phrasal verbs! Mary and Ross include their worker guests in many family social activities so be prepared to meet many people and speak, speak, speak.

  • Hébergement


    The house has one guest room. There is a full kitchen and the house could be developed into a Forest School indoor class room. The house is 6 kilometres from the village of Glencoe and a one-hour drive from the city of London.

    Possibilité d’accueillir les digital nomads

    Our Internet is shared across the farm, so it is a bit dodgy and you won't have first dibs. When the weather is poor, service is spotty. It's pretty good for rural Canada, but service in the city is better.
