  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We are a community of inspired, clear-minded individuals creating a relational-centred, sustainable lifestyle that we have found naturally catalyzes the evolution of human consciousness. We are enabling the old paradigm to fade away by not fighting against life as it is.

    Our off-grid organic farm is located on pristine 23-acre property, 15 minutes West of Nelson, in the West Kootenays, British Columbia. We operate out of an 1800 sq. ft, geo-solar Earthship. We have organic community gardens and an orchard featuring 30-inch insulated raised beds.

    Not only do we provide an environment to work with plants, but our intention is also to provide an opportunity for volunteers to have a hands-on experience of service in a community setting. We practice non-violent communication and emotional intelligence on a daily basis.

    We provide a simple, quality, organic, mostly vegetarian diet, some of which comes from our gardens and greenhouse.

    Things to do in the area include hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and skiing. The West Kootenays offer a rich alternative culture, many amazing musicians and performers, arts and social events.

    How to get here:
    - Rideshares - Kootenay, Kijiji, Craigslist, Poparide
    - Fly - airport in Castlegar
    - Bus from Vancouver (fueled by vegetable oil!) : search Mountain Man Mike Bus

    Even though we grow a wide range of nutrient-dense organic vegetables and microgreens, the primary crop that brings us the most fulfillment is the evolution of human consciousness. This crop we cultivate daily through our choice of presence with our feelings and perceptions. We are learning to relax into uncomfortable feelings and own the projections that often stem from these feelings.

    We provide healthy lifestyle choices and limit choices that are less supportive of nourishing the inspired evolution of consciousness. We intend to fully inhabit our lives in all of its beauty and challenges. We choose not to medicate our uncomfortable feelings but rather to develop our capacities to fully welcome all of the learning that comes through honestly facing all that is inside of us. We cultivate presence, awareness and a sincere interest in our own self-discovery.

    Our lifestyle supports presence with ourselves through practices of Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation, Emotional Intelligence as well as sharing meaningful work together that also creates greater sustainability and food security. We believe that we are rapidly coming into a time on our Earth where our capacity for presence with enormous change, as well as the ability to provide for ourselves, will be essential.

    We provide a smoke, drug and alcohol-free environment.

    People come here not just to learn about sustainability and organic food production. People are encouraged to learn how to relax into all of what they are feeling, are supported by example and by in-house workshops to welcome all that they feel and learn through a more fully embodied life experience.

    When people come here, they are choosing for the time that they are here to experiment with attending to all of what is inside of them, this means refraining from avoiding or medicating what arises from within. Through this process, we have found that people make deeper contact with their own simple, magical nature that guides them.

    Nearby Nelson is a great base to explore the lakes, mountains and rivers of the surrounding area. The west arm of the Kootenay Lake flows past Nelson with several dams just below Nelson. The big orange bridge (known locally as BOB) is a local icon connecting the north shore to Nelson. Lakeside Park is a mix of grass and shade trees and a sandy beach.

    We ask all foreign volunteers to have health insurance for the duration of their stay with us.
