A model of resilience and regeneration

Imagine a farm that grows resilience… 

A model mixed-used regenerative farm with an integrated blend of pastures, food forests and gardens growing a variety of healthy food while increasing the vitality of the environment.

A community hub, education and retreat centre that serves as a gathering spot for people learning to live healthy, happy, resilient lives together. 

An experiment in regenerative culture that uses adaptive design and evidence-based decision-making to speed learning and responsiveness.

Starting from Ground Zero

We are starting a ground zero with this project. The property is about 40 acres of former clear-cut that has never been farmed before. Three-quarters of the property is rocky and hilly and a quarter is flat with marginal soil. Our plan is to apply the best of regenerative techniques to build the soil and heal the land.

Follow Our Journey

We’ll be sharing our adventures – the successes and the frustrations – as we go. You can follow along by checking back on this website or by following us on Twitter, Instagram, or our Facebook Page. For the daily blow-by-blow, sign on to our Slack Channel.

And if you’re on Pender, stop by anytime to say hi.
