We are full for 2017 - Thank you!

The best of both worlds, we are just one kilometer to the city bus for journeys into Winnipeg, but still enjoy the serenity of the country on our 5 hectare acre organic farm, nestled between the LaSalle and Red Rivers.

Come help with our intensive market garden, our sheep and our small chicken flock. We take our produce to Manitoba's largest farmers' market, 5 minutes from our home, and run a small CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Learn how we inter-connect greenhousing and high tunnels, permaculture, chicken tractors, composting and small-scale production, to be a self-sustaining family farm. Our homeschooling family enjoys good conversations over meals that are organic, often vegetarian and gluten-free. When we eat meat, we only buy from sustainable sources. Our house is geo-thermally heated, and we aim to be energy efficient and natural, using clay painted walls, broken tile flooring, and natural elements. It's all a work in progress, with lots to do, but in a pleasant, low-key atmosphere. We ask for 6 hours of work per day, 5 days per week. On your own time, you can go into the city, or walk through the 76 acre nature preserve that runs alongside our property. Accommodation is a clean trailer, off the ground and in good condition, though you are always welcome in the house. Our energy compass is pointed away from fossil fuels, and we love to talk about sustainability, permaculture and organic issues. Wed appreciate minimum stays of two weeks.
