Are you looking for a new way of life? Would you like to be a part of something bigger than yourself? We are a artisan food company, permaculture food forest, farm stay guest house and collaborative community in Kamloops BC, Canada.

The original Huxley farmstead is a secluded, natural, riverside acreage, right in the City of Kamloops. We grow herbs, edible flowers, fruit, nuts, berries, squashes, heritage, wild settler and indigenous GREENS in our food forests, greenhouse and urban gardens. Our focus combines culinary-tourism with ethical omnivorous whole foods, nutritional healing, wild indigenous plants, delicious flavours & easy to prepare recipes.

Our Motto: Happy Healthy People on a Happy Healthy Planet is a daily focus.

We are welcoming new visitors who would like to sign on for a six week introductory farm stay and learn about eco life in a new way and share in our culinary adventures!

Collaborative visitors engage as full immersion members of our intentional community, learning about nutritional healing, ethical omnivorism, permaculture, ethnobotany, culinary projects, fermenting, jam making, drying herbs, helping in our home kitchen, house and gardens to keep everything clean, organized and running smoothly. If you have ever wondered about being on a permaculture farm and living in a conscious community this experience may be perfect for you!

The food here is amazing! Culinary Abundance. All community visitors are responsible for a contribution towards ethical groceries, (minimum $10 daily donation /$420 for a six week stay). A shared tent or tipi bedroom, gourmet meals, and all basic life necessities (bedding, furniture, toiletries, shared home, utilities, phone, wireless), pool, hot tub, trampoline, musical instruments will be provided for you during your stay in exchange for the gift of your time invested in building a beautiful shared life together with love. Those who fit this puzzle perfectly are welcome to continue with us indefinitely...if it's not a good fit - no worries, you've paid for a short hostel stay with us and can continue on your way.

"Work is Love made visible" is our active daily meditation. We are fully engaged in co-creating a sustainable shared life together, for ourselves and our shared earth. We reuse, recycle, repurpose, repair and remake everything. Nearly every object in our life is a gift or someone else's refuse. We walk gently on the earth, invest ethically in what is most important and live life differently, outside the box. Proud to be hippies, clothing optional pool deck. No smokers, vapers or synthetic fragrances please. Occasional alcohol or marijuana use is fine but no everyday users please. We work hard to eliminate cycles of addiction here and be presently enjoying the NOW. Mostly chemical & plastic free environment. We clean with baking soda, vinegar and essential oils, and our bath products come from the health food store or are handmade.

Please contact us by telephone (landline only - no cell, skype, whatsap or text etc); or facebook messenger - send a message to learn more and to access a phone number to call for a personal interview to see if this life is the right fit for you!

We challenge ourselves and all our visitors to honor and practice...

ďThe Four Agreements
1. Be impeccable with your word.
2. Donít take anything personally.
3. Donít make assumptions.
4. Always do your best. Ē
Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom.

Gorgeous natural, meditative environment, 10 mins from downtown, 5 mins to the airport. All major city amenities with private natural organic permaculture food forest gardens, clothing optional, copper crystal alkaline swimming pool, chlorine free mineral hot tub, trampoline, slack-line, piano, drum-kit and tons of musical instruments.

We have a small dog named Bella (hypoallergenic), Sophia our free range bunny. a lovely wandering hen named Beyonce who has successfully raised the third generation of Real Canadian Climbing Chicken. They are rewilded hens who live in trees, climb like parrots and free range forage for food.

This is an active, entirely not for profit, URBAN permaculture food forest farm, led by a family of 4, with regular shifting and new people flowing in and out. We experience all the normal intensity of a big family - kids are 15, 17, 19 and 21 (Only the two youngest live at home full time) with often 2 to 12 other conscious adults, visitors and guests sharing the main house, tents, treehouse, tipi and cottage on our land. Come live, grow and play with us a while.
