We can have very warm days too; do bring something for those days.

  • toothbrush, facecloth, towel, other toiletries


We have a communal outhouse, with washing station, and our new enclosed outdoor shower and sink for washing. Please be sure your shampoo and soap do not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, or any of it’s relatives, as the water from the shower is on a grey water system, and goes back into the land here. If you are unsure, there will be both shampoo and soap provided that you are welcome to use.

We have two ponds that you can take a dip in.

If you are an early morning riser, we have an outdoor kitchen, where you can make yourself a cup of tea or coffee.


The workshops all take place in the Upper Ottawa Valley, either at our farm in Golden Lake or at our property in  Whitney, both of  which are accessible by bus. The distance to drive is about 1.5 hrs from Ottawa and 4.5 hrs from Toronto or Montreal.


We’re flexible, mostly ovo-lacto vegetarian food but can accommodate vegans as well as most allergies. We encourage participation in clean up. We find a rich balance in happens at meals, through everyone’s eclectic taste and experience, nutritional information and political views, balanced by the simplicity of what’s coming out of the ground.
