Contest closes in

What are you doing
next summer?

You may be eager to find out if you’re born to toil the soil. Or perhaps the creative sort, looking to find flow in a rural retreat.

Would you like to spend next season living on a beautiful 100-acre organic farm where you can slow down, build things, have fun, create, work hard, grow in many ways, learn stuff, get tired, find time, eat well, be inspired and connect with the simple things in life?

Are you yearning to breathe, move, dig, stretch, plant, sweat, paint, make music, write, weed your garden, get lost, and find one of your many selves?

You might really like it here.

You’ll have use of the greenhouse, one acre personal organic garden of incredible tilled, stone-free soil beside a spring-fed pond. You can even have your own heritage hens to look after, unless you prefer a farm fresh dozen eggs every week from our girls. Your stay will run from Victoria Day weekend through to Labour Day (Value over $1800.00).

You’ll also win our hearts for helping preserve Wholearth.
