In 2017, we moved to beautiful Mnidoo Mnising (Manitoulin Island). Leaving behind our busy lifestyles we found some land that offered us the opportunity to simplify our lives, to live off-grid while establishing roots and creating community. This was a conscious decision to live in close relationship with the land that sustains us. In doing so it has made us aware of how much more connected we feel not only to the land, but also to ourselves and each other. Restoring our connection to the land has also helped us to heal and we want to offer opportunities for others so that they can begin to restore a sense of connection to the natural world.
