Welcome! Let us tell you a little about ourselves! Five years ago, both of us were on a new direction in our life. We connected on a Jean Houston course: Passion for the Possible.
I don’t think either of us was looking for as much as we received- but we are lucky. My husband is from England and I am from Ontario. In a wonderful act of trust, Philip moved to Canada. We have decided to commit to a piece of land between Kingston and Brockville. When I say a piece, I really mean a 110 acre property! Crazy choice for a small-space loving Brit and a city dwelling Ontario lass, but hey- we are obviously up for a challenge!
We are moving into the most rewarding and challenging part of our year- the spring. Yesterday we marked out the land for the garden.
For the record: I believe in: GO BIG OR GO HOME! Philip, on the other hand, believes in small rational steps. So, when I marked a 20 meter square piece of land for our garden in contrast to the sensible 8 meters suggested by our neighbour, my wonderful husband sighed and agreed. Time will tell what will happen!
In a few weeks we will be developing three bee hives from the queen to the hive. We are supported by a wonderful mentor.
This blog is our opportunity to share our discoveries and challenges- to grow with you.
My husband is a lover of the natural world. A son of professional photographers in England, he connects with spirit and nature through photography. I love gardening, teaching , painting and writing, and share his passion in the love of our land.
