Summer Progress

Summer Progress

Well to say it was a busy summer would be an understatement at best. Between trying to pull 60-70hr weeks at work (oh the glorious film world), I also came home on my time off and tended to the farm and garden. I wouldn‚Äôt be lying if I said I wished I chose the later for a regular day to day, but the bills needed to be paid and animals needed to be fed ūüėČ The 2-5 year plan is to move full time onto the farm and get a good start happening on the farmstead, growing local organic food for the Squamish community, hosting guests here on the farm in our tiny home B&B, raising free range happy chickens and pigs, and having a couple more horses join our herd. Our mission is to bring the people, the animals, and our food back to their roots, quite literally. Where the animals are free to roam as they so should, food is grown as much to its natural environment as possible and for us to come back to our relationship with the water we use, the food we eat, the power we pull and where our waste goes. Having more of a true relationship in whole, where everyone can come and be a part of it all, and so be immersed in this gorgeous place we call home. We look forward to sharing this dream with those near and far and hope you‚Äôll join us in the not too distant future. In the meantime here‚Äôs some photos of this summer, the animals, gardens, and the tiny home well on...
It's a dogs life…

It's a dogs life…

If theres one thing I really quite enjoy on the farm it’s being greeted to the day with these two monkeys..     I love getting up to their big happy grins excited¬†for the new day. Lately my usual winter mornings start off with making a¬†fire, boiling some water for tea, heading out to feed the horses¬†and then¬†hitting the road for our morning walk before breakfast. These two get so amped up about walks it cracks me up, and my favourite part of all is watching old man Olie get his morning wiggle on. (I’ll get some video of that one day) I feel inspired¬†to write about our walks together as I find it be be a great start to a day, like a morning meditation. I get my body moving and blood circulating, I clear my mind of the negative thoughts that start brewing and I¬†just find presence in the moment. ¬†I listen to the breeze rustling¬†the leaves, the calls of the morning birds, and my mind lets go. I’m able to focus on my breath each step I take and my body softens. I find I’m then able to¬† start thinking about the day ahead¬†with a clear mind, and it gives me great enthusiasm for the day ahead.. ¬†¬†¬†¬†   Not to mention the dogs let me get out and see all that life has to offer, and I’m truly grateful for this gift...
