Here are some of our frequently asked questions:
Feel free to reach out to us if you can't find an answer here, we get all sorts of questions!
I have food sensitivities. Am I going to be able to eat the meals?
Yes, we are able to accommodate all sorts of dietary needs. You are also free to bring your own supplementation if needed.
Can I rent your facilities for a special event?
I teach yoga, dance, movement, and/or meditation. How do I bring my students here?
We have regular spaces available on the farm for weekly classes, day-long workshops and residential retreats. If you are interested in bringing your class or retreat here, please contact us.
Our accommodations are used for retreats only. If you are interested in a personal retreat please contact us.
Can I rent accommodation on the farm?
Check our 'Events' calendar, if there isn't a retreat happening (think winter), get in touch and we'll see if we can help make it happen.
Can I do a personal retreat?
We have a farm stand near the Gatehouse that is open around the clock, 7 days a week, all year long. Don't forget to buy one of Haidee's legendary cookies!
Where can I buy your produce?
Yes. We do sell bulk quantities of certain crops. Please contact us to find out more.
Can I get bulk orders?
We currently don’t sell our seeds but a plan to do so is germinating. Watch for seed sales in the near future. In the meantime, check out Salt Spring Seeds.
Do you sell seed?
Can I volunteer at your farm?
They sure do. Our community is made up of 22 people (12 adults and 10 children), most of whom are long time residents of the farm.
Do people live here?
The farm is currently at capacity but you can experience our community through the WWOOFing program or by making yearly pilgrimages here for retreats.
Can I live here?
We’re not sure. We are a group of people sharing similar values and living together on a piece of land. Some of us work on that land, and some of us don’t. We all get together on Thursdays.
Is this a commune?
Thursday is our community day. We all come together on this day to work on the farm and share lunch. It’s a great way to spend time with each other and get a little work done. Read more about Thursdays here.
What’s up with Thursdays?
We have been successful in growing enough potatoes, carrots, beets and greens to feed all of us, all year long.
Do you grow all your winter food?
We don’t have a human guru. If we follow anything it is the land’s whims and ways.
Do you have a guru?
Some do and some don’t.
Do the children go to school?
No. For some the farm is their livelihood and others work full time off the farm.
Does everybody work here?
Salt spring island:
The fastest way is by float plane. Both Harbour Air and Sea Air offer a variety of flights directly to the island. The next fastest way is by catching a ferry to either Long Harbour, Vesuvius or Fulford Harbour. However, if you're coming from Galiano, it's faster to kayak to Southey Point and then hitch hike south.
How do I get there?
We're not sure. But people have mentioned a crystal mountain in Ruckle Park.
Where are the crystals?
You may be out of batteries, but, most likely you're experiencing the spotty south island reception. Find a high point, reception often works at a high point, but it often doesn't too.
Why doesn't my cell phone work?
