Creating intentional community

Designing a shared life that includes being led back to the land and to each other.

Since 2017 our grown children have been stewards of 10 beautiful treed acres in Shirley, on the west coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Together, our family is designing a shared life by creating an intentional community that includes sharing more, taking less, and being led back to the land and to each other.
