Two Sisters River Urban Farm
We're interested in access to local food, and fostering a physical connection with the earth. We're in the process of transforming our backyard into an urban farm. We've had backyard hens for ten years. We've loved watching our children learn to hold chickens, discover eggs, and develop a connection with their food. Rowan even learned to count, collecting eggs every day. We've worked out a lot of the challenges, and we're excited to help other people get backyard hens. We believe there should be a chicken in every willing backyard in Guelph. We're also interested in growing more vegetables in small spaces using permaculture principles. We've posted our backyard on the Wwoof Canada site, and have hosted two dozen Wwoofers over the last six months. We've hosted travellers from Germany, France, Spain, Australia, United States, Korea, and even Guelph! Each person has contributed beautifully to our family and our community. It's like travelling without leaving our home.
