I run an organic farming operation that includes vegetables and I make maple syrup each spring. You are welcome to visit the garden or the sugarbush at Zero Carbon Garden as part of your stay. I am always looking for volunteers to help around the farm too. I stay in a small cabin nearby in case there is any questions about living in the solar-powered house. There is a manual but sometimes folks aren't used to living off the grid. It is a great feeling. I have been doing it for 20 years and each day the sun shines I am grinning with joy! So will you as you learn to manage your energy needs and learn to live more simply.

You have access to the trails, shoreline, canoe(s), beach, all the house and can visit the garden anytime. It is a pretty quiet peaceful place except in the fall and spring when thousands of Canada geese return and then the river is alive with a multitude of honking!

I will need to visit the house to check the solar system daily. Shouldn't be more than 10 minutes and I can show you the various manual tasks such as pumping water and monitoring the power bank if you want to learn about such things.

There aren't many people who live nearby. My closest neighbors are across the river in Ontario which is about 2 miles away. I sometimes rent out the old boat house but that is across the bay and is itself as private as this house.

There is a daily bus to Ottawa/Hull but no much else for public transportation but plenty of people commute to the city each day.

There is a compost toilet and a regular toilet for your use. And if needed their is a secluded out door John (outhouse) with a good library!

Tom and his family are running a alternative gardening operation called Zero Carbon Garden. They grow organic vegetables which they sell at farmers markets and also do community supported agriculture (CSA).

"We want to share and educate visitors at our secluded water frontage along the Ottawa River.

We encourage people to visit the gardens, smell the flowers, and even pull a weed or two. Partly to show people, especially kids where real food comes - the soil. If you want to help in the garden we often trade vegetables for your effort.

We make and sell maple syrup from our sustainable sugar tree forest.

I am professional technical writer who has changed tack and now with one novel published and working on a sequel to the Pilgrimage of Amos available on Amazon or his house.
My joys each day are:
- meeting new travelers to Canada.
-bring people from all over the world together to see how life can be simple and beautiful is why I like to host people.

Karen is a co-host and Amy has the Transcendental Cottage listed here are also hosts at this property each with a distinctive and unique philosophy about the river and the environment along the shoreline. We all take great care to treat our guests like the wild environment along the river shore - with great care!

Once we meet we can exchange stories and perhaps grow a sensible place on the planet. "

Peace
