Looking out of the window

What’s in a name?

In 2013 we became the second owners of an off grid straw bale home in the Ottawa Valley, Ontario. Along with the house came a few acres of land which we intend to maintain where necessary, grow food following permaculture ideas and enhance as a wildlife habitat. This blog will talk about living off-grid and in a sustainable way, the gardening, as well as the wildlife and plants that we discover on the land.
