Our Services

Fall 2018.  We are shifting to the next phase of our lives and focusing on:

  • Our second term on council with the District of Highlands (2018-2022)
  • Consulting for Rain Water and Compost Toilet Systems,
  • Policy Consulting,
  • Promotion of our book, “Essential Composting Toilets“, (see below for buying details)
  • Workshops, presentations, and speaking engagements
  • The Eco-Sense Nursery.  We will continue to have ten open farm days per year, six days in the spring and four in the fall), and always open to booking a private nursery appointment.

We are shifting away from the focus on us and on tours of the homestead and will only do an occasional tour.  However, our blogposts will still cover many day to day stories, photos, and experiences of our life.

  1. Hi,
    I’m very interested in learning how to build a cob home. I live in lethbridge, alberta. Do you offer any courses?
    Many thanks,

    • Hi Dave, Sorry we are not offering any cob building courses at this time. Cob may not be the most appropriate building material in Alberta…have you considered straw bale? I would only consider building with cob in your climate if your building site is in full sun and including a well insulated north wall with lots of other passive solar features. Of course if you are building REALLY small (<200sqft) cob could still make sense as it would be easy to heat. Lots of companies around offering natural building courses.
      All the best.
