As much as possible, we will work with local communities to showcase local talent and will seek out and highlight our provincial talents as well. These will include events like gardening classes, Yoga retreats, cooking classes, and theatrical performances. While there will be no in-house services, wellness instructors may be brought in to provide holistic practices like yoga, reiki and massage. It is also our goal to bring in experts to teach such things as: plants for medicinal uses, organic gardening, cooking classes, guitar camps and leadership retreats.
