    (We switched accounts from T0E2G0 to Liz&Marty because this is much more in line with our internet presence. Sorry for the inconvenience. We won't do this again... Promise)

    We are returning from a 3 years sailing trip and decided it was time to travel the autonomous route.
    We live in Quebec, Canada, on a 10 acre wooded land on top of our work studio. So life is good and we have the great and fun challenge of shaping our environment into an environmentally sustainable and productive living paradise.
    We consider ourselves lucky and try to give more than we receive from society.
    Although we have been keeping a garden forever, the aim is changed and much more involved.
    Here is a few projects for the upcoming summer season.
    - Setup 2 bee hives.
    - Plant 40 chickens and ducks.
    - Triple our garden area.
    - Start foraging and mapping our forest for possible food sources.
    - Expand our contact list for local resources, unmodified seeds and knowledge.
    - Plan for the construction of a greenhouse annexed to our shop.
    So we hope to learn from you guys and if we can, help others.

    Hi guys and thank you for joining us!

    3 years sailing - wow what a lifestyle! :)

    Sounds like you're going to be busy this summer but I get the feeling you like to be and I can relate to that :twothumbsup:

    Thanks Mark. I've been watching some of your Youtube stuff. Very nice work.
    Yeah, we do keep busy. But between all the projects, fun stuff, volunteer work, and getting self sufficient, we still have to work for money.
    Funny thing is we made a lot of Australian friends on the water. I guess it's the humor and outdoors that bring us along. Anyway, we'll post some stuff when we start work and planning some of our projects. Still have 2 to 3 ft of snow to get rid of.
    I think the first project will be to build the Bee Hives.
