Welcome to Snow’s Hillhouse Microfarm… Abundant, Creative, Evolving.


Who We Are

Welcome to Snow’s Hillhouse Mircofarm, a 3.5 Acre permaculture property located 10 km east of the West Kootenay mountain town of Nelson, BC, Canada.

The property is currently a single-owner smallholding, currently with 4 long-term residents and room for one or two more. We have been focused on becoming a self-sustaining, permaculture-based self-sustaining property.

Our primary goal at this stage is building community, creating healthy living strategies, and growing food, using permaculture principles as our guide. Residents share meals from time to time, food, energy, space, knowledge, skills, wisdom and creativity–and strive to work together to create socially, ecologically, economically and spiritually mindful practices and systems. For detailed information about us, our vision and about the land and buildings, visit About UsVision and Mission, and our Photo Gallery.

What We Do

In 2016, we will continue to develop permaculture solutions and applications, focusing on maximizing the yield from our gardens. In future years, we hope to create tent sites for short-term visitors and provide workshops and classes for keen learners from near and far. For more information about what we are doing, about our plans and what we have accomplished, read through About Us and The Plan  and for a list of past workshops offered (to give you an idea about the types of future workshops we will likely be offering) visit Classes and Workshops.
