Beneath the beauty of Mt. Sentinel, at the entrance to the Slocan Valley, is the 130-acre farm where we are learning to cultivate right relationships between men and women, adults and children, us and the earth. Because of the love Yahshua the Messiah has shown us, we are experiencing the regeneration of our human purpose—to manifest the character of our Creator as a dwelling of His Spirit. The fruit of this is the expression of His heart, an environment that abounds with love, compassion, and understanding, allowing us to be healed in every aspect of our being.
Our desire is to see this life spread so that all who are seeking to find their “ultimate purpose” can have the opportunity to be joined to His people, where love loves, healing happens, and relationships grow deeper. You will be able to find us in the town of Nelson at our café, The Preserved Seed, or at our farm, just outside of town. We would love to share the life we have with you!
