Vegan Farmstay & Farm Sanctuary   

This Summer, Piebird celebrates 13 years of being a vegan agri-tourism destination for loving people like you and a happy home for animal-persons!

After twelve years we are feeling very grateful for all the wonderful humans who have come stayed, and added to the love that lives here. 

We really appreciate the support and the kindness communicated. This has allowed us to grow first into a vegan agri-tourism destination (and be a voice in the food revolution) -- and then grow into a farm sanctuary to live in service to animal-persons. 

Everything Piebird does is a celebration: a celebration of animal-friends, a celebration of real food, a celebration of the resilience of community, a celebration of standing up for goodness, and a celebration of the Earth. Come be a part of this celebration, come be a part of the Peace that is Piebird.

Simply Sustainable Soaps are proudly made in Galt, Ontario.

All unWashed Simply Sustainable Soaps are proudly made in Galt, Ontario. Our journey with cosmetic forumulation, like so many others, began with skin sensitivities and a desire for products that do not leave our planet a worse place for future generations. After becoming frustrated with the lack of options available we decided to start making our own. Some time later, after frequent feedback and prodding from friends and family, we decided to share our creations with the world - and hopefully help to make it a little bit of a better place at the same time!

The Best Vegan Camping experience in Muskoka!

Lighthouse Landing is a not-for-profit summer camp that welcomes families with children of all abilities. We have remained a family run camp since 1963 because of a strong commitment to WHY we believe in summer camp for families. First, in our fast paced world, we need, more than ever, sites for meaningful family interaction. Second, we strongly believe in the power natural environments have to educate children intellectually, socially, spiritually and physically.

So it is our mission to provide a safe, natural environment for self-discovery, interaction with others, and re-connection with nature.

Our family's lineage is from West Africa Ghana, so growing up we learnt the importance of moisturizing our skin daily, but never grew to understand the benefits. 8 years ago we were finally taught how to make our own body creams from our grandmother ensuring we always got "pure" unrefined shea directly from our family still living in Ghana. We began experimenting and understanding the traditional healing abilities of the shea.
