Salmon Run – Parks Canada

This Saturday, May 18th from 1-3pm at the Halifax Central Library, Treehouse Village Ecohousing is holding an information session. We're hoping to build a family-friendly, solar powered, walkable village in Bridgewater.

 

The project has built a lot of momentum since our launch in Fall of 2018 by Cate and Leon de Vreede, established leaders in environmental education and sustainable planning in Nova Scotia. With 22 households in associate membership and land secured, we are at a critical juncture where we need help to reach just 3-4 more interested families to turn this vision into reality.

 

Are you looking to increase your quality of life and decrease your ecological footprint? Come out this Saturday in Halifax with Cate and Leon de Vreede to get an update on the land and hear more about how joining now means that you can engage in the design process.

 

This Sunday, Cate and Leon will be hosting a second info session at the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Center in Bridgewater (1-3pm). If you want to see what this innovative community has to offer, Sunday might be your day! Hope to see you soon!
