At Clear Sky, we are devoted to ecological education. We have a one acre food forest demonstration project, are involved with grasslands restoration education and run annual permaculture and food forest workshops with expert Canadian teachers.
With funding from the BC Agroforestry Industry Development Initiative, Clear Sky is designing and implementing a one acre showcase food forest model for South Eastern BC that is both ecologically sound and productive. We invite community participation and learning and welcome you on scheduled tours, workshops, courses and volunteer opportunities.
Volunteer Fridays: join us on Fridays for a chance to learn and help on this project and other farm activities. See below for Food Forest Courses.

Native Grasslands Restoration
Grasslands have some of the highest biodiversity in Canada and are particularly threatened in the region surrounding Clear Sky.
Here at Clear Sky our grasslands restoration projects are a lens to see the world as a place to learn and these projects as an opportunity to live generously.
