We are working on a deal to get the land in the next year, with plans to move out there in the next 2-3 years. Currently the land is a fallow ash forest. The ash have been all but wiped out by the emerald ash borer. What this means is an open canopy, great for starting our food forest. The other big bonus on Pelee is the climate. Pelee boasts the longest growing season in Ontario, as well as the most heat units annually. I am convinced this is the ideal location.
Anyone interested in low impact living on Pelee let me know. We can chat and see if we are on the same page, see if our goals match up well enough to work together.
