Cite Ecologique de Ham-Nord
We are located in a beautiful rural area, in the Bois-Francs region, (Center of the province of Quebec) in Canada. Our property covers 700 acres of land, 100 of which produce different kinds of crops. All our property has been protected from chemical products (chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc) for more than 25 years now. More than 100 people live on the property, participating in different ways to our school and working within our green businesses. We are surrounded by a beautiful landscape and from our windows we can contemplate the “Mont Ham”, a 713 meters high mountain, which is part of the Appalachian Mountains.
On-site businesses support the same ideologies and values as those associated with our school. Consequently, parents perform their daily work while practicing friendly procedures for resolution of conflicts, kinship, respect, recycling, etc. In that sense, they are role models for their children.
