The idea is to preserve and steward this historic farm as a place that ‘Grows Art’.

As a place, this old farm is 103 extraordinary acres of green grassy flowered meadow, huge stones, rocky headlands and dense forest at the edge of the Salish Sea on Vancouver Island. Here, the moving tides and waves and wind and weather constantly recreates the shoreline.

The seasons bring migrations of birds that add their songs to the music of the winds in the gigantic trees on the property. Cougars and bears and deer roam through the property on ancestral paths as hawks, eagles, giant vultures and ravens prowl the sky. Along the nine different beaches on the property gulls, oystercatchers, kingfishers and great blue herons streak and dive through the sky.

The experience of Spirit Bear Art Farm is intended to be one that brings together art, spirit, creativity and healing.
