About

Do you have a deep interest in Arctic Farming and Polar Permaculture, and are curious what a typical day is like for these amazing people? If you do, then this full-day tour will give you that unique experience first-hand.

A Day in the Life of an Arctic Farmer is a complete, 7-hour day “tour” where you can see what goes on behind the scenes for yourself in real-time. First, your day will begin with a presentation from one of our experienced staff to get you up to speed on Permaculture. From there, you’ll learn: the ethics and principles behind growing fresh food, learn what Circular Economy is, spend time with worms and working with quails, find out the steps and techniques involved with planting (and sowing seeds) plus composting, and even what’s involved when delivering fresh food to hotels and restaurants…and just about everything else in between!

Besides this extraordinary real-life experience, you’ll enjoy a tasty lunch with fellow Arctic farmers, and get access to just about everything including the main lab, dome, workshop and gift shop as well.

At the conclusion of the 7-hour learning experience, you’ll be rewarded with your very own completion certificate, so you can be part of a very exclusive club!

This tour is easy for all, and will allow you to experience life on an arctic farm. You may get your hands dirty, but you will be able to handle everything on this tour without any special equipment or training.
