Bringing Music & Creativity to Heneage House

Heneage House is alive again with youthful energy and is currently home to Habitat Farm wwoofers, the ThiNC Nature House volunteers, and employee.

It's a wonderful thing to see the house filled with colour, good food & conversation, laughter, games and music. If you have working but neglected instruments or records (LPs) to add to the growing collection, we would be grateful for your donations. Colourful, unique and expressive artworks in need of wall space will also be welcomed.


Needed: Fallen Fruit for Habitat Farm

We have a lot of hard working sows, doing a fabulous job raising their many piglets, who could greatly benefit from more fresh fruit & vegetables.

If you have fruit trees or an abundance of produce that would otherwise go to waste, please contact Elisabeth or Noah for drop off or pick up. or 250.416.6736


Habitat Farm at the Portal

For anyone who is unclear (and that may be many!), Habitat & Jollity Farm work together in our mission towards food security on Thetis Island.

Noah Bond manages the flow of the rotational animal grazing and rearing in partnership with the Porter family, wwoofers (volunteer farm workers), and livestock co-op members. Habitat Farm is an area designated within The Portal that is dedicated to sustainable animal husbandry, nature education and the site of the future food forest.

You can purchase Habitat Farm pasture raised eggs and charcuterie each Saturday at the Jollity Farm Market. You may also call or email during the week if you'd like to reserve eggs or place an order for charcuterie - 250.416.6736 or

Stay tuned for our latest batch of heritage breed, pasture raised fresh pork sausages plus cured goat sausage made with organic apricots and pistachios....coming soon... 

Thank you to everyone who visits Jollity Farm to share in community spirit and makes the choice for locally grown and produced foods! 

Visit the Habitat Farm website to view a beautiful video showcasing the farm, send your friends or family members to our wwoofer profile page to apply to work with us, or 'follow' the farm to share in the ever-evolving project.

From Val Brown, with thanks...

Dear Folks,

On this the 1st anniversary of my husband Pat's death.

I would like to say thank you to all those wonderful people who have helped me get through this sad year, and also for the phone calls, cards, hospital visits, and meals delivered to me after my recent accident.

Thank you all so much.

I now know why Pat never ever wanted to leave Thetis. It's a truly magical place.

Val Brown
