The space
The Garden Cottage is a peaceful place to relax for a spring, summer, fall or winter getaway with gorgeous gardens and wildlife sanctuary in the "back yard". Great for guests who want to connect with conscious community, have a fully catered, well hosted event and also quiet private space to themselves. Comfortably accommodates 4-5 sleeping adults or 6-7 guests with small children with a cozy double beach bedroom and a large, spacious red studio bedroom with queen bed, double couch bed, single foamie and many windows overlooking our food forest gardens.

*** The Garden Cottage has a private bathroom and a communal tea station in the shared kitchen area for all our farm stay guests, with a full size fridge, glasses for water and wine, tea mugs, and kettle but is not equipped for cooking big meals.

Across the gardens, the Main House is home to the Proctor Family, international guests and interns who apprentice at Made with Love Urban Farm. Join us on the pool deck patio "wireless cafe" or great room for socially distanced brunch (10am) or farm table dinners (6-8pm) in the evening if your timing is right. Our gift to you! If you would like to contribute and invest in our local ethical small farm food system there is a donation jar in the great room. Thank-you. Kuk'stemc. Namaste.

Made with Love Urban Farm is a sustainable eco community - everything here is a little bit different. We like our life as natural as we can get it, we clean with baking soda and vinegar, we use unscented natural laundry soap and recycle, repair, reuse or upcycle everything we can to keep garbage out of our landfills and consume as little as possible. Our food is ethically omnivorous, seasonal, made with local farm ingredients and tons of vegetables and our community loves essential oils, flowers and herbs, but loathes cigarettes, synthetic perfume & fragrance. Our urban organic food forest farm hosts international volunteers, permaculture interns, guests and our family of four - on half a riverside acre in a suburban cul de sac in the city of Kamloops with free range bunny Sophia, the wonder chicken Beyonce and her flock of Real Canadian Climbing Chickens & a small dog named Bella running around our fruit tree gardens to entertain you.

Our "Farm Table Gathering" is a private rental of the entire property and can sleep 12. Please ask us about our shared bedrooms or hostel style teepee beds if you desire, or a more upscale eco king treehouse bedroom and we may be able to accommodate your request. Links to all our listings can be found on our profile page - click the picture of Colin & Alexandra.

Beautiful local skiing, hiking, paddling, biking, rock climbing and twice weekly farmers' market, May-October. Ask for our Activities Guide and remember to book a sagebrush picnic, wetlands canoe paddle, wild edibles beach walk or a farm to table cooking class dinner during your stay and join us on some Real Canadian Outdoor Adventures.

Wander through the gardens or across the estuary to the nature trails along the Thompson River at McArthur Park. At Made with Love Urban Farm, we practice food forest biodynamic permaculture and have many fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, greens, mushrooms, flowers and herbs. Join us in the main house kitchen to learn about nutritional healing, fermentation and whole food cooking. Meditate in the gardens, soak in the hot tub or dig in with our international volunteers to get your hands in the dirt to learn about edible and medicinal plants, wild foraging and permaculture food forests.

Guest access
Guests can walk a few paces from their front door to our secluded clothing optional pool deck, hot tub & chill space, nestled into private woods with river & mountain views. Large tables for outdoor dining, BBQ, lounge chairs, wild flower and herb gardens surround the pool and most prefer to sunbathe and swim naturally naked. Ducks and deer play in the estuary below and the riverbank is filled with delicious black currants and wild cherries. There is a steep path down to the water for canoes, kayaks and paddle boarders to access the main Thompson River in the spring season.

Big happy conscious community environment. Pool, Hot tub and Main house is open to all; 8 am to 10 pm. The Great Room is a big cafe like space for eating, wifi, music and connection. Find self serve breakfast and family style gourmet dinners each night if you would like to join us. Meals are made for everyone; there is a donation jar on the table if you would like to invest in our food forest and ethical omnivorous local food system. Great room has wireless internet and is filled with musical instruments; jams in the evening are welcome. We love music and live guitar often makes a poolside appearance. Join us at Made with Love Urban Farm & immerse yourself in organic wonder and bohemian fun!

Other things to note
Wireless internet is limited and is shut down for bedtime between 10pm and 8am and during dinner. It is only available on the pool patio and in the Main House Great Room and may not be accessible in some bedrooms.

The Garden Cottage is TV free, has bookshelves, games & a piano to play with in the red room.

Main house and pool / hot tub are closed for the night at 10 pm. Pool Deck and Hot Tub are clothing optional - all guests and community are comfortable with natural nudity.

Lovely old farmstead in a quaint vintage subdivision in Brocklehurst, 5 mins drive to the airport. Back gardens and pool deck overlook the wildlife wetlands across from McArthur Island Park. Very private, secluded natural landscape but only a few minutes from downtown Kamloops, 3 blocks from a bus stop in a suburban neighbourhood. Our property is right along the Kamloops Rivers Trail for great access to outdoor recreation, right in the City of Kamloops.
