“Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time.”
That particular quote kept cycling through my mind when my Fiancee Nick and I make a trip out to Valhalla Montreal. Their mission (which I hijacked from their Facebook page) is simple: Valhalla Montreal builds and develops a practical educational site focused on sustainable solutions relating to human needs such as food, shelter, water, energy and social structure. Nick discovered this place and given that it was a gorgeous day, I decided to tag along; camera in tow.
In a day and age where we are spending excessive amounts of time behind our various types of technology, coming to Valhalla is a literal and figurative breath of fresh air. There’s a completely different vibe when you step on the grounds. Every Saturday at 10 am, they invite everyone and anyone to the land to come take a tour, help out, plant your own garden space among other things.
Added bonus: They make some of the most awesome pizza I have ever had. Which is saying a lot since i’m a retired Chef.
I encourage you to go check it out if you’re able, I could write a number of things about how peaceful this place is and how there’s no ego’s, just a like minded group of people who all have a common goal.
As an added bonus, you might get to hang out with Bear the dog! Did I mention how good the pizza is yet? Check out the Valhalla website for more pertinent information.
