Turn a New Leaf was created to provide products which enhance our homes, community and planet and for sharing our passion towards a healthier and more realistic sustainable future. This blog is the collaboration of Henry Krieger and Tracey Marsh, the inspiration and proprietors behind Turn A New Leaf.
We are a family living in the Highlands of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, eking out an existence in harmony with our natural surroundings and forging a path guided by our strong convictions to help enhance and respect the natural world we live in. We home-school our two oldest children, meanwhile entertaining the needs of our youngest one still in diapers, just starting to walk. Early in 2012 we acquired a 10 acre parcel of forested land on the southern slope of MacMillan Mountain. We’ve carefully opened half an acre among the trees to provide a place for the newly completed shed/shop and for our off-grid natural house which we will build through 2013. With careful, conscious and respectful foresight we will develop our little piece of paradise into an exemplary natural and sustainable home.
