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.

colors1Here we present an evaluation, reflection and hopefully a passing on of wisdom’s gained throughout our daily activities. In essence a common sense approach to simple living.

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.

  1. Hi Henry and Tracey. I’m quite intrigued by your story and blog. I’m a reporter with the Cape Breton Star and was wondering if you would be available to meet with me for the purpose of writing a story about your effort to live sustainably? Think it would be of great interest to our readership. Thanks a lot. Andrew

  2. I am doing a project for my own blog about people making the world a better place through various projects and lifestyles. I am emailing you because I think you fit in with my project. If you wouldn’t mind answering 4 questions for me, please email me at nepermhome@gmail.com and I’ll send you the interview. My blog is nepermhome.wordpress.com if you would like to check it out before you respond. Thanks for your time! Sarah
