Nicole Faires is an adventurer, self-proclaimed eccentric, wife, and mother of three girls. She grew up in a semi-nomadic homeschooling family and spent her early years in rural Montana on a hobby farm where she raised chickens, grew her own food, learned to crochet, read out-of-print books by Masanobu Fukuoka, and dreamed of the Amish. She now lives in beautiful British Columbia as a champion of renaissance sustainable lifestyles in a bus that is in constant transformation. She continues to seek new adventures and local food with her family.
