The Deanery Project is a not-for-profit organization with a focus on the environment, the arts, youth and community, natural building and permaculture. We are open year round offering programs and projects related to energy, forests, health, active transportation and rural living.
Located on a beautiful 25-acre oceanfront property on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore, our facilities include meeting spaces, accommodations, hiking and bicycling trails, as well as water access to the protected wilderness areas of Ship Harbour Long Lake, Tangier Grand, and the 100 Wild Islands.
Founded 2011 the Deanery Project has become a dynamic education and demonstration site for environmental sustainability, skills development, the arts, and community building. Our staff is available to work with groups to develop experiential, place-based learning activities on our site, or in their communities. We support a wide range of ways for groups and individuals to engage with our space, and our team, from workshops, meetings and retreats, to special events and artist residencies.
