As a husband and father first and writer and journalist second, Jacob thinks about the future his boys will inherit. As a boy, he built forts and romped in the woods by his home, enjoying tracking, climbing trees and swimming in the creek.
Today he lives in Winnipeg’s North End, and he and his wife are looking for a home in the country for their family.
He blogs about the adventures of family visits to different intentional communities, including ecovillages, Hutterite colonies and Earthships. His journalism has been published by The Aquarian, a local newspaper and he has self-published his own fiction. He also leads the development of a website to help facilitate the cocreation of ecovillages in Manitoba.
