Where does the get together take place?
The Get Together takes place at The Evolved Life a 150 acre farm in Plattsville, a village in the Blandford-Blenheim township outside of Kitchener, Ontario. This land is alive with a spring fed river and pond, apple orchard, forest trails, cedar trees, tall grasses and is home to an eagles nest, 12 horses, diverse flora and fauna and luckily, us, for the duration of this festival!
The land was originally settled by the The Neutral Confederacy or Neutral people, an Iroquoian-speaking North American indigenous people who were displaced by First Nations nomadic peoples in the 1650s as a result of warfare with Iroquois and epidemics resulting from European colonization. We honour the original people’s of this land and are immensely grateful to call it our resting place for The Get Together.

Meet Rob and Shari Martin, Owner’s of The Evolved Life and our Generous Hosts!
“We believe that a vibrant and full life requires constant growth and change so why not grow and change “on purpose” or with purpose.”
Shari and Rob have a mutual passion to be of service to people. Their shared dream of owning their own farm and living the country life helped fulfill their passion to connect with nature and the “self”. Rob, working in the fire service of Kitchener for many years, developed lesions from over-exposure to smoke. This sparked an enormous change in their lives as they searched for ways to achieve optimal health and wellness. Everything from physical exercise, what they ate, what they put on their bodies, to meditation, yoga and functional movement. Their lifestyle changed. Self-care and obtaining a broader perspective became important priorities, so Rob became a yoga/meditation teacher and together they founded The Evolved Life.
“We hope what we share here and through our work at The Evolved Life we can help you re-ignite or find your passion so you can “Grow on Purpose” on your own Evolved journey.”

The Yurts & Frame Tents
We have invited a plethora of Change Makers who specialize in different topics which they have built their own companies around. Each Change Maker will have their own tent where they will be running two hour workshops in the afternoons of our festival for everyone to attend.
The Communal Fire
We will have a fire burning for the duration of the festival. This will be our “central hub” with many of the activities happening in the field around the fire. This is a place you can go at anytime, night or day to connect, play your acoustic instruments and warm your spirit.
