About us

Catherine is a warm and inviting host, committed to supporting artists in their creative process. A long time participant in the arts, she delights in providing a simple yet gracious place to facilitate individuals to get what they need from this restorative time.

Wild Rose Farm Artist Retreat is a member of Res Artis, a Worldwide Network of Artist Residencies; a non- profit foundation based in the Netherlands. Its membership is made up of arts centres and artist’s organisations that encourage the development of contemporary art and artists through residential artist exchange programs.

Although welcoming artists of all disciplines, Wild Rose Farm uniquely offers dance studio space to dance and performance artists and choreographers. The host is a dancer and past chair of Dance Ontario.

Operating for over 20 years as an organic farm Wild Rose Farm is currently blessed with an orchard, wild edibles and access to local organic produce from neighboring farms.

We are proudly a founding member of Ontario’s 100% renewable energy retailer, Bullfrog Power.

This retreat program is intended to give artists an opportunity to create or rejuvenate, in a peaceful rural, inspirational and intimate setting.
