Healthy Home: Wilderness Getaway (2001)

Season 2, Episode 9
Only available in Canada, United States

Toronto contractor Yuill McGregor’s home is in the middle of a busy downtown neighborhood but feel like a getaway in the wilderness. The Yuill family’s home combines the health features of recycled and non-toxic materials, the benefits of careful space planning, and some unique opportunities for both exercise and relaxation.

See how a home climbing wall could be the perfect substitute for the side of a mountain.

Our Healthy Home expert inspects a typical medicine cabinet and shows us how to safely clean it out and to restock it with essential items.

Bored of early retirement and their urban waterfront condo, Heather and Arleigh Fair bought eighty acres in the heart of British Columbia’s Fraser Valley. Today at the Tuscan Farm Gardens they tend to a variety of distinct gardens, grow and harvest fields of Lavender and Echinacea, run a bed and breakfast, and mind a shop selling natural products that they make on-site. Come learn to make gourmet lavender jelly! Enjoy the healthy benefits of this fragrant flower in a home-made spread that can be a refreshing dessert, or the perfect accompaniment to lamb, roast or rabbit.
