Heard of Russian Dachnik Movement?

Here’s how you too can get waterfront lot, tillable land, floatplane landing and much more on Madawaska lake next to Arnprior airport and 3 minutes from downtown, dining, shopping and markets

The Russian Dacha and the Dachnik movement have been around for more than 100 years and the home garden for more than 1,000. 


35 million Dachniks (which is another word for ‘gardener’) saved the people of Russia—during 80 years of Communist rule, they produced more than half of the nation’s agricultural output. The productivity of their land was far higher than the industrial farms organized as massive collectives under Stalin. Read more about Russian dachniks here, https://www.eqjournal.org/?p=2527.

They proved that 1 hectare (2.47 acres) was enough land to support one family and even have enough left over to export and sell some produce. This 3.5 acre site close to downtown Arnprior on Madawaska lake is a gem–tillable land, clean water, wonderful views, close to dining, shopping and markets. You can practice your own version of sustainability by acquiring this gorgeous lot in Mississippi Mills…
