Charlotte and Ryan Walker are the creators of Walkerland. They chose to buy land and start their homestead in New Brunswick, Canada (The Province in Canada, I call Home)!

There is plenty to learn on the Walkerland Blog. Wow!! This blog is laid out like a magazine that doesn’t end. Charlotte enjoys growing her own herbs and posts a multitude of DIY projects like making your own salve from those homegrown herbs. Such an inspiration!
