Annapolis Valley Farmland Trust website Barefoot Acupuncturists  The Blockhouse School Project website

The Annapolis Valley Farmland Trust’s goal is to protect and conserve as much local farmland as possible for farming, and only for farming. The website is designed to get people to support the organization (above left). A WordPress site.

Barefoot Acupuncturists (above, centre) is a humanitarian organization offering acupuncture services and training for the poorest of the poor in India. I worked closely with its founder, Walter Fischer (mostly via Skype), on the English, French and Spanish (not the Chinese!) sections of the website. I hope the result conveys the passion and integrity of the team and their work. The wonderful photography makes the site well worth a visit.

The Blockhouse School Project (above, right) was hoping to recycle an old school into a community centre. This is a WordPress site.


I have set up a number of websites in French or bilingual French-English, all based on WordPress.

The backend can be in the language of your choice.

International Symposium on Fireworks  awens  

The International Symposium on Fireworks (above, left) meets every couple of years in a different location and has a bang of a time! We maintain the site for the busy organizer, adding resources as the event draws closer, and photos and videos afterwards.

The Association of Workplace Educators of Nova Scotia (AWENS)’s website keeps members informed and serves as a contact point for potential clients. Redesigned in 2016.

The Mahone Bay Pool is a community-run pool open in the summer. During the summer, the young staff update the WordPress-based website. They learn very quickly. Board members maintain it in the winter.

Are you thinking about a forum for your website?
