Rolling-Earth about-us

 

WELCOME TO ROLLING EARTH

 

Rolling Earth is located in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast, BC, and on the traditional territory of the shíshálh Nation.  We are a family-owned and operated eco-business sustained by the natural beauty and resources of Mount Elphinstone.

Rolling Earth was founded by life partners Brett Heneke and Joah Lui. Brett and Joah love being land-based, raising their children in the community of Roberts Creek and sharing their life with those from Vancouver and beyond.

She has earned an MA in Communication and works on documentary films and Communications consulting.
