A Rocha Ontario

A Rocha Ontario offers place-based experiences, in a hospitable Christian community, centered on the connection between God, people and Creation. Transforming people into hopeful-active participants in the flourishing of God’s world.

Education Programs

Immersive nature experiences for all ages and abilities.


Most of our projects and programs are run out of the Cedar Haven Eco-Centre — a 95-acre oasis of fields and forests, in Southern Ontario — a short distance from Hamilton, Burlington, Guelph Cambridge, and Kitchener. Cedar Haven is a hub for studying, appreciating and restoring the natural world.

We are also in partnership with communities at Windstone Farm (Ottawa, Beckwith Township) and in the Ottawa/Gatineau area.

We are grateful to work (and live) within the Halton-Hamilton Watershed of Lake Ontario, on the unceded traditional territories of the Ho-de-no-sau-nee-ga (Haudenosaunee), Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ , Attiwonderonk, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and Mississauga First Nations, covered by the Dish with One Spoon Covenant.
