About Us

Welcome to Icky Bucky! We are so happy to have you here! Icky Bucky is a space for sharing simple and sustainable practices that celebrate the connection between the Earth and our Health, with a focus on intentional living, sustainable practices and rituals, eco crafts, joyful celebration, and the nourishing power of food.

Hi! We’re Brad and Kelly, the creators of Icky Bucky. We live in rural Ontario, Canada in a 140 year old farmhouse. We have two wonderful kids and three cute pups that fill our lives with joy, laughter, and love!

Icky Bucky is family-run, and as a family we believe strongly in creating a life that is simple, healthy and sustainable by celebrating the connection between nature, ritual, creativity and well-being. To us, this is a life fully lived.

The term Brad’s Scottish grandmother would use to describe the feeling of being comfortably full!

As a result, this space is focused on sharing practical tips, mindful rituals, eco crafts, nourishing recipes, and opportunities for joyful celebrations that promote a full and healthy, balanced life.

Sustainable Practices & Eco Crafts

We believe that our relationship with the Earth and her resources is an essential part of our overall well-being. As such, we are committed to sharing practical and easy-to-implement sustainable practices and opportunities to celebrate and enjoy the beauty of the natural world.

We also believe strongly in the power of creativity, and are excited to share fun ideas for eco crafts and DIY projects that help reduce waste and promote sustainability. 

We believe that crafting and creating is not only good for the planet, but also essential for our mental health and well-being!

Intentional Living and Mindful Rituals

Living intentionally through healthy practices and mindful rituals can positively impact our mental and emotional health. 

We believe that by taking time to slow down and connect with ourselves, others, the natural world, and the foods we eat we can create a more balanced and fulfilling life.

Joyful Celebration

Amidst the fullness of all of this intentional and sustainable living, we know how important it is to celebrate life’s moments – big and small – and believe that joyful celebrations are an essential part of a happy and healthy life. 

We share ideas for seasonal observances and rituals, holiday traditions, and celebrating with food; practices that promote gratitude, connection and community. In a busy modern lifestyle, rituals and celebrations can combat that all too familiar feeling that life is rapidly passing us by.
