Nourishment is a central theme at each of our retreats. We focus on supporting local producers and work with organic ingredients grown with intention as the center point of every meal, which is why we support the greater efforts of raising awareness around sustainability and agricultural biodiversity. A portion of our retreat proceeds will go to Vandana Shiva’s International Seed Saving Organization, supporting biodiversity and women in agriculture.
