Solscape's next ECO-LOGIC Learning Adventure (E.L.L.A) starts 19 NOV

Posted by Phil McCabe over 11 years ago

An exciting and educational all-inclusive 5 day living and learning experience that’s all about ‘getting right into it’ the Raglan ECO-LOGICAL way.

Here’s the Goodness!  …
Imagine 5 days of  hands-on Permaculture education, Earth building, Surfing, daily Yoga, Kayaking, Mountain hiking, Eco-films & discussions, Contemporary Maori Raranga/weaving, discovering local community solutions in action, making new friends and sharing time with like-minded people.

Imagine enjoying a stay in Solscape’s peaceful and stunning natural environment overlooking the westcoast waves of the Tasman sea, being cooked for and nourished up with locally grown healthy cuisine, and being taken on a journey with purpose …. a transformational experience diving deep into some of the issues our generation has been left to clean up, learning fun and empowering low-tech solutions,  and discovering some of the many awesome sites and activities on offer in our beautiful little corner of New Zealand/ Aotearoa.
