Healing Through Food, Gardening, Herbs & Ceremony: Remembering Our Way is a 3-day residential course at OAEC. During the course, we gather in OAEC’s abundant 40-year-old Mother Garden to remember our connection with the Earth, the soil, the food that nourishes us, and the healing ways of the plant world. Each day we will meet in a sharing circle, and our dinner table will become our altar of gratitude.
This course covers the healing capacity of the plant world, including herbal medicine and gardening both practically and spiritually. We will also cover Weston A. Price’s pioneering work in health and nutrition, while studying the vitality of traditional people before the introduction of processed foods. Read an article about the course.
Overnight visitors to OAEC sleep in beautiful, spacious guest accommodations overlooking our gardens. Alternately, you are welcome to camp in our Wildlands Preserve. Our accommodations are clean, lovely and spacious, with easy access to modern bathroom facilities. You will enjoy three delicious, organic, hearty vegetarian meals a day, with produce sourced from our gardens and orchards or from local farms.
Course and retreat participants at OAEC can also expect to experience powerful personal transformation, deep education and inspiring networking opportunities.
This residential course at OAEC is $495, or $445 if registered three weeks in advance. The price includes onsite accommodations and three homemade, organic and straight-from-the-garden meals each day.
The deposit amount for this course is $100.
The 2015 course begins at 10:00am on Friday, June 26th and ends at 4:00pm on Sunday, June 28th.
“When people walk through the OAEC gardens, they are touched by a deeper knowing of what nourishes them, something so many of us long for today. It is one of the great joys of my life to share these gardens with others, exploring the wisdom that they hold.”
