The Grow-Paradise Hawaiian Eco-Adventure Retreat
Location: The Big Island of Hawaii
Date: January 2019
Humans can and are creating paradise on planet Earth, and this unforgettable Big Island experience proves it. Fortunately, we also find ourselves in a human-made tropical fruit paradise. We will be taking part in actual paradise creation by planting fruit trees together for the community and harvesting tropical fruits and coconuts together. This is not your normal visit to Hawaii, and not your normal vacation.
The cuisine on the retreat will be locally sourced and/or organically grown. Food foraging, preparations, and interactive demonstrations will play a large part of our experience here. As well as the prepared meals, fresh coconuts, snacks, and tropical fruits will be on hand. We will have a 9-tray dehydrator, vitamix blender, ice cream maker and more on hand for culinary co-creations.
These journeys are designed for people who wish to commune with nature, try new foods and fruit, and meet like-minded people who share the similar interests while exploring and meeting locals who are literally creating paradise, while we also create paradise ourselves as a team, planting fruit trees and gardens together.

These retreats can be both physically challenging and relaxing. Guests will have the options of pushing their limits or enjoying the slower pace of the island, as well as having as much solitary or social time as they see fit. These are also small retreats, with typically only 6-8 people in attendance. Because of this venue, we can accept 8 attendees.
