The Grow-Paradise Hawaiian Eco-Adventure Retreat
Location: The Big Island of Hawaii
Date: December 29th 2017 - January 5th 2018
Immerse yourself into a world that few have experienced while connecting with new friends that appreciate healthy living, nature, and learning new skills. Humans can indeed create paradise on planet Earth, and this unforgettable island experience proves it. Fortunately, we also find ourselves in a human-made fruit-paradise. We will also be taking part in actual paradise creation by planting fruit trees 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 also have a 9-tray excalibur dehydrator and a vitamix blender to make many different raw foods.
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 10-11 people in attendance. Because of this venue, we can only accept 9 attendees. It will be amazing!
The Grow Paradise Retreats -
- Are consciously catered with the best organic and wild produce the island has to offer
- Are situated on properties that reflect edible landscaping and permaculture principles
- Offers workshops and classes that both inspire and empower guests for future thriving and liberation
- Are created from the heart, knowing that every guest is special and unique
We would love to see you on our upcoming adventure!
