Every year, hundreds of people take part in our Open Learning Programs. They share meals, touch the soil, meet remarkable people and discover what is truly important in life.
Our multicultural, English-speaking community with its organic farm is a welcoming place with many events for children, families, youth, adults, and seniors.
In all of this, we want to share our way of life with you—a way that is more sustainable, peaceful, and based on powerful spiritual values.
