Relax, Retreat and Restore

What to bring

Clothes, Bed linen (sheets and blanket, doona, sleeping bags), towels, pillows, tea towels, and anything that each person wants to bring to entertain themselves. 


The Idea behind the Retreat

The idea of the weekend is to get away/relax/wonder/ponder and just be. At the same time explore a little about permaculture principles and what it means when we are already linked with a strong faith background. Three main principles form the basis of Permaculture: Care for People, Fair-trade/ethics and Care for the Earth. If these three things are so intrigant in our faith as well, why don’t we bring them together and see if there are areas to strengthen our faith, our community and the world together.  

I believe that Permaculture is the answer to a lot of things :)
