Celebrate the balance between light and dark with a nature-filled weekend retreat to the Mendocino coast. During our weekend of seasonally inspired yoga, we'll stay on a secluded fruit & flower farm nestled on the cusp of woods and sea. Think huge starry skies, simple nourishing food, fires and tea (or wine) and all the fresh air your lungs can handle! We'll have plenty of free time to explore the surrounding wilderness. Options include kayaking along the Gualala River, visit local beaches, hiking, picking fruit from the orchard, or just laze around and soak up the simplicity of farm living.
Provided on both Saturday and Sunday morning, these meals will be more casual - homemade fixings will be provided. Breakfasts will likely consist of farm fresh eggs, home made bread, granola, jam, yogurt, fruit + coffee and tea.
Organic, seasonal vegetarian dinners will be provided on Friday and Saturday evening and cooked by our lovely hosts! Please let us know if you have any allergies or diet preferences.
On Saturday afternoon we will enjoy homemade soup, salad and bread.
The farmhouse is off the grid and stands on a forty acre organic fruit and flower farm. The interior is beautiful knotty pine with log and beam rustic style construction. There is a huge living space complete with a wood fired stove (which is the main source of heat for the house). Wood milled from trees on the permaculture farm/homestead have been used in all the construction. We will share three hand made bathrooms detailed with slate and travertine. The main farmhouse, fruit orchards and gardens are ours to enjoy and will be tended by our hosts daily.

A NOTE ABOUT BEING OFF THE GRID
Electrical and water usage must be done so mindfully and sparingly. There is limited power on the farm when it’s dark, though when the sun is on the panels, most things work.
