THE FOOD

We are 100% committed to organic, in-season, healthy food that nourishes the body and nurtures the soul. We use only cold-pressed Peruvian coconut oil, Andean pink salt, and high-grade ingredients to cleanse and regenerate your body into health. What better way to show our respect to Pachamama (Mother Earth) & our bodies than by voting through purchases that support local, sustainable farmers.



THE LOCATION:

We are delighted to be staying at Casita Huaran- a local family-run B&B - just down the road from the land we will be designing during your course. This is a beautiful property and guest-home owned by a local Peruvian family dedicated to sustainable land stewardship, surrounded by cascading mountains and flowing water. There is plenty of shaded area for camping, and many options of cozy rooms which may be single rooms with private baths, double rooms with private baths, or double & triple rooms with shared baths. What a beautiful place to soak in the spectacular Andes and learn about permaculture and indigenous ceremony.
