Less than 6 weeks until the Retreat!

Kia Ora and Happy New Year,

Less than 6 weeks to go until our retreat.  Registrations are rolling in and I am sure it will be a wonderful  time together!

Latest little updates-


Smoothies will be available to buy, twice a day, freshly made.

Small bags of dried fruit, nuts and scroggin type mixes will be available to buy

Pancakes will be available for Sunday breakfast (a very popular treat last year!)

Breakfast and lunch will be self catering

Dinner will be shared - more details on the food blog and in later blogs!
(Please let me know if you are available to help co-ordinate any evening meals - 4 or 5 people in the kitchen is a more pleasant experience than 20 or 30!)

The Programme

As unschoolers, and potential unschoolers there was a natural flow to last years retreat than worked best being mostly unscheduled.

There will be some scheduled activities for  the little kids, the big kids, the adults and for everyone.

Most popular and top of the list -

****Market place - kids, adults, homemade....get creative and remember to bring lots of small change to spend.  Last year we had hand made shields, tools, candles, jewellery, felting, massage, cups of tea, snacks.....

****Women's and men's circles (separate) - this was a time to share, ask questions, listen and just hang out.
          Everyone found these sessions very valuable - maybe we can squeeze in more than one each...?

**** Concert

****Fancy dress dinner/party

Ideas for this year are still underway I will be blogging as things are finalised.
If there is something you would like to run or be involved in please let me know.

Watch this space and please remember to pass this on and sign up for updates if you haven't already.
