Harewood Farm in East Cornwall is the location for our seasonal 4 day Field to Fork retreats, where we will be demonstrating the basics of ‘living on the land’ and sustainablity. A course for anyone dreaming of making this a reality or who wants to get an insight into this way of life.
I loved every minute of this retreat and left feeling nourished, nurtured, inspired and re-energised. Kirsten & Hayley’s passion and enthusiasm is truly infectious, and whilst the word “holistic” can often be used without real meaning, I can say without a doubt that the Bloom Spring Retreat addressed mind, body and soul in so many ways. I wouldn’t hesitate to describe these wonderful few days as a completely holistic, mindful and divine experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend!
I have had the pleasure of working with Jo during The Nordic Yoga Institute’s summer retreats in Murcia, Spain. Every time I am equally impressed by her deep knowledge and by how much passion she has for her work. It is a joy to follow her process throughout a retreat – from planning the meals, selecting delicious and local produce to creating beautiful tasting creative meals. She has a good economic eye and an incredible ability to buy just the right amount of food! It is difficult not to notice how much heart she puts into her work – how she cares about the origin of the ingredients and how she is able to lift up the flavours in the most natural and rich way. I have learnt a lot from Jo and I am looking forward to developing our working relationship in the future.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be Hayley’s intern in 2014. Her wealth of knowledge across many ‘healthy eating’ disciplines including Ayurvedic, 5 element theory, macrobiotic and raw, in addition to her ability to cut through the confusion, meant that not only was I quickly able to learn what suited me personally, but I also gained skills in the kitchen that work for my busy lifestyle.
If you have the opportunity to join one of her cooking courses or retreats, then I recommend you grab that opportunity with both hands. She will literally give you skills for life.
