Foraging Workshop date TBD

Welcome to a day spent reconnecting with nature!
We will spend a day in nature together, anchored at the gorgeous SpiritWood Retreat , just south of Calgary in the gentle, rolling hills of Priddis, Alberta. Take a glorious day to yourself – &/or bring a friend to learn how to forage wild dandelions in the woods surrounding the retreat. 
Enjoy the silence of the forest as you “bathe” in the sound of the creek lolling beside you as you search for the delicious and nourishing wild greens untouched by any chemicals. Listen to the birds and insects, as you dig around in the dirt for the best roots to add to your yield.
We will then teach you how to properly clean & wash your wilds for edibles once you take your harvest home.
Please join us with a $75 investment, which includes: 
  • A full-day itinerary from 9-4pm
  • Two group (yoga) exercises at the start & end of the day
  • Light breakfast, coffee/tea & fruit throughout the day
  • Foraging tutorial + latex gloves and small knife to harvest
  • Foraging Worksheet to take home
  • A full day of forest bathing in pristine woods
  • Your own full harvest of wild greens to take home
  • A great group of like-minded folks 
* Please bring your favourite garden gloves; a sun hat & sun screen; wear long pants to avoid thrush scrapes in the natural woods
* If you have a favourite harvest knife &/or sheers, please bring them
* Please bring a yoga or Pilates mat &/or blanket
* Remember to dress according to the weather w/ proper footwear
* Times are relatively flexible throughout the day – we  won’t stick to a rigid schedule, except for the start and finish
* All food provided is Vegan & Gluten-free ~ if you require more food throughout the day, please feel free to bring your own picnic lunch
Finally, we will begin and end the day with a gentle stretch to limber up and express gratitude for the remarkable beauty and goodness of our gathering.
A light breakfast will be offered, as well as coffee & tea throughout the day. A light snack of fruit will also be provided, along with relevant utensils for your harvesting.

  • My husband & I just came back from Greece, after spending a week on Spetses with Eleni and the rest of the group & we had an amazing time! The yoga was wonderful and the island gorgeous. We highly recommend Holistic Hellenic.

  • Eleni has created a wonderful concept and has followed through with a great product in the form of Holistic Hellenic Holdings.

  • Thanks for all of the Greek bits I would never have been introduced to if it wasn’t for your Evia retreat…

  • "I was delighted with the retreat on Evia on the second week. It was a more intimate venue as we were a small number of participants but it offered a real connection opportunity between the participants and the teachers and among the participants themselves. I appreciated the knowledge of the teachers [Lerrita & Tanis] and the way they taught as well as their incredible availability to the participants and their dedication to yoga. The setup [at Zarka Villas] was amazing! A dream!!!! Calm site, yet a big walk away from the beach - as Eleni said, if you rent a car it is much more easier and you can discover other gem beaches around! Also a nice walk to the village. I enjoyed the kindness and joyfulness of the staff and the people in the village. It was my first visit to Greece...I was conquered!”
