OUR community of foragers, wilderness experts, and farmers for a day of fun filled activities taking place on the forests and farms of OUR Ecovillage – Vancouver island’s sustainable learning center and Ecovillage!

Give kids the chance to escape from the classroom and rewild their senses by engaging in the natural world around them, while teaching them how to do so in a sustainable way for the future of the planet they will inherit.

Discover our forests, our farm, our friendly collection of animals, and OUR organic garden with hands-on experiences with this special collection of March Break activities taking place across 25 acres of land in beautiful Shawnigan Lake.

Attention Parents:

We are also hosting a Permaculture Teachers Training Course during this time and would love it if you came!
