Greek Retreat - May 2022
A plant focused holiday retreat balanced with activity, reflection and good company.
Coming together as a community to share new experiences and create memories – and eat plants!
This is an opportunity for us to come together and spend time with one another (face to face!), knowing that our holiday is 100% plant focused. We will cook together, share recipes, practice yoga and meditations, explore the sights of Greece, play in the sea and by the pool, learn from one another and strengthen the bonds we need to keep us connected to each other and the planet as well as deepen our commitment to our health and wellness.
1 – 31 May 2022

Anavissos is located in the southeast of Athens. It is a seaside area overlooking the Saronic Gulf, close to the well-known Cape Sounio. Filled with luxury vacation houses, it is one of the most famous suburbs in Attica Prefecture.

As we will be cooking and eating together – gorgeous plant recipes!! – we will also be sharing the costs. Fresh markets are a daily norm here in Greece and we will explore the markets to find the freshest and most deliciously nutritious produce available. Once a week we will total the grocery expenses and share it among whomever is staying at the villa during that week.
Please bring your favorite recipes to share with us all and if possible, send an email with your ingredients so that we can be sure that we have everything you need. Creative fun in the kitchen!!
