An education vacation........Turquoise Barn is the perfect place to relax, get healthy, and LEARN! When not in the kitchen learning to prepare delicious healthy recipes or out in the garden harvesting fresh veggies & wild edibles; you can hike, bike, swim, play with the chickens, stroll in the organic gardens or just relax by the pond in the Zen house or hammock and listen to the peacefulness of the water.
In an effort to maintain the high quality and "hand-craftedness" of our meals and workshops, as well as creating a unique & beneficial experience for you...we prefer to keep our retreats at a smaller level. Therefore, space is very limited!
