Our Values

Peace and justice are inseparable —  without one, we cannot have the other

Everyone has the right to live and prosper in their own environment, unconditionally

Accept everyone where they are in this moment in time without judgment

Courage is the unbreakable piece inside us all that unleashes love, fosters hope, and makes life possible

Each day is an opportunity for growth and PEACE.

Our Philosophy

Whatever happens to any one of us—human, animal, plant or ecosystem—happens to all of us. We are all in this together, and together we can use our unique interests and skills to help others improve their lives, their families and their community. We believe in combining the enduring benefits of yoga, sustainable gardening, and creative/artistic expression in a holistic approach that helps:

Our events offer an alternative space that is educational, fun, non-judgemental and above all—inspiring.
