27-29 June 2014| @ Kokneses pagasts “Janavas”
We would like to invite our friends and supporters to join us this June on our special herbal tea expedition: “Herbal tea, where do you come from? 2″. After a very successful event last year, we’ve decided to organize not just one, but two herbal expeditions this year! The second expedition will take place from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 June, at certified organic farm „Janavas” near Koknese.
(Another herbal tea expedition will take place from 13 to 15 June. You can find more information HERE. )
During the expedition:
- learn about wild herbs;
- collect your own herbs in the special certified organic gardens;
- sleep at the rustic “Janavas” farm;
- cook and eat delicious fresh vegetarian meals from local produce;
- enjoy a home-made floral sauna or bath;
- take part in meditation sessions and long walks;
- get to know some wonderful people!
Our guide this weekend will be Jānis Vaivars, who has run his own biologic farm “Ragāres“, where he grows more than 100 types of medicinal plants and herbs, since 2008. In 2012, he won the ‘Senču aicinājums’ (‘ancestor’s call) prize. He inherited the farm and most of his knowledge from his grandmother, dr. Māra Vaivare, one of the pioneers of the Latvian organic farm movement.
When do we go?
We will leave from Riga (Ernestīnes iela 12) on Friday 27 June at 17:00, and return on Sunday 29 June around 19:00. (In our experience, it is usually possible to arrange to share a car with other participants.)
What do I need?
We are planning to stay in tents, so you will need to bring your own camping equipment (tent, mat, sleeping bag). In case of bad weather, we can move our beds indoors.
Also, bring a (linen or cotton) towel and swimsuit, warm clothes, and suitable outdoor shoes.
The entry fee is set at 70 euros (cost price), which includes accommodation, food, saunas, lectures and activities.
In case “homo ecos:” needs to arrange for your transport, this will cost 15 euros more.
SIGN UP NOW!
There are a limited number of places available, so sign up soon (at least before 2 June)! Fill out the REGISTRATION FORM here.
