We will have 2 free afternoons where there are many activities such as hiking volcanoes, swimming, kayaking, horseback riding, kite boarding and cycling among others which will be organized by us. We will arrange airport transfers from the airport to the island for your comfort and safety. Our goal is to arrange group transport on the morning of March 2nd to the island in which the cost is included, but if you arrive at another time, you’ll be responsible to cover the cost of a private airport transfer which we will also arrange. This cost would be $175 USD, one way. Aim to arrive in the evening of March 1st and your hotel accommodation on the first night is covered.
All your meals, snacks, superfoods, tonics are included as well as a detailed, comprehensive textbook and organic, local and seasonal produce.
On the first day, we will arrive and get settled into our rooms and take a walk around the farm. From 5:00-8:00 PM we will have a meet and greet (with snacks) outlining the course and answering all questions you may have about how the course will roll. The rest of the course will run 8:00AM – 5:00 PM with a break between modules (each day this may be at different times). You’ll have homework and assignments to complete in the evenings as well however I will give you some time throughout the course to work on them – This is an intensive course but also extremely rewarding 🙂
There are a few small pre-requisites to beginning either course – first you must complete an online food safety module. It should take you less than an hour but its good to make sure everyone is on the same page regarding this important topic. Once you register, I’ll send you the link to the course.
You are also required to watch 4 films, What the Health, Cowspiracy, Forks over Knives and Food Matters. They will give you a new perspective and provide for some interesting conversation throughout the course.
If you’re keen to register now, typically, students pay the deposit ($750) immediately upon registration and then one instalment per month leading up to the course. Make sure you read the cancellation policy too before committing.
Once you’ve decided for sure, I will send you an official invoice. The monthly payment plan would vary and would be customized, depending on what course you choose. You can also pay in full upon registration.
