This retreat has a raw food menu on the first and last days to ease you into and out of the 5 day organic juice cleanse. Raw food meals and juices are thoughtfully and lovingly created by Tasha, in consultation with nutrition expert, Lisa Rae Tarr and will astound you with their unbelievably delicious tastes and variety, and inspire you to a new way of feeding yourself and your family.
We use locally sourced, organically grown fruit and vegetables, as we've found that high quality, fresh produce offers you the deepest and most complete cleanse, and restores your body to a state of balance and satisfied nourishment.
We grow our own wheatgrass and microgreens, vibrant with life force and phytonutrients for only-just-harvested plant power. Preferring supplements from natural sources, we wild harvest local herbs and brew our own alkalising apple cider vinegar tonic.
Feeding yourself cleanly, lightly and naturally for a full 8 days allows you to experience your body in a state of wellness that you may never have felt before.
