Upcoming Retreat Offerings: Aug 29 – Sept 4, 2020

Join us at Gingerhill Farm Retreat! It’s located on five acres of organic orchards and gardens nestled just above the famous Kealakekua Bay. We chose this property because of its deep volcanic soil, ideal elevation, and breathtaking ocean views. Now that the gardens and orchards are mature, we love being able to harvest a huge variety of nutrient-dense food from our land. Visitors are always blown away by our Garden of Eden-style food forests. Take a stroll around the farm and say hi to the animals. Hike down to the Bay and swim with the Dolphins. Gingerhill Farm offers an exotic escape from the hustle and bustle of 21st-century living.

I’m traveling alone. Can I share an accommodation with another retreat participant?

Yes, absolutely! We will work to pair you with other solo travelers to the best of our ability. Please notify us as to your preference between apartment-style and dormitory-style accommodations. Note, however, that we cannot guarantee that the accommodation you are seeking will be available upon the time of booking.

Should I rent a vehicle?

We highly encourage our guests to rent a vehicle to use during scheduled personal hours. However, if you would prefer to spend your personal time on-site at our yoga retreat center, we do provide airport transportation for an additional charge. Note that we do not provide any additional transportation unless you are experiencing a medical emergency.

What is the weather like in Kealakekua?

The weather is wonderful in Kealakekua! Temperature fluctuates between 70 and 80 degrees, dipping into the upper 60’s at night. Mornings are typically sunny, but light afternoon showers are common, so please bring a rain jacket and water resistant shoes for your comfort.

What kind of activities do we do in the garden?

Garden activities will consist mainly of touring the property, identifying fruits and vegetables, and harvesting for meals. You will have the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of tropical fruits, vegetables, and herbs, including how to grow and prepare them for optimum nutritional value. Don’t worry–we won’t put you to work with a pick axe! We do, however, ask that you be in good physical condition and pack sturdy shoes, as our property is hilly.

What kind of food do you serve on the property?

We take care to source healthy ingredients of the highest quality to prepare delicious and nutritionally dense meals. Our meals are predominantly plant-based and include fresh greens, herbs, root vegetables, and tree fruit from our farm. A typical meal will likely consist of a fresh green salad, fermented vegetables, cooked grains, and cooked vegetables. We are not a vegan farm, and many of our meals include organic butter and cheese, farm-fresh eggs, and the occasional well sourced meat, but we are happy to alter our menu to accommodate vegetarians and vegans. All of our fare is organic, gluten free, and Ayurvedic.
