2021-2022 Calender

Nature. Make. Grow. Breathe. Nourish.

At Wild Ivy Retreats we honour the seasons, let the wildness take charge, allow flowers to bloom, carefully forage the land that provides greens, berries and flowers to ordain our plant loving lunch table. 

Wild flowers are sown and bees kept to propagate flowers and harvest honey.

Our events inspire renewed relationships with nature, through gentle insight, connection and the expansion of our minds and senses; and to the earth through nourishment and nutrition. We’d like you to come on the journey with us as we develop a deeper connection together as a community. Time amongst nature has been proved to improve feelings of happiness, lower heart rates,  boost immune systems and offer feelings of comfort and positivity. Choose a creative retreat that suits you from our calender of events in 2022.

If you live far away, or want to join our family, you can be part of our  Membership Community and receive exclusive recipes, discount on events, craft, meditations, monthly foraging identification guides and more on our Patreon subscription page.

5 Wild Ivy Retreat Pillars

1. Nature : It's ingrained in our DNA from hunter gatherer times to be close to nature.  We gather under the bare sky, walking and adventuring into the hedgerows, trees and fields. to gather, forage, smell and touch our surrounding flora and nature space. 

2. Make:  Using the seasonal materials nature has provided us with, we create transient art works with nature, music, sounds, collect flowers for pressing, or create wild skin food or make foraged dishes to share. 

 

3. Grow: The cottage garden offers a wonderful stepping stone as a learning community space for growing our own food at home. We have fruits and vegetable for our guests to gather or dig from the earth or pluck from the trees to use for our own meals.

 

4. Breathe: The act of foraging slows us down as we tune into our senses and rediscover our power, connection and oneness with the surrounding sights, sounds and smells or the natural world. 

 

5. Nourish: Each retreat offers a different energy packed lunch; home grown grazing plates, nourishing vitality power bowls, summer picnics or winter soups and broths with home made bread. We promise whatever the season, you will nourished, rested and wowed by our living food!

"The vegan lunch was out of this world. The venue (both the outside space and the hall) were perfectly sized and beautifully decorated. The hosts, Caroline and Rosie, were also just brilliant. I arrived after a chaotic week and left feeling centred, balanced, grounded and re-energised. I will be booking onto more of these in the new year. Highly recommend."
