Foraging workshop with our expert, 2 hours: Discover nutrient dense wild plants which help to strengthen your immune system and aid in harmonising our bodies and minds. You will discover the nutritional benefits, culinary, medicinal and survival uses of plants and 'weeds' as you wander.
Morning tea: Sample some foraged fare with some hot herbal tea.
Ancient forest highlights tour, 50 minutes: As we make our way into Maungatautari's Southern Enclosure, hear from Sanctuary Mountain staff about the birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees and what makes the conservation project at Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari truly special as the largest mainland ecological island in the world!
Lunch: Buffet style lunch at our bush boardroom table, nestled in the bush under the canopy, with the birds for company.
Mindful hike, 2 hours: Focus on being mindful in nature to destress, tune in to the rhythm of your intuition and reduce cluttered and unproductive thinking. Kylie will give your team all the tools they need to engage all their senses, and tap into the unconscious wilderness of our brain. This is a powerful way to destress, reconnect and promote divergent thinking.
Afternoon tea, 30 minutes: Light refreshments and hot drinks to conclude the day with some shared reflection.
Programme runs from 8.30am or 9am and finishes at 3.30 or 4pm.
NOTE: We are privileged to be able to run our wild food foraging workshops at Maungatautari but nothing is harvested from the maunga.
