Autumn in the country – images from our retreat

What a treat it was to once again escape to Foragers in Pemberton for our Autumn 2013 weekend retreat (especially as my parents were kind enough to look after our kids!)

Here’s a little taste of what was on offer…

Sophie and Chris Zalokar welcomed us with the wood-fired oven lit for our arrival late on Friday afternoon. To accompany our wine tasting, we were treated to spelt crust flat-bread style pizzas with delicious vege toppings like Maris Piper potato, broccoli and kale, plus an assortment of tasty condiments.

Retreat to the country for fun, food & fitness

We’re super excited about our first retreat weekend for 2013!

It’s happening again at the exquisite Foragers, Pemberton in the Southern Forests region of WA, from the 10th-12th May (Mother’s Day weekend). You can find all the details on our Retreats page, and if you’d like to join us, get in touch quickly, as places are filling up. We’re especially delighted that several of our guests from last year had such a fabulous time that they’ve re-booked to come again – we think that says it all!

It’s probably timely to share some photos and insights from last year’s Spring Retreat – but don’t just take our word for it – have a peek at the deliciously foodie blog, Carolanne’s Kitchen for a review from one of our guests (she’s also kindly agreed to share some gorgeous pics of the weekend in this space, so thank you to Carolanne – currently cooking up a storm back in Ireland!)

Foragers – Pemberton

When planning our business, we envisaged being able to offer a series of special events including a weekend retreat, and we’re delighted to announce that it’s about to become a reality this spring…

When we say retreat, we’re not talking weight loss camp or gruelling military boot camp, or even spa weekend. What we had in mind was a relaxed gathering of like-minded people learning about and sharing in good food and wine – fresh, seasonal and locally sourced. Exercise would play a part, but mostly in combination with exploring the natural environment (so you don’t actually notice it) and to build a hearty appetite that makes good food taste even better! The idea is for guests to come away feeling energised and inspired to maintain that same feeling at home.
