Elohee Retreat Center: Ecological Design Collaboration

LRGformat

A destination healing retreat center, sited on over 200 gorgeous acres in the southern Blue Ridge mountains, will host 100 participants for a car-free stay.  As an ecological design collaboration, the retreat center facility was designed to include: miles of hiking trails, a comprehensive rainwater-harvesting and passive irrigation system, a spa with an essential oil garden for on-site distillation, a natural swimming pond, teaching studios for the arts, yoga and meditation huts.  Food will be produced on-site at several garden sites throughout the property:  an organic kitchen garden, polyculture orchard, culinary, tea and medicinal plants garden, an edible flower allele, and native medicinal trail walks.  Also, a Cherokee medicine wheel labyrinth garden, various pollinator meadows, cut flower gardens, habitat restoration plantings and native plantings identified as local to the area’s ecosystem are featured.  What a project!  We’re thrilled to be a part.
