The invitation

A time for change:

Most ecologically-minded people agree that we have to make radical shifts in the way we live in order for our world to survive, to change from one devastated by over-consumption to one that is sustainable and which can thrive.

It can be scary. It can be demanding. Sometimes a sense of helplessness prevails – as if there is not much you can do at a personal level.
Lori Forsyth and Bruce Wallace invite you to challenge that attitude by showing you just how much you can do, while still living a ‘normal’ lifestyle. You do not have to go ‘back to the land’ or become a ‘long haired hippie’ to live more sustainably and reduce your carbon footprint.

By participating in an Eco Living Experience Weekend on Waiheke Island with Lori and Bruce you will have a chance to experience sustainable living in an ambiance of comfort and style as well as commitment and dedication.
