Angelic Organics holds weekend wellness retreat Labor Day weekend

Staff Report

Angelic Organics Learning Center is offering their first weekend retreat dedicated to wellness this coming Labor Day weekend. Participants will harvest produce from Angelic Organics Farm, practice yoga and meditation, take a relaxing hike through the beautiful countryside, and more. Participants will learn about topics such as superfoods and eating for energy, while also preparing wholesome meals using fresh organic produce and other local ingredients.

“So often, we get caught up in busy, over-scheduled, and hectic lives,” said Amanda Skrip, acclaimed health coach and natural foods chef, who is the main instructor for the weekend. “To be able to ‘push a reset button’ by devoting a few days to wellness, is really a gift.”

Angelic Organics Learning Center is located on Angelic Organics Farm – 186 acres of majestic land in Caledonia, Illinois. The Learning Center and Farm create the perfect setting for exploring health and wellness. The site is not only home to one of the oldest community supported agriculture farms in the United States, but it also includes 70 acres of wild space, a portion of Kinnikinnick Creek and a campsite.

“I love the idea of having people step out of their comfort zone and connect with the food they eat, nature – and themselves,” said Skrip. “Participants will return to their lives with a newfound understanding and appreciation for not only the food they eat — but their general health and well-being.” Skrip has been featured in Daily Candy, Vital Juice, Mindful Metropolis and has appeared on I Am Healthy Radio, NBC Chicago and You and Me This Morning.

Participants must register in advance at learngrowconnect.org/wellness. Yoga is suitable for all levels and is taught by Angelic Organics Learning Center’s Senior Program Director Deb Crockett, who trained at Prana Vinyasa Flow. Local accommodations and onsite camping available. The cost for the retreat is $200 per person. Meals and healthy snacks are included.

Angelic Organics Learning Center & Farm is located at 1547 Rockton Road in Caledonia.
