Sunday, 29 March 2009 through Saturday, 4 April 2009.
EcoReality members, prospective members, and scheduled/booked guests. We are hoping that participants will be able to attend most or all of the retreat, and not expect to "drop in" for a day or two.
EcoReality (how to get to EcoReality) and other Salt Spring locations.
The expressed primary goal is an opportunity for non-resident members and guests to have an extended opportunity to become better acquainted with each other and resident members. Secondary goals are to get some work done!
