We were made to be outdoors

Updated: Jan 15

We were made to be outdoors. Sure, we need shelter and clothing, but we thrive with fresh air and daylight. There's a reason that Paradise is usually pictured as a garden and not as a cubicle or a bedroom. Scientists are finally catching on to the fact that human beings are fundamentally "animals living in nature," and are actually quantifying the observable health benefits of even brief periods of involvement with the great outdoors. Our re-creation vacation features regular visits to the natural environment at Spring Haven Farm. Simply walking in beauty or maybe working with various aspects of life on the farm.
