Solfeggio’s Signature Educational Rainforest Hike

Learn about the amazing intricate web of life each of is a part of, from Jennifer Leigh Smith (AKA "Tree Jenny"), tropical forest expert and founder of Association of Community Carbon Trees (ACCT).  ACCT, is a world-model for socially responsible reforestation.  Solfeggio will donate $25 in each retreat participant’s name to support this amazing non-profit organization. Your $25 will plant a tree to help off-set the carbon dioxide generated by your air travel.

La Reina Cooperative Tour & Medicial Plant Class

Tree Jenny will escort us to the little village of La Reina, where a core group of ACCT’s hardest working members will give us a tour of their operations. We will have an organic lunch straight from their farms, and they’ll crank up the trapiche and make us fresh cane juice full of vitamins and minerals. You’ll also have an opportunity to view their wonderful collection of Pre-Columbian artifacts all found in the area around their village.

"Join us in the ACCT rainforest tree nursery and get your hands in the dirt. Participate in activities to produce over 85 species of rainforest trees. Clean and prepare seeds, mix compost and fill tree bags with soil, transplant baby trees, weed and water young trees. Be part of a collaborative process to stop rainforest deforestation. As part of a purpose inspired lifestyle, giving back to the Earth creates balance!”
