“I’m so pleased to be able to bring together a dedicated and professional team to put this retreat together, so many people in Samoa can benefit from this lifestyle and this is our way to help show how it can be done.”

Participants at the retreat will be given demonstrations on how to prepare quick and easy Whole Plant Food Based meals that nourish the body and support health. 

Presentations on the benefits of this lifestyle will be given throughout the two and a half days by Dr. Walter Vermeulen, who is promoting Whole Food Plant Based nutrition in Samoa.
