Mission Statement

Surprise Farm Retreat Center offers educational programs in the surround of nature, organic farming, and heritage sites. The experience of being in place, with creative intentional community, encourages well-being. Our Mission includes learning from each other about meaning and purpose, in workshops and around the fire-pit. We seek a caring and sustainable interaction between human nature and Nature, inviting Nature to heal us.


Surprise Farm Retreat Center (SFRC) is an educational organization offering workshops, seminars, and discussion groups on the relationships between nature, culture, community, self, and well-being.

With educators from the Center, and in collaboration with others, we seek to provide meaningful and effective service to individuals and society. Programs (activities, workshops and events) provide experiential education with the following attributes:

  • The physical surround will provide entrance for philosophical ideas and meaning-making regarding our current existence in place.

  • An educational structure will provide service for people of all backgrounds and interests,

    • to explore our place in nature, discuss our backgrounds, relationship and ideas; and

    • to co-create activities, art, rituals and healing in a community of common values and experiences.

  • While offering our workshops, we will keep the idea of sustainable experience design in mind. We strive to co-create sustainable (environmental, social and economic) experiences that have lasting positive impact on individual and social well-being (Sustainable Community Development).
