The "Nothing Tastes Better Than Raw" Workshop

This Weekend, May 18th and 19th, 2013 in Ojai, California. (Just an hour up the coast from Los Angeles, and 30 minutes on Hwy 33 from Ventura to the magical high mountain desert town of Ojai).

The Garden Diet is hosting a two-day intensive workshop in Ojai, CA for you to experience just how good raw food can taste!

Experience two days of raw food education, inspiration and fun connections in the gorgeous natural beauty of the Ojai Valley at unbelievably low rates!

Join long-term raw vegan family and Master Raw Chef Storm Talifero and get motivated and empowered to launch in to your own raw vegan lifestyle!

I can’t tell you how many people come on our retreats and are able to stay raw easily after seeing how effortless it can be.

As we don’t do retreats any more, this workshop is a rare opportunity to have the experience of joining in with a raw family lifestyle in progress.

Where: Private Estate in Ojai, CA
