This is what workshop participants say about their time at KoruKai Herb Farm
"If you want to turn back time and learn to eat without the supermarket fast forward to meeting up with Cornelia and Kai at their workshops. Best day in a beautiful location. Fulfilling many needs, nutrition, spirituality, knowledge and friendship. Came away a better person."
"The day was inspiring and a lot of fun, with many good things to learn about making healthy food - everything starting with creating good soil to ways to prepare living and nutritious fermented food! Really enjoyed meeting Cornelia and her family and the other workshop participants - what an interesting bunch of people! The lunch was truly wonderful too."
"A clear, concise and well-constructed course clearly demonstrating the Art of Cheese-making. The course was structured to suit both the novice and those who may have been looking to expand on their own knowledge. The use of a home environment for teaching purposes clearly demonstrated what can be achieved within the students own home kitchen by simply following the instructions supplied in your excellent take-home handout. This was an informative well-delivered course run in a very relaxed and inclusive environment giving more than value for money. The communal lunch was a treat for the taste buds."
"Thank you for a wonderful day yesterday. We really enjoyed your workshop and your lovely home and surroundings. Your introduction and telling us your personal background got me very enthusiastic. You and your family are heroes. The more people that attend this workshop or hear your message the better. It would be a dream for me to be able to provide all the vegetables for my family, but you and this workshop showed me it is possible. I think your coverage was spot on, you made room for questions but did not get too distracted from the time. I’m sure your notes will be my source of knowledge- I think I will need to get them laminated. Thank you for being a guiding figure; we need thousands of people like you so we can turn the way food is produced and the way we look at sustainability around."
