For those who follow a healthy lifestyle as well showing concern for the health of our planet, the recently opened St Francis Wellness Centre is certainly proving a boon. The health shop situated above KC Properties in the ‘Old Village’ is proving extremely popular and have introduced a ‘ZERO-WASTE’ with a REFILL concept on products such as our honey, olive oil, body range, washing powder, buchu water, spices, vinegar and more. They will also be adding new products each week.

And there is more!

They are introducing ‘foodie Friday’s’ where they will have limited fresh organic vegetables on what is available on Dr Pepler’s farm, available to purchase. A message will be sent to their broadcast group each Thursday advising what is being harvested on the Thursday for sale on Friday. You cannot get fresher than that – picked Thursday –  enjoyed Friday!

To keep their clients informed they are creating a Whatsapp broadcast group where messages will be sent for those interested advising what is available. Pop in and give your details to Debbie should you wish to be included in the group.

St Francis Wellness Centre is also running a second workshop following the well-attended workshops last month. These will be held at the end of March over the time of the Autumn Equinox. They will be hosting Daniel Jardim for these workshops. Many of you may know Daniel from his cookbooks, ‘The Cake the Buddha Ate’ and ‘More Quiet Food’. Daniel was for many years the chef at the esteemed Buddhist Retreat Centre, otherwise known as the BRC, in Ixopo. Daniel will be running three workshops while he is with us, Details of the workshops are shown below and you can call Debbie to book your attendance but do it soon as these workshops will fill up very quickly.
