Project SEVA: Jammin'
July 17, 2017 - July 20, 2017
Summers are beautiful in Taos, NM. Imagine warm sunny days in the majestic beauty of Sangre de Christo mountains under a big blue sky and cool nights under the limitless blanket of bright stars in the comfort of Blue Sky Retreat Center in the historic San Geronimo Lodge. We have close to 20 fruit trees at Blue Sky and July is full of ripening apricots that are literally everywhere.

Help us gather up the harvest, and prepare apricot jams, chutneys and other preserves that you can come up with. It is a fun-filled two days of seva (selfless service), yoga, community, connection and fun followed up by 2 days of free time where you can explore all that Taos has to offer (hiking, white water rafting, fishing, hot air balloons, art galleries, visiting Native American Pueblo, churches, take a day trip to the colorful Santa Fe and so much more).
