Gentle World operates two educational centers: one in the Far North of New Zealand, and one on the Big Island of Hawaii.
In each of these beautiful locations, our member-volunteers offer educational services free of charge, including seminars, private consultations, cooking classes, and delicious meals to those who are interested in learning more about how to eliminate the products of animal exploitation from their lives.
In addition to educating people about veganism, we teach interested individuals how to prepare delicious, nutritious food and how to grow fruits and vegetables without using any pesticides or animal by-products. We have also developed an extensive program of ‘practical ecology’, which enables us to demonstrate creative methods of reducing, re-using and recycling, to help others achieve a more self-sufficient, sustainable lifestyle.
At each of our centers, those who are interested in experiencing the Gentle World lifestyle are invited to participate in our visitor program as volunteers. Enthusiastic individuals are welcome to join us to learn about the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of veganism in a positive and supportive environment. By participating in the day-to-day workings of the center, visitors have the opportunity to deepen their educational experience by helping us to help others.
We welcome willing workers, and we look forward to meeting new people who are inspired to contribute toward building a gentle world. Click here to read what others have said about visiting Gentle World.
