Hands-on Learning

Our Educational Centers

Gentle World operates two vegan educational centers – one in Hawaii and one in New Zealand. These locations are the base for the volunteer-members that run Gentle World, and for the on-site educational programs where visitor-volunteers learn all about Gentle World’s model of veganic growing, practical conservation, and cooperative vegan living.

Both our centers receive people from all over the globe. Our visitors range from long-time vegans, to those who have never met a vegan or thought about becoming one.

In a positive and supportive environment, our guests are given the opportunity to learn about the whys and hows of veganism from our team, all of whom have been vegan for anywhere from 20 to 50 years. This unique model has endured for four decades, and has helped numerous people to become vegan.

In an informal atmosphere, the education includes veganic gardening, easy and delicious vegan food preparation, and integrated creative ecology lessons; like catching rainwater for laundry, dealing with waste in a responsible manner, and re-using or repurposing every resource that we can.
