I learned a lot new items about soap…. that was really surprising to me….And Marcia and Eric are a fantastic “team”….. their knowledge, their interaction, their patience…..
I just loved to BE in the atmosphere they were creating! A cosy afternoon with a lot of joy and learning!
The Mount of Oaks for me is the lovely people and animals, good conversations, tranquility, beautiful nature, delicious food and learning new things (especially about natural building)
5 star experience, well actually a 5 heart experience!!!
