The Global Garden journey. Here we go.

Pack your bags, let’s wander the Weleda World. From March to June it’s time to embark on a carbon-neutral journey to eleven Weleda bucket-list worthy locations around the world. Colourful pomegranate shrubs in Italy, gardens 1200 metres above sea level in Argentina…. I get excited just thinking about it. Weleda Global Garden is a modern-day version of the Roman ‘Grand Tour’. A journey of curiosity, exploration and discovery learning all about the stories and people behind Weleda. Let’s experience each Weleda location together – including biodynamic gardens, sourcing projects, biodiversity projects and anthroposophy. Together, we’ll meet the gardeners and growers, learning about the natural plant ingredients, bee projects, spa treatments, and Steiner himself. ‘I’ll be your virtual tour guide – your eyes, your ears and your hands so you can discover the Weleda Global Garden whilst I do.’ But, before we get started I bet you want to know where we are heading.     • Sydney / Australia                                      …

Meet the Weleda Global Garden winner

Hi everyone. I’m Lauren Doolan, a Australian blogger also known as Micro Adventurist. Nice to meet you all. On weekdays I work as a Creative Director, on weekends on my blog and social channels @Micro_Adventurist. Not that it feels like work.  I’m an endlessly curious blogger, camera in hand, hunting out the most exciting, soul soaring, bite-size adventures in my own backyard of Melbourne and beyond. It’s my mission to discover the best weekend wanders that inspires us all to disconnect the phone, reconnect from nature and escape the ordinary. So, what is a Micro Adventure you ask? It’s a simple, affordable, adrenalin pumping adventure anyone can take over a weekend, a day, even an afternoon, rather than waiting for a two week block of holidays. ‘We don’t work hard all week to sit on the couch, right!’ Linda Ellis’ poem, ‘The Dash’ had a big impact on me. It’s about how we start and end our lives with only a date. That ‘our life’ is distilled down to the tiny little ‘–‘ or ‘Dash’ …

Hi from Lauren

Hi everyone. I’m Lauren, an Australian blogger also known as Micro Adventurist. And I’m the lucky winner of the Weleda Global Garden competition. I’m an endlessly curious blogger, camera in hand, hunting out the most exciting, soul soaring, bite-size adventures in my own backyard of Melbourne and beyond. It’s my mission to help people explore the outdoors, to inspires us all to disconnect the phone, reconnect from nature and escape the ordinary. ‘I can’t wait to your virtual tour guide of the Weleda Global Garden. I’m honoured to be your eyes, ears and hands so you can experience and learn all about a world leading manufacturer of natural and organic skin care and anthroposophic medicines whilst I do.’ I hope you come on the journey with me. Bring the adventure on! Love, Lauren

What to expect on the trip of a lifetime.

There are many quotes along the lines of ‘No expectations, no disappointments’. But there’s no need to worry about that when it comes to the Weleda Global Garden trip. People have asked me what my expectations are for the trip… and to be honest I only have one. And that is to grow. A lot. Weleda, anthroposophic medicine, biodynamic farming not to mention film making, photography and editing are all new worlds for me. ‘My philosophy is to expect nothing and appreciate everything. To give everything my 100% best go and to be grateful for every step of this journey.’ Just because I’m trying to go into the trip without expectations doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have them! The Weleda team have got a great line up of experiences planned. I can’t help myself but share some of them with you. So, feel free to have great expectations… you will not be disappointed. Sydney / Australia Students will become the teachers when we learn about the importance of protecting nature’s hardest working pollinators at the Weleda …
