Sustainable Energy in Motion Bicycle Tour – tours are set up for traveling one, two, or three weeks. Riders will visit organic farms, a land trust, a visionary community school, and also have an opportunity to join in on several educational hands-on activities with Oregon’s best nature building communities. The tours are designed to challenge and inspire, empower with knowledge of what is possible, and facilitate incredible social change. A third to half of the time is spent biking with the rest spent in discussion, doing service projects or resting from all the riding!

Balenbouche Estate, St. Lucia

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Estatehouse If you’re on St. Lucia, have been working yourself to the bone and need a break from it all, click the link below.

The Balenbouche Estate, a family owned property and St. Lucia Heritage Site, is a former sugar cane plantation. Under the care and management of the Lawaetz family since 1965, it has been constantly developing into a desirable tourism destination for the island.

Through the use of low tech (fans rather than a/c, mosquito nets instead of screens), solar water heating, re-directed rainwater, and conservation a very natural level of comfort is achieved. They have worked to enhance their environmental, conservation, and alternative energy programs with the goal of becoming largely self-sufficient in the near future.

The community involvement and educational projects sponsored and or supported by Balenbouche are a very strong part of what makes this a special place to be (see their “activities” page at link below). They’re working hard for responsible tourism and we give them our green thumbs up!
