The Lodge at Woodloch has always been known for its focus on nature. Regular workshops will be an integral part of the activities calendar including cultural practices and seasonal tips and suggestions. With the help of Master Gardener, Alison Peck, The Lodge is giving guests the opportunity to "get their hands dirty" - a natural fit with the spa's philosophy of personal awakening. Alison is also available for one-on-one sessions for guests looking for advice on growing a successful garden, whether on a fire-escape in New York City or in a lush backyard in the suburbs.
