Ridge to Reef Excursions are designed to convert the energetic inputs from tourism into calories of sustainably grown food for the benefit of host vegetative, marine, and human communities across a local watershed scale. Visitors learn organic permaculture farming skills and then use them at local sustainable farms and community gardens.
