Welcome


Restoring health one garden box at a time

 

Health begins with the food we eat.

  • Studies have shown that we would have to eat eight oranges today to receive the same amount of Vitamin A that our grandparents got from eating one.

  • While Organic produce may protect us from harmful chemicals and unsustainable farming practices, it has not consistently tested higher in nutrient density than conventional produce and is considerably more expensive.

  • We have concluded that the best way to guarantee safe, healthful food without breaking the bank is too grow your own vegetables. 

 

Backyard Food farms can show you how.

About


We are dedicated to living healthy lives filled with passion.

 

Zach and Iris met in Brazil and moved to the Big Island of Hawaii as the directors of Gingerhill Farm Retreat. They encourage guests to unplug from the noise of their hectic lives and follow a structured daily routine of meditation, exercise, farming, yoga and cooking. Their dream is that people return to a simpler life based on community, sustainability, spirituality and health. 

 

Iris Lami felt called to yoga when she was fifteen years old. Growing up hiking the breathtaking trails and perfect beaches of Florianopolis, Brazil, practicing yoga was yet another way to connect with Nature. In 2008 she received a Training and Development in Yoga and Meditation Certification with Marco Shultz and in 2010 she completed her training in Ayurvedic Therapy. Iris leads a powerful, Vinyasa-inspired class that combines her love of movement with the technical practice of yoga. Her goal is to teach her students to embrace the divine within.

“For the first 35 years of my life, physical training was my passion” says Zachary Nathan, ex-fireman and martial arts instructor turned farmer. “I came late to farming, but it has shifted my focus from physique to concerns of nutrition, efficient body mechanics and longevity of life. A beautiful body is a good start, but clean, nutrient-dense foods, improved flexibility, and clarity of mind ward off sickness and injury and improve the quality of the rest of our lives.”
