On Saturday, I went on a mini wellness retreat to Bilston Creek Farm with the Fairmont Empress for Global Wellness Day. I took an LA Limo bus from the Fairmont Empress over to Bilston Creek Farm in Metchosin. When I first arrived, I spent some time exploring the property, including the lavender farm, and bought myself some freshly made wildflower honey. I also explored the beautiful glamping tents they had on the property for retreats and weddings. After I explored the property, I went on a nature walk and wellness talk with co-founder of Bilston Creek Farm, neurologist and wellness expert, Dr. Andrew Penn. There was also a second option of doing a Yoga & Meditation Practice with Lululemon. After the activities, I had a lovely afternoon tea lunch and cocktails in the orchard courtesy of Fairmont Empress with a keynote wellness skin care speaker from Seaflora. It was so nice to get out of the city and learn about wellness. I can’t wait to head back to Bilston Creek farm to explore further.
