Celebrating people and the planet is in our nature.
At the heart of all Elephant Thoughts work is education, making Riverstone a place of learning and collaboration. We host educational programs and events that focus on:
- Sustainable Building
- Food Sustainability and Regenerative Farming
- Cultural Programs
- Arts and Music Festivals
- Environmental Science
- Collaborative Retreats for Non-Profit Organizations
On any day at Riverstone you might find a Buddhist Monk and a Métis Elder comparing notes, a renowned Indigenous Chef teaching a group of Native youth food foraging, or a group of Syrian refugee woman teaching culinary arts. Elephant Thoughts engages science to excite students about the learning process. Here, youth can discover the universe through telescopes or learn about stream ecology in the Saugeen.

Riverstone is proud to acknowledge the lands that we share at Riverstone Retreat have been occupied for over 8,000 years. These are the traditional territories of the Petun, and later the traditional territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and the members of the Three Fires Confederacy (Odawa, Potawatomi and Ojibway). These First Peoples are the past, present and future caretakers of this land. We also share these lands with many diverse peoples.
