Is it the tranquil sound of lapping waves or the sweet scent of coastal cedar forest that makes Hollyhock, a Canadian educational center, so magical? This rustic idyll on remote Cortes Island, north of Vancouver, exists to inspire, empower, and nourish people who strive to make the world a better place.

Commune with nature

Ramble rainforest trails, row at full moon through bioluminescent waters, attend a star talk, sail to a seabird colony, or flop in a weathered Adirondack chair beside the rocky, driftwood-strewn beach.

Get garden therapy



Hollyhock’s heart is its one-acre biodynamic garden, which attracts guests like bees. The organic vegetables, fruit, and herbs provide food for the mostly vegetarian meals, and flowers become breathtaking bouquets.
