Gary and Adele from RiverRidge Retreat in The Catlins, Otago.


Gary and Adele's Motivation

Gary and Adele are grateful they can give in other ways

1. On a Social Level

“We are grateful to have the opportunity to provide a positive impact on the lives of people in our local, national and global communities”

RiverRidge Retreat is a member of B1G1 (BUY 1 GIVE 1). Each time a social event is held at RiverRidge Retreat a certain percentage of the earnings is passed on to a worthy ‘cause that matters’. The causes we like to help include;

  • Climate change
  • Poverty
Social level

2. On an Environmental Level

Truly being aware of the pressures on ‘the grid’ has inspired Gary and Adele towards having a vision of total self – sustainability – currently, the venue relies solely on rain water and is well on its way to being 100% hydro powered by utilising the river running through the grounds.

You and your families and friends can unwind and relax in Nature’s Paradise, knowing you are leaving a ‘zero’ footprint.
