The legend of the beautiful Apple Isle of Avalon dates back to the days of King Arthur and the chivalrous quest for the Holy Grail. Avalon is the place where Heaven meets Earth, the equivalent of Shambhala, the New Jerusalem, or what other cultural traditions have called the enlightened society. The abundance of Avalon and the magical Grail cup remain today as enduring symbols of a restored, harmonious future for the planet. Here amid the Okanagan's shimmering waters, sudden mists and orchard groves, we aspire towards a new renaissance of global culture, entering a Golden Age of peace, creativity and stewardship.
