A community of practice 

The Toru Trail is about hands-on teaching and learning from each other; involving willing hosts and eager interns; resulting in self-responsible and self-designed practical learning journeys throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.

It is hosted by Toru Education, which stands for

  • providing experiential learning opportunities which nurture people, planet and spirit”, and

  • supporting and witnessing the authentic unfolding of each others’ unique life stories and the value of practical learning when pondering one’s next steps at a “What’s next?” moment at a crossroad in life.
