The pavilion/cottage complex at Point Washington Preserve ("PWP") will not only host weddings and events but is truly a dual purpose event venue pavilion/cottage complex that will be used only only to host weddings, special events but science/engineering retreats as well.


South Walton's Southern Hybrid Homes and its nonprofit association, the Good Samaritan Institute ("GSI"), have proudly supported local education programs for the last 15 years. Specifically, programs that inspire young minds to consider career paths in science and engineering. "Scientist and engineers create the real wealth for our society" according to Doug Liles, GSI Director and Southern Hybrid Homes builder.


The Santa Rosa Project ("SRP") is one such program, will host top scientists and engineers from all over the world to participate in conferences to determine best practices for nine separate categories, including biology, cancer, chemistry, computer science, engineering, imaging, mathematics, microbiology and nanotechnology. These consensus best practices will be published on GSI's affiliate website bestinscience.com. SRP scientists and engineers will also have the opportunity to inspire young minds into considering similar career paths via the virtual mentor program. It has been said, "give a man a fish and he will eat for a day but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime". So we might modify this saying to "give a child science and engineering and he will benefit in the present but teach a child science and engineering and he and all of society will benefit in the future".
