Gathering Vision Statement:  To weave our individual threads of experience and practices into a collective network that is actively engaged both locally and globally in the pursuit of justice, liberation, and support for our planet and all it’s creatures. 

We are really looking forward to Gathering.

There is a meeting space for 75-125 people, a dining room and up to 3 break out spaces available.   The Meadowwood Conference Center is fully heated for year round usage. Attached to Meadowwood is  Pierce Lodge where there are comfortable bedrooms, complete with bathroom and the Lodge is heated for year round use.
