After visitors travel the gravel pathway leading to Grailville, they enter a cultural oasis made up of rich farmland, peaceful nature trails, organic gardens and a group of women dedicated to sustainable living and a holistic approach to life. The 315-acre environmental, education and retreat center tucked away in Loveland serves as a portal for personal reflection, renewal and growth.
Grailville is home to diversified workshops, programs and special events with simplistic yet enchanting guesthouses and meeting spaces to accommodate their program participants and community members. This year they celebrate seven decades of nurturing spirituality, female empowerment, ecological efforts and global solidarity.
Grailville is the United States headquarters of the Grail, an international women’s movement found in 20 countries. Grail members have a global commitment to social justice, the celebration of religion and spirituality and value in the care and protection of Earth. Grailville has served as a model for sustainable living since its inception in 1944, when U.S. Grail members moved onto the Loveland farmland and lived off of the acreage. Over the course of their history, Grail members have strived for self-sufficiency.
Grailville’s anniversary celebration takes place Saturday at 932 O’Bannonville Road, Loveland. Reservations and details: grailville.org
