Our resident staff leads our community outreach, teaches and directs our local volunteer clown service, manages land-based educational programs, coordinates construction projects on the land, and organizes volunteers.
Gesundheit! resides on a 300-acre pristine tract of farm and mountain land in rural West Virginia, with gardens, meadows, creeks, waterfalls, a lake, and clean air and water. Our buildings are stimulating, yet the surrounding natural environment is even more inspiring. With more than two miles of trails through a beautiful hardwood forest, your stay can be spent in close proximity with nature. The beautiful Greenbrier River and an historic covered bridge is a 15 minute walk away. The small town of Hillsboro (birthplace of Nobel Prize winning author Pearl S. Buck) is 5 miles away.
