The Watershed Center has a warmth that’s hard to put into words. While our organization was on retreat, we felt like we were actually a part of Watershed, and it was a part of us. I haven’t experienced anything quite like it at any other retreat center. It’s a home, a community, and a vital institution for our movements.
–Yotam Moram, The Wildfire Project
During my time at the Watershed, I felt like the two halves of me (who had barely shook hands before) met and united as one. Each class was invaluable, the food was nourishing, the space was comfortable and the people welcoming. Epic and life changing!
– Sara Kendall, WGXC Community Supported Radio
