Retreat meetings will be held at Los Poblanos, an inn / cultural center / organic farm located in Albuquerque’s Rio Grande valley. The original buildings were designed by John Gaw Meem (father of the Santa Fe Style) in the 1930s as a private residence on 25 acres in the Territorial Revival Style. It’s now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Los Poblanos Organics cultivates over 75 varieties of fruits and vegetables for local sale at the farm and by subscription.
Lodging for the Retreat will be 3.5 miles south at the Hotel Albuquerque. It is conveniently located next to Albuquerque’s Old Town, founded in 1706. Old Town contains numerous shops and restaurants often located on narrow passages or on intimate plazas. At the east edge of Old Town are the Albuquerque Museum of Art, Explora Science Museum, and the New Mexico Museum of Natural History. A few blocks north on the Rio Grande are the Botanical Gardens, Aquarium, and Zoo.
