New Meeting Hall Complete – now booking 2019 retreats

Blogpost published on: Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

After an extensive master planning process, capital campaign, renovations and new construction of several key buildings including new Guest Houses, we are thrilled to announce the completion of our latest project – a beautiful 3,500 square foot, ADA compliant Meeting Hall. The Meeting Hall was designed and built with the utmost care for aesthetics, natural light, materials, usability and function, and we feel we have succeeded at creating a unique space that will serve as a leading social change gathering place for the Bay Area.  This new meeting facility will enable OAEC to convene and host transformative retreats, workshops and strategic planning meetings for environmental and social justice change-makers for decades to come.

The building features:

  • 1450 square foot main conference hall
  • 385 square foot auxiliary meeting room
  • spacious courtyard and deck with panoramic views of the North Garden and Wildlands
  • comfortable lounge, reception office, and kitchen, plus several additional indoor and outdoor breakout meeting spaces
  • state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and video teleconferencing capabilities
  • permitted, modern composting toilets
