We’re a queer intentional community and retreat center in rural Northern California. We offer a diversity of programming, and also rent out our facility to folks hosting their own events. Friends of Groundswell can join our Cahoots program for more opportunities to participate and support our work.

Gatherings for our extended community are central to Groundswell’s reason for being. Building on the tradition of the Radical Faeries, we host several gatherings annually, celebrating seasonal change, heart-centered connection, queer healing, and revelry.

Work parties are a great way to contribute to our project and meet people in our community. Work is balanced with delicious meals and plenty of time for queer revelry.

April 26-May 1

A celebration of Spring,  of abundance,  of love. Together we celebrate the web of all life, our interconnection with each other. We dance with wild abandon, with joy, with sensuality. The land is calling you home. The community is gathering, and Beltane is waiting for you.


Into the Woods
May 24-27

Presented by Grace Towers in collaboration with Groundswell. Into the Woods is a Queer and Trans summer campout supporting intentional, intergenerational exchange via the arts.
