About Us

Location

Weimar Institute is ideally located in the foothills of the Sierras, at about the 2,000 ft. elevation, above the valley fog and below the heavy snow. Entering the campus you see trees of many kinds, overarching beautiful lawns and flowerbeds causing one visitor to exclaim, “I just had to come up to the Weimar Gardens today!”

Cafeteria

Our cafeteria serves delicious food tailored to diabetics’ needs.
This diet consists of wholesome foods, prepared by our chefs. The lack of animal products and highly processed foods has a vitalizing effect on both the body and the mind.

The other part of the cafeteria is also open to visitors during the week and partially over the weekend.

Trails

A look at the Trail map shows you the five campus entrances to the trails area, and miles of trails that lead along the creeks and hillsides. It shows where the steep places are, so that you can choose the relatively level paths or more strenuous routes. Starting out among the ponderosa pines of the campus, you may find your way through oak woodlands, next to blackberry and grapevine thickets, across open meadows, into cedar groves with ferns, or along the creek with its willows and alder trees. In many places the vegetation arches over the path, and the temperature is ten or more degrees cooler than elsewhere, a relief in the summer. Or you might see people from local walking groups, or marathon runners, or people enjoying horseback riding on the trails where horses are permitted. And you might find NEWSTART guests walking for their health and enjoyment in accordance with the NEWSTART mantra, walk, walk, walk!
