The Monastery of St. Gertrude is run by the Benedictine Sisters of Idaho. They adopted a “philosophy of land use” for their 1,400 acres, part of the homeland of the Nez Perce Native American people. Their philosophy calls the sisters to care for land that was entrusted to them by God, to live harmoniously with the rest of creation and to promote reverential and responsible stewardship. They adopt an environmentally friendly lifestyle, participate in ecological healing efforts, educate themselves about ecology, balance ecological land management with profitable land use and maintain a spirit of reverence and an environment of peace. The monastery is in Cottonwood, Idaho.
