It is frequently ranked among the top ten best places to live in the United States, and is connected to the world by Denver International Airport, rated best large airport in the US.

In addition to Anthroposophical communities in Boulder and Denver, the Colorado Front Range area supports five elementary Waldorf Schools, three Waldorf high schools (two of which are in nearby Boulder), several independent Waldorf Kindergartens and numerous Waldorf home and day groups, several biodynamic farms (including the one on our campus) and a variety of Anthroposophical study groups and initiatives.
