Green Gulch Farm Conference and Retreat Center is located in a beautiful coastal valley that opens out onto the Pacific Ocean, just a short drive north of San Francisco. [Getting here] Surrounded by hundreds of acres of National Parkland, its organic farm and gardens provide a serene environment for meetings, conferences, seminars, and workshops. The conference center, offering delicious vegetarian meals and supported by an attentive staff, is complemented by one of the Bay Area’s most inspiring natural settings. Muir Beach is just a 20-minute walk away, and the surrounding hills offer miles of trails up and down the coast and into nearby Muir Woods National Monument.

As a traditional monastic Zen Buddhist practice center, Green Gulch also welcomes guests to take advantage of the peaceful feeling and natural rhythms of temple life to support their individual or group retreat.
