Farm & Garden Programs

Green Gulch Farm and Garden


Situated on the coast of Marin, on an inholding of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Green Gulch Farm includes seven acres of certified organic mixed vegetable fields, fruit trees, and flower gardens, all of which are open to visitors year-round. Tended by Zen students for 40 years, the deep, fertile clay loam soil, combined with mild summers and coastal fog, create the ideal conditions for many cool weather crops and ornamentals.

Farm and Garden Apprenticeship

Each spring since the Farm and Garden Apprenticeship Program’s founding in 1994, new farm and garden apprentices join our community and experience a unique opportunity to study themselves and the natural world through meditation practice and working directly with the land in the Green Gulch watershed.

Green Gulch at the Farmers’ Market

From May through October, Green Gulch Farm organic produce is available at the Mill Valley and SF Ferry Plaza farmers' markets. Enjoy the Green Gulch produce at these locations throughout the season.

The Garden

The garden at Green Gulch offers the opportunity to bring meditation and work practice into relationship with the lively world of plants.
