Conference Center at Green Gulch: Facilities, Rates, & Policies

Green Gulch Farms Conference Center


Green Gulch Farm Conference and Retreat Center is located in a beautiful coastal valley just a short drive north of the Golden Gate Bridge, in Marin County, CA. Green Gulch is located between Sausalito and Stinson Beach in Marin County, just north of San Francisco, in a valley that opens out onto the Pacific Ocean. (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 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. All conference, workshop and retreat guests are welcome to join the Green Gulch community for morning and evening meditation and for Sunday morning lectures, or as volunteers in our daily work.
