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. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of National Parkland, its organic farm and gardens provide a serene environment for meetings, conferences, seminars, and workshops of up to 30 people. 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.
Facilities for Conferences, Seminars, Workshops and Retreats
The quiet atmosphere at Green Gulch is ideal for both concentrated work and creative activities. We offer your company or organization three well-maintained and versatile meeting facilities:
The Wheelwright Center
The Wheelwright Center is a meeting room with large windows in the midst of a beautiful redwood grove. The room is heated by a wood-burning stove and comfortably accommodates up to 25 people in a casual atmosphere, or 30 people classroom-style.
The Yurt is a multi-purpose round room with high ceilings, accommodating up to 25 people in a casual atmosphere, or 30 people classroom-style. This comfortable, more secluded meeting space has a carpeted floor and is heated with a wood-burning stove.
Still Water Hall
This new conference space became available this year. It is especially well suited for yoga retreats of up to 26 participants, and offers a comfortable space for 40 people in a classroom-style configuration.
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. (More details.)
