We invite you to join the community for our Watershed Work Week. Please come as our guests and help care for the 115-acre valley with an eye to preserving and increasing our native habitats, preventing erosion, caring for our Salmonid creek, and maintaining and creating local Green Gulch trails.
I learn again and again how alive and responsive to nature children are. ... It is such a pleasure to share the basic joy of knowing where one’s food comes from. You can grow it, pick it, eat it. It's that simple. —Sukey Parmelee, Educational Outreach Coordinator, Green Gulch
Every season, along with our colleagues at Muir Woods National Monument, we offer a collaborative series of classes, walks, work parties and celebrations in honor of the Redwood Creek Watershed where we live and practice.
In 1972 Green Gulch Farm became part of the San Francisco Zen Center, a non-profit religious organization dedicated to the practice and study of Zen Buddhism in the Soto Zen lineage as conveyed by its founding teacher, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. Situated on the coast of Marin, on an inholding of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Green Gulch includes seven acres of certified organic mixed vegetable fields, fruit trees, and flower gardens, all of which are open to visitors year-round.
We begin taking applications in June and will continue to accept applications until we have a full cohort of applicants, but generally applications should be in by mid-January for the following season’s Apprenticeship Program (April-October). We are sorry not to be able to respond to application inquiries from February through May.
Please read and be familiar with all the information on the web site related to the Program before applying.
Green Gulch Farm organic produce is available seasonally, from May through October.
Green Gulch Farm will return to the Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market on Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday, May 26, 2012. We will be in our usual place with our wonderful produce. We hope to see you there on Saturday and throughout the season until mid-October..
