The Commonweal Garden is a 17-acre farm located in Bolinas, on the beautiful and rugged California Coast. We work in collaboration with Commonweal, a health and environment research institute and retreat center in Bolinas.
The farm is being transformed into a permaculture model of human beings living in harmony with the earth.
Nestled into its own quiet valley, the site features registered organic gardens, multiple grey water systems, production green house, ponds, seasonal stream, springs, a yurt classroom, goats and chickens, and several natural building features such as cob benches, light straw clay walls, and earthen plasters.
This beautiful site is the venue for our 4 Seasons Permaculture Design Course intensive, wildcrafting series, volunteer days, as well as other workshops. Commonweal Garden is also a primary site for our Regenerative Design & Nature Awareness (RDNA) Program, where course participants have installed grey water systems, a yurt classroom, a light-straw clay "Chicken Palace" and more.
Please note: this is also a private residence, so we ask you not to visit on other days unannounced. Thanks!
