A community of change-makers.

A weekend of play | connection | discovery.

Join us for the 9th Greenermind Summit!


The Greenermind Summit is an infamous yearly gathering in the Mendocino Woodlands, organized by a community of change-makers in the San Francisco Bay Area. It's one part adult summer camp, one part unconference, and one part restorative retreat.

Our 2018 event is happening June 14-17 in the Mendocino Woodlands.

Is there a talent show? Yup. Do we make music around the campfire? Yup. Will you learn about cutting-edge ways people are solving wicked problems like sanitation in the developing world, gender bias at work, oceanic plastic pollution, affordable housing policy, and more? Duh — it wouldn’t be Greenermind without some serious nerding out. 

At Greenermind you'll meet mission-driven people from diverse backgrounds. We are entrepreneurs, educators, designers, scientists, nonprofit leaders, corporate managers, artists, policy experts, front-line activists, and more. 

Your experience is exactly what you make it. You can dive into facilitated activities or relish unstructured time. The entire weekend is sourced from our stellar community; you’re invited to present a workshop, lead a hike, create art, or bring anything you’d like to share.

If you have passion to share, if you want to grow and explore, if your soul needs a pickup from this crazy world—join us. We hope to see you this year.

How did this get started?

The Greenermind Community emerged from a group of mission-driven professionals who got sick of boring work conferences with name badges and bad vibes. Everything we do at Greenermind Summit is the opposite of what you'd find at a typical conference. We wear costumes. We move our bodies. We sing, we play games, we help each other process feelings, we stay up until 4am dancing, spinning fire, and talking about mindfulness or carbon sequestration. It's a do-it-yourself TEDx in the woods, with art and music and a rockin' party. 

Important Details:

Event ScheduleThe Summit officially begins on Friday. We encourage you to arrive on Thursday if your schedule permits.

What's Included: Your ticket includes food and lodging from Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon as well as participation in all event activities. All breakfasts are BYO.

Kids: We want parents to be able to come to the Summit, so we offer paid childcare during the day, and parents work together to provide childcare in the evenings. The deadline for purchasing kids' tickets is May 22, so we can plan childcare and kids' activities.
