Location and Travel

EcoFarm Conference is held annually at the Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds, located at 800 Asilomar Ave, Pacific Grove, CA near beautiful 17-Mile Drive in Monterey County, California.

Asilomar's rich history dates back to its origins as a YWCA Leadership Camp built in 1913. Known as Monterey Peninsula's "Refuge by the Sea," the state park is located on 107 acres of state beach and conference grounds, within the quaint and scenic town of Pacific Grove. Asilomar is celebrated for its restored dune ecosystem and architectural significance, with cozy, historic structures designed by renowned architect Julia Morgan between 1913 and 1928.
