In brief: CF and environment

Depending on the severity of your cf, leading an active healthy lifestyle outside is not a fantasy.
Common sense will dictate avoidance germs by simple hand hygiene (wash, wipe, alcohol base hand gels). Knowing your CF treatment plan as per your pulmonologist/specialist is important for slowing down the progression/maintaining a more resilient defense against bacterial/chronic lung infection.

In brief: Sure

It is almost always good to work outside, as long as you use sun screen and wear a hat to keep the sun off.
If cold air (or polluted air) causes you to have bronchospasm, wait for a wamrer day or a non red air day. Working outside won't make you sicker unless you don't do your airway clearance when you are outside.
