Save The Beach Flats Garden

We believe that the Beach Flats Community Garden is a vital community resource. Loss, fragmentation or relocation of the garden would irreparably damage this thriving and unique space of food production and community engagement. We ask the City of Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz Seaside Company to work together with members of the community to find a long-term solution for keeping the entirety of the garden open as a public space.

1,661 Jessica P. This garden is more then just a plot of vegetables. It is a community. It is a family, a lifestyle and it puts fresh and healthy food on families plates. This Garden is essential to this Santa Cruz community and it should be supported and protected to keep our community healthy and happy. Sep 27, 2016
1,660 Margaret B. As a former Santa Cruzan I remember the eyesore so many vacant Seaside properties were Then the Community took it on.The people who garden here nurture the soil and keep it healthy. It rewards them for their hard work. Perhaps Seaside Company should consider a partnership with the gardeners to cultivate plants for the Boardwalk. Don't they have other property? Jul 28, 2016
1,659 Marielle M. The garden operates in a beneficial way to the community. To take the garden away emphasizes that Santa Cruz doesn't truly care at its core about being a sustainable, eco-friendly, inclusive city and is more interested in digging its white upper-class privileged claws into spaces that don't belong to them. Who are the good guys? Jun 06, 2016

1,654 Julia C. This garden is a crucial part of the Beach Flats community and offers such a great opportunity for people to eat healthier, gain experience, and get to know each other! This is what Santa Cruz has always been about. To try to destroy something so beautiful you are going against the very reasons so many people have chosen to make Santa Cruz their home! May 05, 2016
