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.

Salvar El Jardín de la Comunidad de la Playa

Creemos que El Jardín de la Comunidad de la Playa es un recurso vital para la comunidad. Perder, fragmentar, o reubicar el jardín dañaria este espacio lo cual es único en su prosperidad y su importancia por la producción de alimentos y la participación de la comunidad. Pedimos a la ciudad de Santa Cruz y la Santa Cruz Seaside Company para colaborar con los miembros de la comunidad para encontrar una solución a largo plazo para mantener la totalidad del jardín abierto como espacio público.
