Wednesday, April 1st was the second week in a row that fences were not erected in parking lot #4 next to the Santa Cruz Community Farmer's Market. For the past six months, mesh fencing has been used to deter people from gathering and drumming below the magnolia trees. Brent, a longtime and well-known drummer, reports that an experimental agreement has been reached between himself and Santa Cruz Police Department Sergeant Mike Harms.

To ensure the success and longevity of the drum circle and farmer's market, Brent posted signs around parking lot #4 and the market with nine guidelines that ask people to help manage and maintain the scene.
