Beach Flats Community Center
133 Leibrandt Ave, Santa Cruz, California 95060
Beach Flats Garden is a space for community, food security, and the passing of cultural and agricultural knowledges. However, the Seaside Company, which owns high-value real estate around Santa Cruz like the Boardwalk and the Warriors Stadium, is evicting the gardeners from 40% of the half-acre garden for “landscaping purposes”. It is crucial for this space to remain open and active for the Beach Flats Community.
The city claims to be in negotiation with the Seaside Company, but eviction is set for February 1st. We need your student support to put pressure on the city in regards to the fate of the garden. Please come to our community event this Friday the 29th of January at the Nueva Vista Community Center next to Beach Flats Garden from 3 to 5 pm for more information, to meet the gardeners and the community. We will be having student performances, dancing and free food.
