Sustainable Seaside is a group of concerned citizens of the City of Seaside, CA, working locally toward solutions to global environmental challenges. As a Local Group formed by Communities for Sustainable Monterey County (http://www. sustainablemontereycounty.org/ index.html), we have organized a tour of local homes, parks, and gardens to present work in progress by ordinary people interested in a more sustainable lifestyle. Our goal is to live in a way that conserves precious resources and adds creativity, beauty, and fun to the neighborhood while building a sense of community.
We are reaching out to other ordinary people who want to live in a more sustainable way, but may not know where to begin. We also want to meet and learn from others who are working on their own versions of sustainable living. The various projects and presentations you will see on the tour are based on the 4-Rs of sustainability—Reduce, Reuse, Repair, and Recycle—and our interests in raising plants and animals for food and enjoyment in harmony with nature. To the extent we have any great expertise, it has been from trying things, asking questions, and sharing with others. Come share with us and meet your neighbors.
