The Hub for Sustainable Living is a Santa Cruz resource center for Do-It-Yourself, human-scale technology and an advocate for livable, interconnected communities. Our projects provide access to space, resources, and educational opportunities through demonstration, outreach , and hands-on learning. Sustainable Living includes appropriate use of materials (salvage, reclamation, recycling), human-powered transportation (bicycles, skateboards, feet), and skill-building that empowers people to meet their needs in a self-sufficient and affordable manner using second-hand materials and local goods. We strive to create a diverse, safe, and inclusive environment, and we embrace collective organizing and consensus decision-making. We seek to shape society around our shared values.
With the new mission statement we have come also to a new name: we are now the
Santa Cruz Hub for Sustainable Living!
With this widening of scope we welcome a new project into our organization and the Fabrica sewing collective.
