What is the Hub?
The Hub for Sustainable Living is both an umbrella non-profit and a community center located at 703 Pacific Avenue in downtown Santa Cruz. We are a constellation of projects that support skill-sharing, appropriate re/use of resources, and interconnected, creative communities. The Hub is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and sponsors a number of groups, both at the community center (including the Bike Church) and elsewhere. Our projects provide access to space, resources, and educational opportunities through demonstration, outreach, and hands-on learning.
Sustainable living includes appropriate use of materials, human-powered transportation, skill-building that empowers people to meet their needs in a self-sufficient and affordable manner, active solidarity with people facing coercive forces and the support and nurturance of creative culture, which includes art and shared expression. We seek to shape society around our shared values.
The Hub has been building and celebrating community since 1994! Learn more at santacruzhub.org.
