Welcome to Sustainable Seaside

Growing Healthy!

Sustainable Seaside and Sustainable Pacific Grove are joining up to launch a project in 2024 to encourage families to grow their own food at home.  The project, Our Families Grow Healthy, is a project that empowers families to take charge of their health, environment, and future, through home gardening.

Cultivate Change in our Community by Supporting this Project!

Make a donation, no matter how big or small, during the 2023 Monterey County Gives! community fundraising campaign.  Your gift will directly support families and individuals in our community as they make home gardening part of their sustainable household practices.  Participating families will receive mentoring, soil and equipment to build a home garden, and guidance through the first growing cycle.  

Make a donation now through midnight December 31st and it will be increased by a dollar-for-dollar matching grant!

Sustainable Seaside Supports the Campus Town project

Sustainable Seaside heartily supports the Campus Town project to be built in Seaside on the former Fort Ord.  The project will transform a broad expanse of urban blight into a mixed-use walkable, bikeable, urban village with green spaces, hundreds of affordable housing units, and will bring much-needed jobs to Seaside. We proudly wear our “We Campus Town” buttons to express our support. It’s Seaside’s Time!

Who We Are and What We Do

We are a group of concerned local citizens working locally to help our communities equitably implement sustainable and regenerative practices to slow and adapt to climate change. Through innovative actions, we promote and enable expanded conservation of non-renewable resources, a change in the quality of urban growth, a merging of economic and environmental stewardship, and the long-term well-being of people and the planet. Sustainable Seaside is one of eight local action groups in Monterey County founded by, and working in collaboration with Communities for Sustainable Monterey County, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
