  • How they support the project is from donations, volunteers, and advertising. Knowing where your food comes from and how it is grown or raised enables you to choose safe food from farmers who avoid or reduce their use of chemicals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, or genetically modified seed in their operations. Buy food from local farmers you trust. Food grown locally preserves plant species because special breeding of species that can survive long distance shipping is not necessary.
  • FoodRoutes Network (FRN) is a national nonprofit organization that provides communications tools, technical support, networking, and information resources to organizations nationwide (such as CAFF) that are working to rebuild local, community-based food systems. FRN is dedicated to reintroducing Americans to their food – the seeds it grows from, the farmers who produce it, and the routes that carry it from the fields to their tables. The Brentwood Agricultural Land Trust (BALT) is an independent 501(c)(3) California nonprofit that works with farmers and the community to protect productive agricultural land and promote the economic viability and vitality of agriculture in Contra Costa County.
  • A holistic approach is required to effectively address public safety and quality of life impacts in a nightlife district.

  • O'Neill Sea Odyssey (OSO) was founded in 1996 by wetsuit innovator and surfer Jack O'Neill. A living classroom was created on board a 65-foot catamaran sailing the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary where 4th - 6th grade students from schools throughout Central California receive hands-on lessons about the marine habitat and the importance of the relationship between the living sea and the environment. The program is conducted on board the catamaran with follow-up lessons at the shore-side Education Center at the Santa Cruz Harbor. It is free of charge, but students earn their way into the program.
  • The goal of the Center for Tropical Research in Ecology, Agriculture, and Development (CenTREAD) is to foster the interdisciplinary research and training needed to understand tropical environmental issues and develop ecologically-based, economically viable, culturally respectful, non-exploitative solutions that serve as a foundation for future generations. We are a coalition of faculty and students that span a number of departments and centers on the University of California, Santa Cruz campus. CenTREAD members are involved in a wide range of natural science and social science research on tropical environmental issues, including understanding the roles of biodiversity and food web relationships in tropical forests, studying social movements and the environment, and combining cultural and agro-ecological analyses in land-use management systems. CenTREAD strives to provide training and research support for environmental scientists, land managers, and rural development specialists in tropical countries. We works towards this goal by: •providing seed grants for tropical research to graduate students from various UCSC departments , •sponsoring interdisciplinary working groups, •supporting graduate exchange programs and short courses for students from tropical regions, and •hosting international visiting scholars to UCSC.
