Gardeners fear eviction, agree to vacate garden nontheless, despite protest by Jasper Lyons Tue Mar 1

Over two hundred voices chanting “¡Cuanto? Todo!” shook Santa Cruz City Hall after protesters marched from the Beach Flats Community Garden on February 9. The protesters demanded City Council work to acquire the entire garden space from Santa Cruz Seaside Company instead of the downsized area they were offered.

The community garden opened in the early ‘90s when Beach Flats residents restored an abandoned lot and turned it into a social space and a source for organic food. Seaside leased the land to the city for $1 per year from 1993-2015, ending the lease last November.
