The Santa Cruz Hub for Sustainable Living supports skill-sharing, appropriate use of resources, and human-powered transportation. Though it is more of a constellation of fairly autonomous projects, the Hub manages and coordinates the activities centered around the facility in downtown Santa Cruz. The Hub community includes the People Power, SubRosa Community Space, the Bike Church, The Fabrica, PedEx, and the Computer Kitchen.
I served on the board from 2008 until the present. I helped facilitate the Hub’s transition from a focus on human-powered transportation to the broader focus on sustainable living, and continue to help the Hub move toward organizational sustainability.
