The Sustainable Systems Research Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit green think tank and project incubator in Santa Cruz, California. SSRF seeks to create a sustainable Central California Coast through local, participatory community development of sustainable energy generation, urban agriculture, backyard housing and compostable design and procurement and disposal. Our philosophy is that the best form of activism is that which benefits the community, is reproducible and scalable and easily adopted and adapted to other places.SSRF strives to be an active participant in working to make our community and society to become more sustainable and just. We develop active collaborations with organizations, public agencies and small private companies that share our interests and goals. Our projects and programs go beyond vision to actual deployment and to function as models that can be replicated in other cities and towns in California, the United States and the World.
