Grants for Winter 2023 Storm and Flood Relief
SSRF’s fundraising campaign to support farmers impacted by the Winter 2023 storms and floods resulted in generous donations from private donors ($2,500), the Silicon Valley Community Foundation ($20,000) and the Monterey County Community Foundation ($30,000). Grants of $2,500 were given to 20 farms in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey Counties. While these are small compared to the farmers’ needs, they come at a critical time as crops are being planted far behind the usual schedule. Thank you to those who donated.
The Sustainable Systems Research Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit green think tank and eco-project incubator in the Monterey Bay Area and Central Coast of California. SSRF seeks to create a sustainable Central California Coast through local, participatory community development of sustainable energy generation, regenerative and organic small farming, urban agriculture, backyard housing and real compostable food and packaging systems. Our philosophy is that the best form of activism is that which benefits the community, is reproducible, scalable and easily adopted and adapted to other places. SSRF works with our communities to help the greater society become more sustainable and just. We develop active collaborations with organizations, public agencies, funders, donors and small private companies that share our interests and goals. Our projects and programs go beyond vision to actual deployment--to function as models that can be replicated in other cities in California, the United States and the World.
