Communities for Sustainable Monterey County


To meet the challenge of declining resources and climate change by helping our communities transition to sustainable practices.

The Big Idea

Communities for a Sustainable Monterey helps communities transition to sustainability in response to the climate crisis. By launching a Natividad Creek Park Community Garden and Learning Lab, this year’s Big Idea, the nonprofit’s vision is to build community and youth programs integrating science, technology, art, math, community health and agriculture. This organization will grow a community learning garden in Salinas, leveraging local assets to create unique opportunities, such as training on a crop data program.

I really enjoy the paid internship, and I think it's a really good experience to have over the summer. I have met a lot of people and gained a lot of new experiences. I definitely think that we should keep the internship program going and I am glad that I was one of the first students to participate.
