City of Seaside Open Community Produce
Hello. We are students from CSU Monterey Bay and are working on a group capstone project for the City of Seaside. Our group is researching to see if there is a possibility of setting up an urban harvest fruit share in the city after a resident brought up the idea at a Seaside Environmental Committee meeting. Urban Harvests are becoming increasingly popular in cities and other urban settings and can range from neighbors sharing harvests with one another to more invested programs that collect excess harvest to share with local nonprofits. For this project we are gathering data through surveys to see if Seaside residents would like a program where they can reduce waste by sharing their excess fruit with the public. We are researching species of trees currently in Seaside, the abundance of harvest, public opinion, and sustainable practices that can be incorporated if this project were to go through.

We appreciate your time and feedback. If there are any questions that you do not wish to answer, please leave them blank. We also value your opinion and recommendations in the comments section at the end of the survey.
