Sustainable San Marcos stewards several volunteer-led Action Committees that focus on advocacy and work in specific areas of sustainablity. Read more about these below for the different ways you can join us in our efforts to promote sustainability locally and regionally. If you are interested in becoming involved with one of these committees, Connect With Us.
Sustainable San Marcos manages two Neighborhood Gardens on land owned by the City of San Marcos, which includes the Dunbar Neighborhood Garden and Alamo Neighborhood Garden. Garden plots can be leased by anyone wanting to work their green thumb and Sustainable San Marcos' many volunteer gardeners help guide you in your food journey.
Action Committee for safe, accessible, and multimodal transportation in San Marcos
Organized in 2019, MoveSM started as an informal group of community members committed to supporting and advocating for safe, sustainable forms of transportation in San Marcos. In 2020, MoveSM joined forces with Sustainable San Marcos and today acts with the same purpose but under a common umbrella of community-wide sustainability as a transportation-focused Action Committee.
Sustainable San Marcos follows local and regional activity to inform our organization's advocacy efforts. Our Civic Action Committee leads discussion and alerts on relevant policy issues that warrant attention.
