Really Really Free Market and more!!!

Greetings all!  It's been awhile since our last SubRosa announcement post - and we're still here!  A year ago we had our last show at SubRosa (here's website post from a year ago about happenings at SubRosa -  And a few days after we decided to shut down because of the spreading pandemic, before the shelter in place was declared in Santa Cruz - little did we know how long and deep an impact the COVID-19 pandemic would have on us all.  Now more than ever we are committed to community health and well being and to nurturing a community space to learn and grow and explore and share - for relationships beyond measure, in the here and now.

And here's some information about some happenings at SubRosa 
and around Santa Cruz in the days ahead...

-This Sunday! 11 - 2pm - Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. With pandemic protocols- let's share community care!
We all have something to share with each other... and to receive with gratitude is also a gift. This gathering is not about the "stuff" we give and take, but more about how we can freely give and receive from each other.  This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the really really free market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. More info at Really Really Free Market at SubRosa Instagram AND RRFM at SubRosa Facebook event

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
