Tasha Beauchamp, Co-Chair, Cittaslow Sebastopol Sebastopol residents have learned that WE LISTEN TO THE COMMUNITY. Our most successful projects are those where we ask for feedback and respond to citizen concerns. Grant funding does not cover these spontaneous activities. Your donations keep us nimble and responsive.
