"The cry of 'Flower Power' echoes through the land. We shall not wilt. Let a thousand flowers bloom."
— Abbie Hoffman
Dearest city dwellers, visitors from around the world, dancers, yogis, adventurers ::
We invite you to join us for a joyful celebration of Peace, Love and Flower Power!
To bask in warmth of spring sunshine, music and mother earth! and to celebrate life with this sweet and epic community. Thebeach is our favorite place to take it all in. It's our favorite part of the city and the core of the community we've built here.
Flower power, an expression formed in the late 60's and early 70's is a symbol of passive resistance and non-violence ideology, a means to transform war protests into peacful spectacles.
Although people preached peace and love around the country, It is here, our home of San Francisco, that the hippie masses embraced the flower power ethos of "loving your neighbor" and inspired the movement of non-violent social change aound the world.
You are cordially invited to our Flower Power celebration, where, in true SF fashion, we will embrace the peace, we will love on our neighbors, and we will bask in all the beauty that is all around us.
