come out! THIS WEEKEND, Sunday MARCH 4th
What do you want to see in the North Oakland Flatlands? Join Phat Beets Produce for a Free Community Brunch and Forum to meet your neighbors and to share your vision for a healthier, safer, more resilient North Oakland community.
Topics to include: community health, urban greening, affordable housing, food justice and beyond. Information from these breakout sessions will be used to shape the direction of community based work in the neighborhood by Phat Beets Produce and community partners. A community resource fair will also be held in the lobby of the church. Full meal will be provided including vegan and gluten free options.
Where: Bring 3 concerns, 3 big ideas and 3 of your neighbors (or more) to Bethany Baptist Church on 54th and Adeline to break bread, share ideas, dialogue, and organize a healthier North Oakland.
* Two Stop the Injunctions garden projects are in the works in the Fruitvale neighborhood on Foothill Blvd. If you live in the area or want to get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re about to do soil testing (to test for heavy metals in the ground), clear up the trash in the lots and build a vibrant community space.
* Bushrod Rec Center to be home to a beautiful mural by EastSide Arts Alliance (Leslie Lopez, Darren Villegas, Angelica Lopez, Sean Olson) and brother John Brumfeld. Bushrod families and staff love the mural and are excited to display it in their gymnasium.
They are also interested in doing a mural project with the youth in their afterschool programs. If you have resources to make this possible, please email us!
