Defend the Garden: Events this Week!

 

 

The City of Oakland has served an eviction notice to the Fruitvale Community Garden and we need you to defend this community space!
 
Sign the petition and come out to these community events!
 
Wednesday, April 9, 5-8pm: Community Building BBQ!
 
*Every Thursday* 5-7pm Garden work-day
 
All events are at the garden: 28th and Foothill Blvd, next to Mi Carnal

The garden was started from the grassroots, by a group of lifelong residents, neighbors, friends and organizations involved in Stop the Injunctions Coalition who envisioned that an empty plot overgrown with weeds could be a an asset rather than an eyesore; all it needed was some attention, some hands-on work, some plants and dedicated people to turn it into the wonderful space it is today.   
 
As this garden demonstrates, strong communities grow incredible things from the ground up.  Join us to defend the garden!
