East Bay Neighbor just learned of a couple of interesting events that are happening in Berkeley over the next few weeks. The first is on July 4th. the West Berkeley Neighborhood Associations are hosting a block party! Its on Chaucer Street between San Pablo and Curtis from 2-4. There will be a pot luck, barbeque, Green Fairy Farm animals, Yeast bay Brewery Home brew, Carole's lemons, white elephant stuff, home made crafts, back yard produce, live music with the Scottish Fiddler Society and more. this is a great opportunity to learn a alot about Berkeley's Left Bank Neighborhood by meeting neighbors and participating in the local get-to-gether
If you are interested in Urban farming, the Magic Gardens Nursery is hosting a kind of get to know chickens weekend on July 17 and 18. There will be demonstrations by Montclaire's 4-H club including showmanship techniques, as well as models of new types of chicken coops and cabanas. The Urban farm movement is growing and more and more folks want to raise their own chickens. If this appeals to you this is a great opportunity for learning, as well as networking with others of similar interest.
North Oakland is starting a new farmers market on Saturdays from 9-2 right behind 5715 Market Street. this is a sign of things to come in this up and coming neighborhood!
