Keep Oakland Beautiful Mini Grant

Last summer we applied to a Keep Oakland Beautiful grant to build 3 raised beds.
The purpose in building the beds is to increase community participation in the garden.
Seniors and less-abled persons in the neighborhood can now come and join us on Wednesday afternoons and on the first Sunday of every month. We are in conversation with a teacher at a local school to see if this fall we can start an intergenerational (children and seniors) gardening project using the raised beds.

Above are a few photos showing the first phase of the construction! Jeremy and Sean were our lead carpenters and Amalia and Steven the main helpers, but many more folks came together to lend a hand.
