There are eight community gardens in the Oakland system: three up toward Temescal and Emeryville, three smack dab in the heart of it all (right around downtown), and two down toward San Leandro.
I know I said making a Google map of the garden locations was the most nerdy thing I could possibly do, but I have to say, it clarified some things for me. I probably never would have clicked through to the description of the Marston Campbell garden if I hadn’t seen it is basically the closest to my apartment building. And I certainly wouldn’t, then, have known that this particular garden is also where the Oakland Based Urban Gardens kids do their work.
I’m ready to put my name on the list. Here goes nothin’.
