Upcoming Events At This Venue

April 27, 2014

We are hosting this Open House in order to reconnect with our community, highlight some of our accomplishments, outline the expanded vision and identify the different ways for you to participate.

We are excited to announce that after three years building out PLACE for Sustainable Living, we have secured a new five year lease under our newly formed cooperative, OakLeyVille. This lease enables us to continue building our collective vision of a dynamic educational center for urban sustainability and regenerative practices. We will be celebrating this good news at our upcoming three-year anniversary event: Creating Commons Festival, Saturday, May 10, 2014.

PLACE will continue to serve our educational and sustainability showcase goals, as Oakleyville will grow its membership into a multi-stakeholder cooperative serving its Workers, Makers and the Community at large.  Please join us as we enter the next chapter of this co-creative place.

Space is limited.

PLACE for Sustainable Living is organizing the Creating Commons Festival for our 3rd year anniversary. This street festival features educational skillshares, clothing swaps, crop swaps, garden installations, public art, local art, music, and placemaking projects that reimagine and re-energize the creation of the public commons throughout our neighborhood. It will occur on three closed streets as well as our sustainability center at the confluence of Northwest Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville, in our neighborhood village of “OakLeyVille”.

Come to our first 2014 Hootenanny since we shut down during the winter months! This is our monthly benefit for PLACE, so expect it EVERY 2nd Saturday at least until November (weather permitting). We feature local bluegrass, old time appalachian, hillbilly, and jugband sounds! Always great music, a firepit, and home-made cob-oven pizzas. Bring your friends and your dancin’ shoes (or stompin’ feet)
